Gladiator:Fight for Freedom By Simon Scarrow
Gladiator is a book about a 11 year old kid named Marcus Cornelius Primus life changes when his dad is murdered and his mother kidnapped and enslaved. Marcus is sold to a gladiator school and must learn how to learn and survive in the arena. It takes place during the Roman Empire and is between 30 B.C. to 476 A.D. . One of the most interesting parts to me was when someone tells Marcus that he is the son of Spartacus and that the hope of rebellion lives inside of him. Marcus Cornelius Primus is 11 years old, has dark brown eyes, and has brown hair. I think this book is good for boys who are my age(13-14) and are seeking historical fiction, adventure, and action.
