Eksi hänen aloittaessaan huipputaistelijaksi tähtäävän koulutuksen gladiaattorikoulussa Marcus ei voi unohtaa menneisyyttään hänen isänsä on murhattu ja äitinsä siepattu ja myyty orjaksi Marcus janoaa kostoa ja on päättänyt etsiä käsiinsä isänsä entisen komentajan Pompeius Suuren pyytääkseen apua ja pelastaakseen äitin Marcus Cornelius Primus is the son of a Roman Centurian With the first ten years of his life spent on his family s farm in Greece Marcus life is suddenly turned upside down when his father is killed and he and his mother are taken as slaves Marcus is then sold to a Gladiator trainer where he learns to fight whilst all the time contemplating his escape and how he can find and free his mother He sets his sights on somehow making it to Rome to find General Pompeius who s life his father once saved in the hope he will help that is until Marcus finds out that his past is not what he always thought it to beThis is a fast paced exciting adventure story that I imagine is primarily aimed at ten to fourteen year old boys but at the same time is a great read for all Scarrow s writing superbly describes the scenes and the period in which the book is set and you really get a sense of what it was like to be a slave in the Roman era It is clearly well researched The fight scenes don t hold back on their realism but are still appropriate for the target age of the bookI liked that Marcus acted his age He would sometimes not make the best decisions acting in tune to his feelings than what might be best long term He also had that determination and optimism that only a ten year old can have He doesn t really consider that Rome is a heck of a long way or the dangers that might stand in his way He s courageous yet vulnerable and in general a well balanced well written characterThere were some aspects of the plot that were a little predictable but again it is a children syoung teen book so that s usually the case when reading as an adult Still while it might have been obvious what the outcome was going to be how the story got there wasn t always as predictable And in any case these elements were things that you wanted to happen so it was all goodI ll definitely be looking out for the second book in this series and will likely also check out some of the authors other books
