Book Description

6 Mar 2014 Gladiator

FREE from slavery, Marcus is determined to find and save his kidnapped mother.

Meanwhile, his master Julius Caesar wants Marcus to help destroy the bands of rebel slaves and their leader Brixus, who plans to unite a slave army and resurrect the cause of Spartacus.

But Marcus and Brixus are old allies who share a life-threatening secret. Marcus is torn between his friend and master. Can he convince Brixus now is not the time for a deadly revolt - and ask Caesar to negotiate a slave surrender before more carnage and bloodshed?

** From the #1 bestselling adult author Simon Scarrow - over 1 million copies sold.

** The perfect introduction to Roman history and gladiators for young readers - great for fans of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter.

** Book 3 in the series.

About the Author

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware this series is written for children 14 Aug 2013
By Bob
I have read and enjoyed all Simon Scarrow's books and innocently bought the 1st in the Gladiator series, "Gladiator fight for freedom" it was soon apparent this was written for 10 year olds . I shall be more careful when buying Simon Scarrow in future!

A much awaited third book in the series. Lots of action and gore, so I wouldn't recommend it for pre-teens.
