**Revised 2012 Edition**

Betrayal and Devastation

In the year 28 A.D. the people of Frisia, a previously loyal province, were suffering under the oppression of the Roman magistrate, a former Centurion named Olennius. So blinded by greed had he become, that he taxed the populous well beyond their means to produce. Now impoverished and risking starvation, the Frisians did the unspeakable and sought open rebellion as their only means of survival.

The Emperor Tiberius, now living in self-imposed isolation on the isle of Capri, is deeply troubled upon hearing that such a staunchly loyal province would seek to throw off the rule of Rome. Nevertheless, he orders the mobilization of the Army of the Rhine to suppress the Frisians back into docile submission, never knowing the real reason as to the origin of the rebellion.

As the Twentieth Legion marches north into Frisia on its first major campaign in eight years, Centurion Artorius finds himself facing his first major battle since taking over his Century. Years of relative peace, combined with the mass discharges of many of his veteran soldiers, have left the ranks filled with a number of young and inexperienced legionaries. For over a third of his men this will be their first action. The Frisians, in their desperation, know that they face death either by starvation in peace or slaughter on the battlefield. For Artorius and his legionaries the crucible of war will end in heartbreak; for only after the devastation of battle does the truth arise.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Excellent military history novel set in early Imperial Rome 8 de octubre de 2012
Por Roger J. Buffington - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Soldier of Rome: Centurion is the fourth novel in the author's Soldier of Rome series, and it is one of the strongest novels in the series. Here, our protagonist is now Centurion Artorius, stationed on the marches of Imperial Rome's frontiers in Germania. In this novel a tragic pattern emerges that was the bane of the Roman Empire in many places and times. A corrupt Roman imperial representative seeks to plunder and abuse the province to which he is assigned. He believes the people helpless to resist since the might and power of the Roman Legions are what really back his, and Rome's, power in the region. Rebellion is the eventual result. This makes for an excellent story, made tragic by the fact that justice is quite on the side of the rebels making it hard to root for the Romans, including Artorius and his soldiers.

This is an excellent novel which, like the others in the series, gives the reader a notion as to what life was like as a Roman Legionary. The main protagonist, Centurion Artorius, is a well-developed character whom the reader grows to like, and these novels hold the reader's interest throughout. The next novel in the series, Soldier of Rome: Judea, is expected soon and fans of this series, myself included, eagerly await its release. RJB.
3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Good but there are better books out there 4 de julio de 2015

This book changes characters far to frequently for my tastes. It is constantly going back and forth from one character in sometimes less than 10 pages which is a little frustrating. The plot of the book is good, i.e a little predictable but none the less an interesting read. I picked up on the serious to read about the legions, not about the power struggles in rome . This is nice for a reader who does not know all of the background information of the political scene in Rome during this time period, but I thought it took away from a good story within the legions. However there are better novels about the roman legions out there such as marching with ceaser.
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Enjoyed the series; hated the editing 3 de julio de 2013

I've read the first four of Mace's series and look forward to more. It is paced well, although I admit I liked the first two better than the last two. Still, he gives a good balance of the usual "Roman legion fare" (battles, drills, "RAH!" yells, etc.) but brings in some good character development, albeit secondary to the former it seems. An enjoyable read for those who like Roman historical fiction.

BUT, the editing is very poor. In Book 3, for example, phrases were repeated verbatim, in one case right after one another, and in all four books it looks like someone forgot to check their spell-checking: The plural of Optio is not Options! It is just enough to derail the smooth flow of the narrative. This isn't unique to these books; it seems a problem with most Kindle books that I buy, but in this series the errors and repetitions jump out at you as they are more consistent and frequent.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Kudos to Mace!!! 17 de marzo de 2012
Por Kenneth C. Cable - Publicado en

Looks like Mace has finally worked his fourth story in the series into a top-notch piece of historical fiction. His story provides an account of Roman history untouched by earlier writers. His action scenes (as noted in other reviews) are most graphic and realistic sounding. The early pace of the novel seems somewhat slow but once things get moving Mr. Mace grabs your attention and drags you though all the blood and gore you can imagine. Don't know if the Roman soldiers of this time were as troubled as are his lead charcters with the brutality involved. As Mace would have it, they were as troubled as today's soldiers may be.

A very good read. The next book, in Judea, should be very, very interesting.

Kindle editing seems much improved with this book!!!!!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A great 6 book series. 14 de junio de 2014
Por Otto B. - Publicado en

I enjoyed all six books in this series very much. The characters were very real. The battle scenes were very graphic. There were occasional errors in word choice that editing should have caught, like 'there' instead of "their' and "know" instead of "no". A suggestion for improving this already great series: Include a few maps or when a city is referred to, also give its modern name. Sure hope Mr. Mace writes some more books along the line of "Soldier of Rome".
