Comments Conspiracy of Eagles

  • Jane

    This one certainly went quickly! I read this in a matter of hours and recommend it highly. I couldn't put this continuation of the Fronto saga down. It was exhilarating nonstop action. I'd tell myself "Just a few pp. more", but it was difficult to pull myself away; I had to find out what happened! We follow Fronto in Gaul with Caesar, still fighting: aggressive Germans from the other side of the Rhine this time, then Fronto is a part of Caesar's Britain expedition. He rushes to Rome to counterac [...]

    Undoubtedly the best, so far, of a wonderful series.

    I like to tell people that I discovered S.J.A. Turney, author of the Marius’ Mules series. After all, no one recommended him to me, although that surely would have happened eventually, no one handed me one of his books and insisted I had to read it. No, the plain truth is I did discover him while patrolling for new reading material a couple of years ago and have since read the first four books of the series. This review, while mostly about the fourth installment from his series on the Gaul ca [...]

    This whole series is a great project and this book is not different. The story here is quite tight, only I had a feeling that the author did not care as much about the accuracy of the content as in the previous books. One of the indicators is the occasional use of anachronistic language. I am usually not very sensitive to it, but a phrase "bury the hatchet" was like a punch in the face. Nevertheless, I still cannot give less than 4 stars.


  • Matt

    Excellent series I only hope there is more to come


  • Kevin Gardner

    this is another cracking read from Mr turney.


  • Jan

    Having read the first three books in the Marius' Mules series about a year ago, as well as S.J.A. Turney'sTales of the Empire series, I was really looking forward to reading the fourth book about Fronto - the somewhat angry but likeable legate in Caeasar's army.Unfortunately, while I still enjoyed the book, it felt like rather disjointed to me, more like a collection of many small stories (neither of which make a book), and I never quite got into it as much as the previous ones.The book picks up [...]

    Sin duda la idea de ver envejecer a los héroes y personajes en las series de libros constituye un atractivo adicional en un libro, siempre que te interese el personaje. El legatus Fronto es sin duda uno de mis favoritos y este libro viene y concluye muchas líneas pendientes que quedaron de la trilogía previa. Algunas sin duda me gustaron, nuevos caracteres y una forma de pensar más cínica y desencantada del mundo, menos blanco y negro. Otras simplemente las odie, muertes de protagonistas qu [...]


  • Lisa

    I really like these books. As a Roman-o-phile, anything of the genre catches my attention, but these books hold it. Even though the battle scenes can be protracted, I never lose interest. I also really appreciate that there is no "love story" that is the basic premise of the story. I really hate books that think they have to have that vehicle to draw interest. Anyway, it's fun to read these and I am now sad because I am finished with the series as written so far. I hope the author hurries up and [...]


  • Guy

    I am enjoying Fronto's further adventures, but. When it comes to military I love it, but when it comes to the politics in Rome there really is no one like Colleen McCullough and the Masters of Rome series.Ploughing on and things have definately picked up. Fronto's back in the thick of where he performs best! Really enjoying it.


  • Roger Neilson

    Another chapter in the hero's life, another set of problems to deal with. Nice mix of settings here and Caesar is becoming a more and more complex master. As always I do smile a bit at the number of wounds they all receive and how quickly they recover from them or are able to continue in battle when their adversaries succumb on the first blow - but hey - it's fun.


  • V. William Turkus

    Marcus remains alive!Intriguing and interesting as our hero is damaged but lives to fight another day. Twists and turns every few pages, mystery is the driving force as cunning and intrigue are more important than actual battle.


  • Nicky

    **2/2.5** Overall series deserves the higher rating. As with the first 3 books I loved the military aspect and the male characters. What put me off were the female characters. A bit coquettish & emasculating.


  • Roger

    The best and most human of this excellent series.


  • Brian

    This series gets better and better.


  • Margareth8537

    Fronto does not really change, other than getting older and stiffer. This book sees him joining Caesar as he moves against Gaul and then Britain.


  • Mark Eichelman

    While I have enjoyed all of the Mules books, I find Fronto's continued drunkenness and insubordination, as well as his ability to rebound from one wound after another, to be a bit much.


  • Vlad

    Books 4,5 are less about military campaign in Gaul and more about Fronto in Rome. This is full disclosed by the author upfront though. So does not come as a bad surprise
