Flavia Gemina and her friends Jonathan, Nubia, and Lupus are determined to find out more and start to investigate a powerful and charismatic man known as the Patron.

    " At a makeshift camp near the erupted Vesuvius, children are disappearing. Falvia, Nubid, Johnathan & Lupus try to solve the mystery, but get caught up in it Good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs. Roy | 7/29/2013

    " I really LOVE these books and this author - her style is a bit more sophistocated than the Percy Jackson author. But what I like best is how she emerses the reader in the Roman everday world. I wish I could read all of these books to my Latin students in class, but eheu, no time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Magda | 7/28/2013

    " More exciting than the other two books. Usually the books in a series go down in enjoyability ... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 4/21/2013

    " read these awihle ago they were good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen Gurri | 3/19/2013

    " Great series to read with Colin and Kate is getting into it as well. Lawrence does not gloss the social issues of Ancient Rome and her ensemble cast of young detectives provide a range of viewpoints. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 9/19/2012

    " Third in a series of mysteries set in Ancient Rome, I like them a lot. If you want to read these you should start with the first one (The Thieves of Ostia). "

    " Rich with relationships, history, and action making a great literary choice for young readers. or listeners as my grandson and I listened to this on a recent road trip. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B | 5/25/2012

    " Third of the Roman mysteries. Liked the variety of characters, the exciting story line of kids being snatched for slavery right after the confusion of Vesuvius erupting, and good description of ancient roman life. If we had enough copies in our library I would consider it for Book Buddies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JaNel | 5/13/2012

    " This was much better than the 2nd in the series. It's much more positive and not so depressing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 12/11/2011

    " Good handling of the topic of slavery, horrible enough for middle-grade kids to understand, but not be overwhelmed by. These books continue to be high-adventure, & it seems like we're going to hear more about the past of each individual character, which should be interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maia | 10/8/2011

    " Fun but a tiny bit frightening "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Bang | 8/18/2011
