Two tiger cub brothers are torn from the jungle and taken to Rome. The stronger cub is trained as a killer at the Coliseum. Emperor Caesar makes a gift of the smaller cub to his beautiful daughter, Aurelia. She adores her cub, Boots. Julius, a young animal keeper, teaches Aurelia how to earn Boots’ trust. Boots is pampered while his brother, known as Brute, lives in the cold and darkness, let out only to kill. Caesar trusts Julius to watch Aurelia and her prized pet. But when a prank backfires, Boots temporarily escapes and Julius must pay with his life. Thousands watch as Julius is sent unarmed into the arena to face the killer Brute.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Linda Hart | 2/16/2014

    " I really enjoyed the historical setting of ancient Rome and almost gave it 5 stars. Although written for youth, the author did not sugar-coat the brutality of the "circus," which ordinarily would be a turn off for me, but was not. It created a necessary reality in the telling of this compelling short novel. "

    " this fantastic historical fiction story takes place in Rome. Two tiger cub was cature at a young age and sent to Rome, where they both would live seperate lives. One Cub was given to emperor's daugther as a special gift, asnd the other was taught to be a vicious fighter. As the book goes on it tells the story of how each character grows and the reuniting of the tigers. This book also focuses on the poltical views of Roman and it's history. I did think this book was a great book but to advanced for grades p-5. "

    " The cover is amazing. The book is very good. It really brings the intense passions of tigers, Emperors, Emperors' daughters, and other 3rd century Romans to life. The educational value and the moral lessons are tucked in so discreetly in this exciting romantic adventure that boys and girls will both love it. It would make a great read-aloud for an upper-elementary teacher. (Be forewarned though as there is some brutality and gore.) "

    " Wow, what a great book. It is an historically accurate fictional story of two tiger brothers separated in Rome. It does a great job of bringing Rome and the Colosseum to life and adding in an amazing story. I strongly recommend this book. "
