All I have to say about this is that three of the four became preachy Christians. Also, the whole book seemed to be for nothing once again. Christians, Christians everywhere. And once again Johnathan runs away again because the first few times it wasn't enough. However, I did enjoy getting back on with the freeborn children as slaves plot, it helped me to get through the book. Apr 30, Mara rated it it was ok Shelves: books-to-buy , historical-fiction , mystery , 2-stars. Cover Blurb: Like with all of the Roman Mysteries book covers, I like the simplicity and color scheme, as well as how it looks like a painting.
This particular cover out of the series is one of the less interesting ones. What I Liked: As always, I like Nubia; she continues to be the most level-headed, best tempered, and most considerate of the four friends. While c Cover Blurb: Like with all of the Roman Mysteries book covers, I like the simplicity and color scheme, as well as how it looks like a painting. She seems her age - twelve - and therefore it is really hard to find anything romantic about her crush on Flaccus.
And she is definitely not mature for her age! And not at all romantic. Believability: Caroline Lawrence does her historical research; that has always been true. All of the research is there, the plausibility. I was afraid that the Author would have her convert, and I was never convinced that Flavia would ever give up her Roman faith. But her writing is very moment-by-moment, and she overworks the cliffhanger - every single chapter literally ends in one. Content: This one had no content of which to speak.
Conclusion: This is where the story fell down. The Author did a terrific job in connecting the loose ends of The Colossus of Rhodes to this one. She had a good setup and an intriguing villain that we fans have been wonderful about ever since The Colossus of Rhodes was first released. But then suddenly everything comes crashing down around our heads.

I hate, simply hate it when an Author has a good villain, and then that villain repents, turns all good, and everyone goes home happy. It destroys everything in the story; turns it sour; leaves the Reader utterly unsatisfied. This is both a girl and guy read.
Feb 27, Emma Wallace rated it it was amazing Shelves: middle-grade. What an intense whirlwind of a book- this initially started off with a lot of oblique grief and embitterment and there was definitely a lot of timely existentialism in some of the POVs- needless to say the Flaccus situation was just an obstacle that my nerves didn't need in this stage of the game although I am greatly anticipating the climax that is being built up. I loved what I perceive to be the pinnacle in the character's personality growth in learning to adapt to adversity and found Wow!!!!
I loved what I perceive to be the pinnacle in the character's personality growth in learning to adapt to adversity and found the resolution that the gang, bar Flavia, all became a massive Christian Union society entertaining- although I think the introduction of St John was really beautifully done and tempered with emotional poignancy- evidently all I hope for now is some progression in the Gemina family fortunes.

After their adventures on the Nile, the young detectives are hiding out in Alexandria because they're wanted by the Emperor - why, they don't know. Fortunately, their tutor Aristo finds them, and tells them there have been more kidnappings of freeborn children, including Flavia's baby cousin Popo.
Flavia's father and Flaccus have gone to Halicarnassus to find the children. They all sneak out of Egypt and get to Halicarnassus right after the kidnappers have fled, leaving the children behind. Whil After their adventures on the Nile, the young detectives are hiding out in Alexandria because they're wanted by the Emperor - why, they don't know.

Lupus hopes he can restore his tongue so he can talk again. Needless to say, a whole lot more happens before the end of the book.
This is the penultimate book of the series, and I'm expecting many plot threads to be wound up in the final one. Nov 17, Sandi rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens , historical-fiction , mystery , roman. Interesting look at the start of the spread of Christianity.
Characterisation becoming more complex as the children mature. Mar 21, Dee Paisley rated it really liked it Shelves: ancients.
