One of our family's favorite historical novel series!

In 119 A.D., the Ninth Legion marched into the mists of Northern Britain--and they were never seen again. Four thousand men disappeared and their eagle standard was lost. It's a mystery that's never been solved, until now . . . Marcus has to find out what happened to his father, who led the legion. So he sets out into the unknown, on a quest so dangerous that nobody expects him to return.

"Sutcliff has a genius for the re-creation of an historical period."--"Horn Book Reflections"

"An unusual blend of stirring action and poetic symbolism. Authentic in background, skillful in plot, and perceptive in characterization." --"Booklist"

"Decades later, I can still hear echoes of The Eagle of the Ninth in my head: the chink of mail, the tired beat of the legionaries' feet."--"The Independent"
