Publisher's Summary

AD 377: when Optio Numerius Vitellius Pavo and a select group of the XI Claudia are summoned to the Persian front, they leave Thracia behind, knowing little of what awaits them. They know only that they are to march into a burning land of strange gods. They whisper tales of the mighty Persian Savaran cavalry and pray to Mithras they will see their homes and families again. 

All too soon it becomes clear to them that this is no ordinary mission - indeed, the very fate of the empire might rest upon their efforts. But for Pavo the burden is weightier still, for he knows that the east also holds something even more precious to him...the truth about his father.

A series of events won by Deus ex machina

Whilst well written, the story is punctuated by more than just a few close calls rescued by Deus ex machina, but the worst is the final battle.
A few minutes of Salt spray exposure on a beach should not rapidly affect the integrity of a composite bow. That is just a cheap exit clause the author came up with to protect his protagonists against overwhelming odds.
If this is the norm in his books, I do think think i'll be buying any more.
I hate giving bad reviews, because of the hard work out into a production like this. Make up your own mind.
