    Summary

    Flavia Aquila, daughter of the primus pilum of the ill-fated Ninth Legion, was herself a centurion — until she was wounded at Isca Dumnonorium and her secret discovered. Nearly two years later, she rides into the wild North of Britannia to learn what happened to her father, his Legion, and its Eagle standard. Alongside her rides Esca, the fierce, loyal, and strangely beautiful slave whose life she saved at the Games at Calleva and whom her uncle bought for her. Beyond the Wall, their relationship will change profoundly — and Flavia will learn what became of her father and his men.

    Summary

    Recently retired, Aquila is travelling to Britannia with a single slave and a cart full of worldly goods. Through nasty betrayal, he suffers an appalling accident, and is left alone, unfortunate and in peril. Subsequently, Aquila grows wise through contemplation of fate. He advances a good centaur's well-being by way of practical aid and sage advice given in a matter of honour of an abducted nymph. He finds his fortune restored, and continues on to Londinium a rich man.

    A story in the style of the Decameron.

    Summary

    How Esca really won his freedom. A mix of The Eagle (film) and The Eagle of the Ninth (book). This story tells the truth that neither the film nor the book dared tell! Involves, amongst other things, the sexual motivations of the three main characters: Marcus, Esca and Placidus.

    Summary

    Contains: Placidus with curly Greek hair. A Legate who is Egyptian, like in the book, not a chubby white guy like in the film. Roman Imperialism. Mostly-failed attempt at improbable crossover with Le Carré.

    It seemed to me just a little bit neat that Esca met the Tribune Placidus on a wolf hunt, then a year later, Placidus came with his Legate to stay with Uncle Aquila. And it’s also quite neat that Uncle Aquila’s old friend the Legate, who hasn’t seen him for 18 years, comes to visit with a pressing piece of news about the Eagle having been seen in the far North - a piece of news that is uniquely important to Marcus. And of course there is Placidus - such an annoying jerk, coming out with awkward truths at just the right moment to push Marcus the right way. Then, when Marcus and Esca get back to Calleva against all the odds, there’s the Legate - not based in Calleva - coincidentally staying with Uncle Aquila again!

    What if those aren’t all coincidences?

    Thanks to smillaraaq for beta reading and many helpful suggestions. Any stupid mistakes are probably in the bits I added on afterwards. And philmophlegm for helping me work out what the Legate was doing in Rome.

    Summary

    In which Marcus is a historical novelist and almost all the characters are Roman-British historical reenactors; a romance in emails and bickering over historical details, with guest appearances by EVERYONE. (Rating is for a few slightly dirty text exchanges, nothing explicit.)
