A fast-paced, action-filled and good-old-boys-humor riddled novel, that nonetheless brings us intimately close to the inner workings of the then all-conquering Roman legions and to the military and political shinnanigans of their mastermind, Julius Caesar The lead character, the hands-on, seasoned and astute though rebellious legate Fronto is a brilliant narrative choice as he leads us through the daily grind of the life of legionaries, optios and centurions up to the more elevated but no less dangerous strategic and political stakes that shapes the destinies of the upper-class tribunes, legates and generals. Add to the mix the always endearing encounter with larger-than-life historical figures such as Crassus, Ariovistus, and of course Caesar, and you have a first class, though amazingly underrated, novel of the historical genre, in the Simon Scarrow, Anthony Riches or Harry Sidebottom class, and superior the ill-conceived Conn Iggulden foray in the same historical period. A must-read for the Gladius period lovers.

An excellent start to a series, believable characters, humorous asides and an interesting historical context. I moved very quickly onto the next book.
