Product Description

About the Author

I live with my wife, my son and two (close approximations of) dogs in rural North Yorkshire, where my wife and I both grew up, surrounded by friends and family. A born and bred Yorkshireman with a love of the country, I cannot envisage spending my life anywhere else, though my anchor is sometimes tested as the wanderlust hits and we travel wherever I can find the breathtaking remains of the classical world. I have a love of travel and history, architecture and writing and those four interact well enough to keep me almost permanently busy. Since leaving school and University, I have tried a great number of careers, including car sales, insurance, software engineering, computer network management, civil service and even painting and decorating sales. I have lived in four counties and travelled as widely as time and budget allowed and find myself, on the cusp of my fortieth year, back where I began and finally doing something I love. Having written a number of unpublished short stories in my early days, I decided back in 2003 to try and write a full length novel. That was the start of Marius' Mules. Being a lover of Roman history, I decided to combine my love of writing and my love of classical history. Marius' Mules was followed two years later by Interregnum, my attempt to create a new fantasy story still with a heavy flavour of Rome. Since then, the success and popularity of both has spawned sequels to each work, with three or more tales in each series so far and more planned.

I read all 4 of these books in the space of a few weeks, one after the other, finishing this one only a few days ago - and I am already missing Fronto and his adventures with his wine-drinking mates!! All 4 books are set in the 1st century BC around Julius Caesar's campaigns in Gaul (for those with a weak disposition, please note that some of the battle narrative is rather detailed, gruesome and violent!), it is so well written you can't help but feel like you are there with the characters, love the fact that the Gauls seem to have northern accents and between battles the main characters like to pop to the pub (a lot!!)

I am not an expert on roman history, battles or politics, but it made me want to find out about the real events, people and places that these stories take their inspiration from - and from what I can tell they're pretty close to the reality of Ceasars invasion of Gaul over the same 4 year period, although the only Fronto I could find that excelled in battle and became a Legate was a Marcus Claudius Fronto from the second century AD (killed in battle 170 AD)

Regardless of fact and fiction the stories are a wonderfully entertaining and absorbing read, so I hope that if you pick these books up you enjoy them as much as I did - and please, please Mr Turney, I do hope there are more tales of Fronto on the way . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Without doubt the best in the series so far. Mr Turney expertly deals with the action of Caesar's legions' push across the Rhine and then into England, whilst simulaneously personalising, through Frodo's sister and betrothed, the increasingly politicised violence erupting in Rome. Lets hope Frontos knee get better soon. Bring on the Rubicon

When I reviewed MM III on here I said that although the books were very 'samey', I was hooked and probably would read the lot. Well, after MM IV, I think I need a break. Although I enjoy the accuracy and storytelling of the campaign in Gaul, I sometimes just want to give Fronto a thump. His moodyness, and the completely unrealistic relationship with Caeser detracts from the real narrative of what happened in Gaul, and frankly Caeser would have had a Legate hung, drawn and quartered for addressing him in the manner that Fronto does. For me, the author just takes Fronto's character too far. You can summarise these books: Fronto gets drunk; Fronto falls out with Caeser; Fronto gets drunk again; Fronto gets injured; Fronto gets drunk again; Fronto foils a plot; Fronto gets drunk again; Fronto saves the day; Fronto gets drunk again. I need a rest.

Great series of books and book 4 is no let down
If you like Simon Scarrows' tales of Cato and Macro then this is a book for you.
It is very well written with a good story line - Roman Legions, lots of action with down to earth characters and just enough history.
I would definitely recommend this book to any historical fiction fan.

This the best kept secret in book writing, i loved every page and can't wait for any follow up books, this is as good a s Simon Scarrow, the plots are great and the stories twist and turn to keep you on edge.

Having read the previous books in the series I was looking forward to this one. However I felt the characters were a little two dimensional and could have been developed more. At times it felt more like a narrative than a story.

Not sure where the series is going now. Fronto is acting more like a teenager who has discovered the world isn't perfect than an aging hardened veteran of a very brutal [from our current point of view] time in history. There was lots of good in this novel but when the central character seems to have lost his way then its a problem. The book has all the elements of the first 3 in the series which were all 5 star but the balancing of character relationships v action v thriller has, in my opinion, gone astray.
It won''t stop me from buying the next in the series but unless it gets back to describing a fascinating time in history from the view of our friend Legate Fronto instead of describing his angst and problems with a side show of what was happening in history I might struggle to continue.

Have just finished Marius' Mules IV and found it to be as excellent as the previous three, with one criticism. The ending seemed rather rushed and totally out of step with the pace and intensity of the rest of the story. In fact it almost felt like it had been written by someone else. However, I find Mr Turney an outstanding writer of this genre and with a great knowledge of Roman military life and the Caesar campaigns.

The book's abrupt ending leaves the reader with the impression that this will be the last of the Mules series, yet the story leaves enough unfinished threads for at least two further books. I for one will be very disappointed if this does end the series as I have only recently discovered Mr Turney and I would certainly rate his work on a par with Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell. Once you start reading you just don't want to put the book (or Kindle) down. So come on Mr Turney - will there be a Mules V?
