March, AD 80. In Rome, the Emperor Titus has announced that there will be 100 days of games to open the new Flavian amphitheatre (now known as the Colosseum).

Suspecting that their friend Jonathan is not dead, as they had thought, Flavia, Nubia, and Lupus organize an invitation to Rome on the pretense of witnessing this historic event.

Their search for Jonathan leads them straight to the games, where they must face wild beasts, criminals, conspirators, and gladiators. It's Nubia's turn to employ all of her courage and talents, and before the end of the story she is called upon to make the most terrible choice. Download and start listening now!

    " Great plot.I love all the action! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phair | 8/12/2013

    " Not much mystery to this one but lots of action both physical (some gory) and psychological. The bad guys have some good points and the good guys have moments of bad actions. Wouldn't rate this as one of the best but still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey Foo | 9/13/2012

    " This is a book with many vivid descriptions of life many decades ago. Quite violent, in other words, very blood filled, however, the plot is reasonable. Bit hard to understand if you hadn't read the first few series as it continues on from pervious book. "
