Publisher's Summary

55 BC and Caesar's army gathers in the north of Gaul, preparing to drive away invading Germanic peoples and to traverse the dangerous northern ocean bringing punishment to the tribes of Britannia for their assistance of Gaulish rebels. But Fronto's troubles don't stop there.

As his burgeoning relationship with Lucilia steps to a new level, so do his responsibilities at home, a situation exacerbated by the disruptive influence of the villainous Clodius in the city, causing trouble and endangering those about whom Fronto cares most.

With two troublesome new centurions, a selection of worthless and argumentative senior officers and the suspicious deaths of a number of notables, Fronto's year is about to take a turn for the unexpected.

I character you can fall in love with

The writer creates characters that you can fall in love with. He has an excellent ability to fill in all the minute details of ancient life . The writer artful describes battles. And always keeps the plot moving.

I'm obsessed with this series Love it

More battles and intrigue as we go to Brittan. But a revolt is brewing back home. This one is not up to the previous three. Or it maybe I need a break. Still love the characters and the battles, the detail. Fun Read nonetheless.

Real History? Who Cares It’s a Novel

Story has a credible time line and the Characters fit nicely. With all of the conclusions made around small fragments of questionable authors how much do we really know anyway. The real truth is that I enjoyed this book. I have read a great deal of “real history” which only made this book more fun. I have read (listened) to all of this series and I know I’ll listen again as I often do to historical fiction. So much fun. Got through Gibbons well almost and that will never be revisited. I do have one complaint if you’re outside you fall on the ground not the floor this happens several times and just bothers me. I hope I’m not making an error like readers complaining when authors refer to corn rather than grain that is a translation thing . . . grain, corn, maze read a book.

Best Book so Far!

Can't get enough of the adventures of Fronto. You know a book is well written when you are actually concerned about the fate of the characters in it and thats how I felt at several points in this book. Already have downloaded book 5...

Brilliant !

I've done all Adrian Goldsworthy, all Simon Scarrow but this serious I'm really loving.
This one in particular, especially the first chapter with old grumpy Fronto I was in stitches, absolutely love the humour and the narration is very easy to listen to...

Twists and turns

The plot turns this way and that, the battles are gory and brilliantly wrought, the characters well rounded and fascinating. Another great adventure for our Roman soldier and his family.

Best of the series yet

With more twists and turns (albeit predictable ones) it adds layers to the story.
S.J.A Turkey’s ability to make you like and care for characters, gives meaning and weight to all aspects of this story.
Thoroughly enjoyable! Look forward to the next one

Exceptional..again!

This book, like the three before it, is absolutely top notch. Fast, action filled with a tapestry of intense story lines which will have you spending many late nights with the 'one more chapter' feeling.

The battles. Oh the battles! Some authors have the ability to transfer you into extreme scenes of epic levels, and Turney is a master of this! Detail rich, plausible and devilishly brutal.

Right there next to Ben Kane, Anthony Riches, Simon Scarrow and Christian Cameron. IMO an elite group of writers who make me immediately get the next book every time!
