5.0 out of 5 stars Marius Mules VI - Caesar's Vow by SJA Turney
Those of you who have read the previous volumes in this series may not find it hard to believe but I will say it anyway...they just keep getting better. The author left himself a considerable task at the end of book 4...to refresh your memory it is there that the main fictional character, Marcus Falerius Fronto, has a major falling out with his friend and commanding...

3.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately not as good as previous books in series
Really enjoyed earlier books in the series but the latest book had far less emphasis on the characters and so was far less engaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great,
As ever the adventures of Fronto and his friends make you never want to put the book down, until you have to.
5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another good read,
The series is good and looking forward to the next, although one is aware of the historical results the books are still a good read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Marius Mules saga goes on,
A very good read of the uprising in gaul and about the people who live under the hard live of the legions of Rome it keeps you reading this book till you finish it and want the next book to see what happens next
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as always,
Mr Turney writes another great story and moves the tale of Caeser's Gallic conquest towards its inevitable Waterloo. The reader should be warned though, whilst the other books dealt with warfare as a nasty event in which some civilians became unintentionally involved this book deals with warfare at its most brutal. These are not friendly legions come to liberate the Gauls from their own despotic kings or from foreign invaders; these legions are terrifying, brutal, bloody destroyers. Caesar didn't conquer the Belgae as such, he almost wiped them from the earth.
I look forward to book VII with great anticipation; keep up the good work Mr Turney.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing,
Great book could not put it down lots of edge of your seat moments can't wait for the next installment
5.0 out of 5 stars Book VII,
Excellent, excellent, excellent.
Loads of twists and turns, I can't say much more than read it, read it, read it.
In conclusion, I can't wait for book V11.
I think the whole series thus far has been entertaining.
5.0 out of 5 stars MM V1,
The series just keeps on getting better, with V11 looking as though it is going to be explosive. A must read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great series,
Another addition to what is an exciting and enjoyable series, the character's are constantly growing in what has been so far a series hard to put down
5.0 out of 5 stars MMVI,
How I have enjoyed this latest adventure with Fronto. It really is a privilege to have come so far on his journey, I sincerely hope that Simon is currently in the process of creating MMVII - I cannot wait to read that too. In the meantime Prelude is waiting! Thank so much SJAT another great book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic,
Another awesome book by Mr Turney. Simon has now mastered the art of starting slow then BANG, he hits you with a big punch and they just keep rolling in, in a manner very similar to Tony Riches books. This particular book must have been a difficult one to write, particularly when you look at the non-events of that particular year, but he has managed it in a way that wants you wishing 2014 was over so MMvii was on the shelves.
I've read all the big Roman authors, Mrs Kane, Scarrow, Iggulden, Saylor, Higginbotham, Jackson, Riches and Ms Scott (sorry if I missed anyone out), and Simon is a welcome addition to the #JAFRA brigade. Keep up the good work.
