    Once again I found myself enthralled by a book by S.J.A Turney That shouldn t be so easy as this series takes place in one of my favorite periods of ancient history and involves some of thecolorful powerful men in Rome s history and as such I expect a lot from writers who tackle those subject matters I have yet to be disappointed by Mr Turney s efforts At the end of MM IV the main character in the series, Marcus Falerius Fronto had a seemingly irreparable falling out with Caesar which Once again I found myself enthralled by a book by S.J.A Turney That shouldn t be so easy as this series takes place in one of my favorite periods of ancient history and involves some of thecolorful powerful men in Rome s history and as such I expect a lot from writers who tackle those subject matters I have yet to be disappointed by Mr Turney s efforts At the end of MM IV the main character in the series, Marcus Falerius Fronto had a seemingly irreparable falling out with Caesar which means he will be spending this campaigning season in Rome and Puteoli instead of Britain and Gaul Trouble andfinds him anyway in many guises, from the maddened Pompey to a revenge seeking German, no place is safe for Fronto or his family and friends.Meanwhile, Caesar has his own difficulties in Britain and then with the threat of a somewhat united Gaul rising up against him With his officer corps somewhat depleted, Caesar finds it necessary to bring in experienced men from other legions Thus the author introduces, who because of the HBO series, Rome, are probably known to most of us already Titus Pullo and Lucius Vorenus have important roles to play as senior centurions in the 14th Legion There are differences between the Rome versions and the two crafted by the author one of them being the fact that they are both centurions and Pullo is thesenior of the two I think that it is interesting to note that Pullo and Vorenus , I believe, are the only two legionaries mentioned by name in Caesar s War Commentaries so it is only fitting that they play their part in Marius Mules, although I do conjure up the faces of Kevin McKidd and Ray Stevenson when reading their parts in the book.The dual plots are handled in such a way that it seems each scene ends in a cliff hanging scenario which only spurs the reader to keep going in spite of the lateness of the hour With each volume in this series the main characters keep progressing in their development, those that survive anyway as the author has a knack for surprises when it comes to not only the intrigue of the story lines but with who gets rubbed out Not that that is a bad thing, war and other nefarious characters are always ready to claim a victim or two, though I have found myself shouting at the ceiling, oh my God, he killed so and so Like a devious devising Kronos, S.J.A Turney weaves a tale of intrigue and action in Marius Mules V Hades Gate Like the previous volumes in this series Hades Gate is historical fiction at it s best Great time of history, wonderful characters and the raw power of a Roman Legion shield wall have me looking longingly forward to Marius Mules VIthey just keep getting better

    I like the way Mr Turney has incorporated the geologic peculiarities of Puteoli into the novel Mr Turney is steadily improving his saga with each book in the series I heartily recommend all of them I like how the novel is laid out month by month, subdivided into chapters, with three plots Fronto, his family, associates and enemies in Rome and Puteoli Caesar and his legions in Gaul, then his abortive expedition to Britannia, then back to Gaul, first from Roman POV, then from native POV T I like the way Mr Turney has incorporated the geologic peculiarities of Puteoli into the novel Mr Turney is steadily improving his saga with each book in the series I heartily recommend all of them I like how the novel is laid out month by month, subdivided into chapters, with three plots Fronto, his family, associates and enemies in Rome and Puteoli Caesar and his legions in Gaul, then his abortive expedition to Britannia, then back to Gaul, first from Roman POV, then from native POV This divided the book better for me I read slower and would stop at the end of a few sections I certainly admire the author s originality in devising battle plans and the actual fighting, each time Battles in small chunks agree with meI liked the wedding and reception, the idea of the Potemkin fort near the conclusion in Gaul, and the action involving the Nervi courier I only caught a few anachronistic expressions or words, e.g., sauna I had wondered how Fronto would return to military life after his irreparable break with Caesar That aspect was handled very well The character building goes on apace we find out a bitabout each main character I liked the new minor characters introduced into this novel, except that the villains were really Beyond the Pale I m glad the women were given a bigger role and Lucilia had the last word About Fronto s physical training of course that s setting up for the next installment, but it was a graphic illustration of the lesson that no one does something if people keep nagging personal desire to master something has to come from one s own motivation

    I am a little ashamed to say that Marius Mules Hades Gate is the first self published novel I have read I now wish I had not waited so long.SJA Turney writes with the skill, fluency and detail a reader would expect from a successful novelist on their fifth instalment in a series and in MMV he has created a wonderful multi layered story following the stories of two main characters, Fronto in Rome and Priscus in Gaul The supporting cast is large and although that can be a little overwhelming I am a little ashamed to say that Marius Mules Hades Gate is the first self published novel I have read I now wish I had not waited so long.SJA Turney writes with the skill, fluency and detail a reader would expect from a successful novelist on their fifth instalment in a series and in MMV he has created a wonderful multi layered story following the stories of two main characters, Fronto in Rome and Priscus in Gaul The supporting cast is large and although that can be a little overwhelming they are all well drawn, interesting characters who all add to the richness of the story His description of battle is riveting and he manages to capture the sheer horror and the gory brutality of war as it must have been for the men of the period There is an earthy realism to Mr Turney s writing and although it can be grim, it certainly makes for a gripping read.I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of the twin storylines but I was occasionally aware that MMV is just one part of a series Of course that means I will now seek out and buy the four books that preceded MMV so perhaps Mr Turney is one step ahead of me there As an e book MMV is available for around half the price of a mocha chocha frapaccino If that isn t seriously good value then I do not know what is I for one will happily buy all the books Mr Turney feels able to write and I am already looking forward to the next instalment in the Marius s Mules series

    Another winner Hades gate is the fifth outing for Simon Turneys fronto and another fine addition to the series it is This book sees fronto in rome sorting out problems at home while Ceaser campaigns in gaul with his legions, the twin story lines working well to keep the story flowing with the action coming thick and fast both in rome, gaul and a Brittania This is a cracking series and in my humble opinion far superior to Simon Scarrows Macro and Catto series which i feel is way past its sell b Another winner Hades gate is the fifth outing for Simon Turneys fronto and another fine addition to the series it is This book sees fronto in rome sorting out problems at home while Ceaser campaigns in gaul with his legions, the twin story lines working well to keep the story flowing with the action coming thick and fast both in rome, gaul and a Brittania This is a cracking series and in my humble opinion far superior to Simon Scarrows Macro and Catto series which i feel is way past its sell buy date Highly Recommended

    I feel like Hades Gate is a turning point in Simon Turney s series about Fronto, and a clear improvement on Marius Mules Conspiracy of Eagles In fact, my 3 star rating may be a bit harsh and in fact deserve 4 stars, so this should not stop you from reading it I effectively deducted one point for what I felt was a unnecessarily graphic torture scene while I understand s Simon like of detail and accuracy, I would have preferred a slightly tempered version In general, I think Simon has d I feel like Hades Gate is a turning point in Simon Turney s series about Fronto, and a clear improvement on Marius Mules Conspiracy of Eagles In fact, my 3 star rating may be a bit harsh and in fact deserve 4 stars, so this should not stop you from reading it I effectively deducted one point for what I felt was a unnecessarily graphic torture scene while I understand s Simon like of detail and accuracy, I would have preferred a slightly tempered version In general, I think Simon has done well to improve on some of the shortcomings of the last book as he acknowledges in the afterword, it oscillated too much between different locations and story lines, and true to his word has tightened it up for Hades Gates, resulting in a much better flow throughout the entire novel.In fact, I think the entire premise for this book is muchinteresting than the previous one, and benefits from a better established enemy character in the British warchief Cassivellaunus Not only is he aformidable opponent to Caesar, but Turney also develops his characterthan he has done previously.I do however think thatcould have been made out of the entire Britain story line it feels like we only get glances into a much bigger picture On the other hand, as Simon points out himself, the next book covering the rise of Vercingetorix, should be very interesting already looking forward to this.In many ways, this book functions as a bridge between the first 4 books in the series and the next few and establishes some important groundwork eg Fronto returning to the legion

    The Marius Mules series is certainly one of my favourites and so the latest book to be released always has a lot to live up to This, the 5th book in the series, lives up to and perhaps exceeds expectations There is muchof the book set in Rome and Puteoli rather than in military settings in Gaul and Britania although there is plenty of that too and I liked the way this let a number of the characters to developthan a battlefield situation would allow Of course, also removing a The Marius Mules series is certainly one of my favourites and so the latest book to be released always has a lot to live up to This, the 5th book in the series, lives up to and perhaps exceeds expectations There is muchof the book set in Rome and Puteoli rather than in military settings in Gaul and Britania although there is plenty of that too and I liked the way this let a number of the characters to developthan a battlefield situation would allow Of course, also removing a few of the key characters from the army allowed those who were left to develop too, sometimes in unexpected ways view spoiler I was quite surprised at Priscus being raised to Legate, but it was also a great decision to make for the way the plot then developed hide spoiler There are some rather violent scenes as this can t be avoided when telling a tale about Roman legions in Gaul view spoiler but there is also the very gruesome torture scene involving Tulchulchur the Monster of Vispul which I still find rather haunting a few days after finishing the book I guess this was the idea as the author tried to convey the brutality that could be the late Roman Republic hide spoiler I can t wait for the next book in the series

    I don t know what it is about this series of books by Mr turney, but you just put them down,with all the action,humour and twists and turns in the plot.You really believe the characters to be real.The only thing that s wrong now is the long wait for the next in the series I bought this in the book version remember paper thing and it made me realise which I prefer and the ebook lost Thanks again Mr turney.

    This story is getting better and better Fronto finds himself in Rome again, but this time it is muchinteresting I think it was partly because I could easily identify with him, since I am still trying to get into better shape after Christmas Turney s work with details is marvelous as always, and the characters feel as if I really knew them for years I have to agree with other reviewers, this series is getting better and better.
