Seattle Times Book Editor loves The Eagle of the Ninth this week | Sutcliff Review of the Week

Mary Ann Gwin wrote on Christmas Day

As a youngster I was enthralled by this novel (The Eagle of the Ninth) by Rosemary Sutcliff, about a young Roman soldier determined to find out what happened to his father, whose legion disappeared without a trace in Northern Britain in the second century A.D. Now “Eagle” has been made into a movie, scheduled for release in 2011 (with Donald Sutherland, Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell). And the first three books in the series, including “Eagle,” “The Lantern Bearers” and “The Silver Branch,” have been reissued by Square Fish for a new generation to discover.
