really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult-historical-fiction
Read in January, 2004

I'm still amazed how gritty these tales are. No whitewashing the violence & corruption of Roman life for the kiddies. Great adventure, lots of personal development for our characters and I learned as much if not more about the building of the Colosseum than I ever did in classes on Ancient History. Love this series.
