Tony Roberts continues the saga of Casca the Eternal Mercenary with the 25th installment in the series, “The Halls of Montezuma.”

Casca, as Case Lonnergan wends his way through the Mid-Atlantic states, from Piladelphia to Virginia. He performs his usual good deeds (for a family of immigrants this time), in his usual brutal manner and makes enemies along the way that will dog his trail from the eastern seaboard to Texas and even to the vaunted Halls of Montezuma!

How Casca handles himself in the Mexican War and battles those hot on his trail for revenge, makes this book another of the great ones in the Casca series.

As is so often the case, though I’m something of a history buff, I was very educated in many aspects of not only the war but also the problems that many immigrants faced in America once they landed on our shores. In this respect, Tony Roberts continues the tradition of historical accuracy that Barry Sadler was so superb at.

Tony shows respect for earlier novels in the series by referring back to some, and specifically to Casca’s last visit to Mexico. There are also hints of where Casca will be in future novels.

And if this wasn’t enough for fans of Casca, the Eternal Mercenary has The Brotherhood of the Lamb to contend with as they team up with those so anxious for Casca’s head on a platter!

Thanks for the review Steve. Anyone else have a review of any Casca book they’d like to share with us? I remember Adam France’s excellent reviews last year of the first 9 in chronological order. Steve’s review here is also good in that it doesn’t contain any spoilers, so those who haven’t read the book yet won’t have had the plotline given away.
