This has been the hardest hitting of the series so far. I'm still reeling Feb 14, Dee Paisley rated it really liked it Shelves: ancients. What a dear story of what really matters in friendship. This story is set in ancient Rome and simply tells a sad story of historical events aside endearing story of enduring friendship.

Oct 30, Paula rated it did not like it. A textbook on gladiators disguised as fiction. It would be a good read for those who like the subject. I thought it wasn't a very good story. Aug 27, Christy Israel rated it it was amazing. I liked Flavia and the island scene where Nubia helps her. That's most interesting among all. Love this book. Mar 14, Vicky Fang rated it it was amazing. It was a good book per use but the fact that I changed it to 5 stars was because of Caudex, who I had completely forgotten about and then fell in love with. Love you hun you're such a softie I can't deal with it.
