Roman Boy

By Tony Bradman

Third in the bestselling series of historical novels by award-winning Tony Bradman: the action-packed story of Roman boy Lucius, exiled to the most savage province of the Empire – Britannia.

"For thrilling real-life action-adventure, you won't get much better than Tony Bradman." Banished from Rome by his jealous stepfather, fourteen-year-old Lucius is exiled to Londinium. Plunged into mortal danger as he flees his stepfather's assassin, Lucius takes a false name and joins the brutal ranks of The Eagles, the Roman Legion in Britannia. Under the watchful eye of the god Jupiter, Lucius excels in battle and catches the attention of his superiors – but how can he fulfil his destiny when he can’t even claim his own name? As the shadows of war gather, Lucius’s secret past catches up with him. He must face not only the Celtic rebels but also his stepfather’s relentless vendetta – and the spectre of his own self-doubt. Packed with Curriculum-linked adventure content: gods, gladiators, the Roman legions and Emperor Hadrian himself.
