Atticus of Rome 30 B.C. (Life and Times)by Barry Denenberg
Synopses & Reviews
In this departure from our first person diaries, we leap into ancient times in a third person novel filled with action, adventure, and glory — all the drama of life in ancient Rome.
Acclaimed author Barry Denenberg brings to life the intrigue of Roman politics and the bloody violence of the gladiator games in this story about ancient Rome.
Atticus, a young boy who has been torn from his family and home and sold as a slave to a Roman aristocrat, quickly learns that not all is as it seems in the republic of Rome. Politicians and greedy merchants plot against each other, and Atticus must do his best to protect his kindly master...and, in turn, the Emperor of Rome. Murder and lies fill his new life as a spy for Lucius Opimius.
This first title in a brand-new line of historical fiction brings to life the intrigue of Roman politics and the bloody violence of the gladiator games in this story about ancient Rome and a young boy who is a slave to an aristocrat.
