Author: Vicky Alvear Shecter
Release Date: May 27, 2014
When your world blows apart, what will you hold onto?
TAG is a medical slave, doomed to spend his life healing his master’s injured gladiators. But his warrior’s heart yearns to fight in the gladiator ring himself and earn enough money to win his freedom.
LUCIA is the daughter of Tag’s owner, doomed by her father’s greed to marry a much older Roman man. But she loves studying the natural world around her home in Pompeii, and lately she’s been noticing some odd occurrences in the landscape: small lakes disappearing; a sulfurous smell in the air…
When the two childhood friends reconnect, each with their own longings, they fall passionately in love. But as they plot their escape from the city, a patrician fighter reveals his own plans for them– to Lucia’s father, who imprisons Tag as punishment. Then an earthquake shakes Pompeii, in the first sign of chaos to come. Will they be able to find each other again before the volcano destroys their whole world?
I’m excited about this, simply because I’ve become obsessed with Historical Fiction, and I love stories of Pompeii. I can’t wait to see how the author makes her story come to life. I can’t help but picture Kit Harington now, every time I think about anything regarding Pompeii. He was absolutely perfect in the most recent adaptation of Pompeii the movie. I swooned so much throughout the whole movie, that my fiance’ got mad. Anyways, I can’t wait to read this book!! What book are you waiting on this week?
