Julius Caesar has taken his legions north into mighty battles with the Gallic tribes. But as his successes mount, overwhelming ambition and new alliances begin to threaten his friendship with Marcus Brutus, brother-in-arms and fellow warrior. Although the conquest of Gaul has made Caesar a hero all over again, his victories on the battlefield cause still more rivalries at home. And ultimately Caesar and Brutus will have to choose whether to cross the Rubicon - together or singly - and to take the fight to Rome itself. Download and start listening now!

    " I'm really struggling to get through this series. I've made it this far so I'll read the last book-maybe in a couple of months. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 2/14/2014

    " Another good round from Iggulden. I generally enjoyed this one although at times I felt like it could be a 3.5 star read. Overall though, a good read so will give another 4 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Yoak | 2/11/2014

    " This one was a bit of a slow start, but ultimately shows us Julius in all of his glory. By the end I was really pulling for him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqui | 2/2/2014

    " Notice how quickly I read... I literally could not put these books down. Conn Iggulden is truly a masterful storyteller, making history come alive through his fiction! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M Scott | 1/28/2014

    " Book three keeps getting better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 1/27/2014

    " This series gets inside of you! Well for me it does, it feels like you know all of the characters and as other Roman fiction authors, Conn has evoked a great sense of the times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Padre | 1/15/2014

    " What can I say? Julius is such a great character, I'll be pissed if Iggulden kills him in the last book ;) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lois | 12/24/2013

    " Not my sort of book but the historical detail was interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Timothy Kestrel | 11/23/2013

    " The Field of Swords is entertaining and rigorously researched, epic tale of one man's quest for fame and glory. I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in the times and tribulations of imperial Rome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pauline | 10/21/2013

    " 3rd in the series and I have enjoyed them all.Well worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allen | 10/16/2013

    " Great story. Didn't like the narrator of the audio version. The lack continuity in the pronunciations of character's names was distracting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phil | 10/10/2013

    " The third book in Iggulden's Julius Ceasar narrative. This one advances the story through the Gallic Wars and ends on the verge of ceasar's invasion of Italy. Again, history and timeframe are warped to Iggulden's purposes, those purposes being a readable pulp-fiction story. And he achieves his goal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrina | 9/20/2013

    " The first & third book were hard for me to get through but I would read the series again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 8/5/2013

    " Well written and an attempt is made at staying historically correct while still entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Per | 7/25/2013

    " Bra, men i tredje boken lite repetitivt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Forrest | 5/23/2013

    " Please see my review for the first book of the series: "The Gates of Rome" by the author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chad Kerchner | 3/14/2013

    " Excellent character and plot development. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Dunn | 8/12/2012

    " Part Three to this series, and it just keeps getting better. History made very fun, albeit with some facts changed here or there and stories told that may or may not have been true....but a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 4/11/2012

    " Although I still love this series, I have to admit book 3 was a bit slow and tedious. However, definately looking forward to closing out the series with Book 4. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oda | 2/9/2012

    " These just keep getting better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyle West | 1/7/2012

    " As fascinating and interesting as the first two of the series. I look forward to #4. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Winnie | 12/16/2011

    " Another winner from this author - literally could not put this down it went everywhere with me - on the bus, in the queue at the supermarket - a spare second and I was reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 8/8/2011

    " This was the best book in the series so far. I was totally lost in it from the start, and the development of Julius' character just seemed so real. A really good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 7/29/2011

    " This is the 3rd book in the 4 book series about Julius Cesaer & Brutus by this author. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first 2. Maybe because this one dealt mostly with Cesaer's attempts to conquer Gaul & Britain. I think the concluding book will be better and will end the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Per | 6/20/2011

    " Bra, men i tredje boken lite repetitivt. "
