The further adventures of Frontier &co

This is a great series, continuing the story of Julius Caesar. Brilliant covering of siege in Alexandria, this time in the life of Caesar is virtually ignored by the history books. Always great to find an author who is not frightened to explore the miniscule parts of history. Keep them coming Mr Turney.

I love this series.

Another awesome read from Mr. Turney. Fronto is one of my all time favourite characters. Especially now he's getting older and I can empathize with him. I never give spoilers because in my opinion, you should read the books. 5 stars all the way. Brilliant as usual.

Great action throughout the novel.The fight scenes are well scripted and settings

well detailed. Cleopatra,however is not really fleshed out. Perhaps the next book in the series will have her as a more significant presence.

Once more a winner

Again, I enjoyed being with Fronto and his mates. He seems to foster some great young men, turning them into great hero’s. Really did not like Cleopatra before and definitely not now. Thank you again for a great read.

Have read them all. This was a little slow in places but Fronto is his usual heroic self even at his age!

Simon lives with his wife and children and a menagerie of animals in rural North Yorkshire, where he sits in an office, wired on coffee and digestive biscuits, and attempts to spin engrossing tales out of strands of imagination while his children drive toys across his desk and two dogs howl as they try to share a brain cell.

A born and bred Yorkshireman with a love of country, history and architect
