The war in Gaul is over, but the fight for Rome is only just beginning. Denied his consulship by the senate and nearing the end of his term as governor, Caesar waits at Ravenna with one legion, making a last attempt at reconciliation. Threatened with prosecution if he returns to Rome, just one path is becoming clear: war against the senate.

The test of any long running series is how eager the readers are for the next volume; whether they are still as excited by the anticipation of the next volume as they were for the second or third. It is inevitable that the occasional entry will disappoint. Perhaps because events don't follow the path the reader wants; after all, we come to know the main characters and have our own expectations of them. Perhaps the author just had a poor spell. Sometimes financial considerations - particularly fr ...more

The Rubicon River, a rather insignificant stream with a rather major significance.  Fronto is once again with Gaius Julius Caesar and follows him across that river and into open rebellion against fellow Romans.  In MM X, the author presents the events of Caesar's siege of Massilia and his campaign in Hispania against Pompey's legions.  In a nice bit of plot interweaving, we find Fronto, once again in charge of a legion, with Caesar at Ilerda while at the same time he is also mentally occupied wi ...more

Mr. Turney did it again. He sucked me in from the first page and left me wanting more. I stopped reading when I had 89% because I just didn't want the book to end, but alas I finished it and now I have to wait until next summer? c'mon.
X is a good book about, in Turney's words, a boring part of Roman history. But Fronto keeps drinking, fighting, lip-ing off and winning.

Thank you for writing and doing a good job. I appreciate that I don't have to sift through modern cursing throughout. You are a

To compliment or to complement

The improper usage of compliment and complement again rears its ugly head in this novel, as it does in many of the previous books. Also, confidant and confidante are misapplied. These are but two examples of many. The fact that these two recur in virtually every book suggests the editors/proofreaders haven't the foggiest notion of the difference and cannot dismiss the misuse as simple typos. Truly appalling editing!

Another great Marius Mules book.

Loved this book just like the first nine. They just keep getting better as we get to know the people and how they are injected into history. True some of the history has been tweeted but not too badly and has stayed pretty true to the times as we progress to know them.

This is my second time reading the series of Fronto, brilliant in every way. Intrege action, fact brilliantly mixed with fiction. Mr Turney is a master of his trade. Can't wait for No eleven and must the series end at fifteen. Everything from Mr Turney is brilliant, thank you keep them coming.

Excellent read which left me wanting to buy the next as the author has blended actual history with characters both fictional and historical. Fronto is feeling aged but still up for a good fight, and Caesar himself is clearly very ambitious.

Very enjoyable!

It is clear the author enjoys writing about his subjects and has a great understanding of the days of Cesarean domination of the Gauls and the Iberian peninsula. A page turner.

Caesar crosses the Rubicon in one of histories biggest moments and civil war with Pompey and the senate ensues. There is a lot of coming and going between Italy and Spain, but this is a fascinating look into the narrative beyond the usual textbook. Good stuff!

What a great complete series.

If you like Roman battle stories these are for you. Can't put them down once started. Bated breath for next episode.

Love the stories of Fronto as he serves Caesar so well in his own way. This own brings us to the start of the Civil War which I know so little about but as usual the author brings history alive with fun, mishap and heroics.
