    This is a fascinating piece of detailed historical fiction created by an archaeological expert on ancient Rome The story is a mystery solved by a group of kids, but the detailed backgrounds and social setting make it farthan a Scooby Doo in Ancient Rome sort of mystery The first couple of chapters are confusing, but once you get the huge cast of characters sorted out in your mind and resolve to look up Latin words in the glossary provided, it becomes a very well written story I liked it This is a fascinating piece of ...

    Better story of how the culture of Roman life includes the chariot races and not so much adult material that would mess with the young readers There are serious conflicts though and this is a good story about these characters
