The Silver Branch by Rosemary Sutcliff

Marcus Aquila’s son, Flavius, along with his cousin Justin are young members of the legion. They cross the wrong person and must flee. When they chance upon the eagle hidden by Marcus years before, they know they must rally the right people to save Roman Britain.

If I wasn’t pre-reading this series for my son to read next year in school, I would not have read The Silver Branch after reading the first book in the series. This would have been a mistake. The Silver Branch was so much better and more enjoyable. I recommend this book to anyone interested in history (it’s not totally necessary to read the first book first).
