The Capsarius (Legion XXII Book 1) (English Edition) Formato Kindle
Warrior and combat medic, Titus Cervianus, must lead a legion and quell the uprisings in Egypt in a new Roman adventure from Simon Turney.
Titus Cervianus is no ordinary soldier. And the Twenty Second is no ordinary legion...
Egypt. 25 BC. A former surgeon from the city of Ancyra, Titus Cervianus is now a capsarius – a combat medic. He is a pragmatist, a scientist – and deeply unpopular with his legion, the Twenty Second Deiotariana.
The Twenty Second have been sent to deal with uprisings in Egypt. Founded as the private army of one of Rome's most devoted allies, their ways are not the same as the other legions', which sets them apart and causes friction with their fellow soldiers.
Marching into the unknown, Cervianus will find unexpected allies: a local cavalryman and a troublesome lunatic. Both will be of critical importance as the young medic marches through the searing sands of the south, finding forbidden temples, hidden assassins, and worst of all, the warrior queen of Kush...

It’s epic and it prepares the scene for the action and exciting things that will come.
Simon Turney can surely write historical fiction, and this was an excellent story that kept me hooked an turning pages. It wasn’t love at first pages, but the story grew on me as I got to know the different characters and travel with them
Titus Cervanius is a fascinating character, a man of his time and very modern at the same time. He’s well developed and interesting, I look forward to reading more about him.
The historical background is well researched and vivid, I learned something new and travelled with the characters in the ancient Egypt.
I can’t wait to read the next story as I want to know what will happen.
This one is strongly recommended.
Many thanks to Aries and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine

He’s also an outcast within the legion.. as a medic he puts some of his faith in knowledge and skill while many still hold the belief a man's life is in the hands of the Gods.
The twenty second legion have been given the task of tackling the Kushite’s in Egypt and to take back what is rightly theirs!
It’s not going to be an easy fight for sure but Cervianus has to hope his fellow soldiers don’t kill him first.. he doesn’t make friends easily.
Cervianus has luck on his side I feel and makes it to the battle but events along the way give him pause for thought.. maybe there is something to be said about the will of the Gods.
What Turney always does so well is the battles and the detail added to everything to set the scene, from the makeup of the army, the buildings, the heat.. the dints in a helmet.. nick in the armour.. everything.. it just puts you right there in the action.
For fans of the genre there’s plenty of action but what I’ve always admired about Turney’s work is how he manages to interweave personal fights too, it’s not just about the big battle… there’s lots to this tale to savour.. read it slowly, enjoy every morsel offered and I guarantee you’ll not be disappointed. It’s a talent to add knowledge and detail to an exciting plot like this one, some readers are simply in it for the action but Turney adds detail without forcing it, or slowing the pace.
I can honestly say I was hooked in from the prologue which set the tone of the story and has my mouth watering for more! Bring on book 2.
I also really enjoyed the character development throughout this one. It’s difficult at times to make characters real but Turney seems to do this effortlessly and I loved the relationship dynamic growing within the senior staff… oooo the tension!! You could cut it with a knife!
It's a 5/5 star rating from me!
In addition to the blood, sweat and tears …. Capsarius gives us an insight into 2000 years ago, where Rome and it’s knowledge ruled the known world.
Once again Simon Turney has created a fast paced novel with plot twists and believable characters .
He’s created a thoroughly entertaining and believable story, which I hope he continues to follow.
There must be more to come , …….. please !
Taking the perspective of a Roman medic the author offers another perspective of life in Romes legions.
Intra squad tensions. Inter legion rivalries, this novel brings the different personal conflicts that have probably existed for thousands of years to the fore, yet, when the battle starts the shock of war brings warriors together.
Can’t wait for the next one.
enemies .Therein lies my problem with this book. A medic isn't that interesting compared with a classic
legionaire. It takes almost three quarters of the book before the serious action starts. But then brothers
and sisters , you get the full Simon Turney treatment. That man knows how to write battle scenes. In all
honesty the book is well written and as you can expect from Mr Turney, well researched. This is not the last
in the series i presume, and despite my critical comments i will buy them all.
