Fight for Freedom (Gladiator #1) – Simon Scarrow

fight-for-freedomCapturing life in Ancient Rome again, Scarrow has developed another highly engaging and historically accurate drama – this time for teens. Marcus Cornelius Primus is sold into slavery with his mother Livia, when his gladiator father is killed in the wars with Sparta. Only ten years old when the novel begins, we see the challenges Marcus faces in becoming a gladiator himself and, importantly, his inability to forget his past. Determined to seek justice and to find his mother again, Marcus sets out to find Pompeius the Great, his father’s old general – but a dangerous secret threatens to destroy him.
