    May the Muses attend me , is what the story of a young Roman soldier begins with, that a Latin student uncovers after wrecking his ATV But after treachery, danger, and an Christian Celt, his story ends with him telling a story. of a Great King I did feel that the portrayal of the Latin teacher in the beginning of the book was. overdone, to try to be humerus But it was a good Christian book, and I m glad I read it

    One of my favorite Bond books A fairly well written story set in Roman Britton a definite plus , and there s very little let s make the ancient Christians act and think like modern Protestants going on While I had a few theological problems with it they were very tiny and did not detract from the story in the slightest.

    Definitely a great book to read and to keep on the shelves I ve lost it, however I remember when we first got it, reading it with my mother For a long time I listed it as my very favorite book, and it s still up there somewhere.

    Fifteen year old Neil Perkins lived a reasonably good life He lived on Hostage Heath, a farm near Hadrian s Wall in northern England, and his parents let him go where he please on his four wheeler, as long as he accomplished his chores Yes, he had a good life, except for his Latin classes with the ridiculous Miss Klitsa Perhaps she would have been better off teaching a drama class.After wrecking his four wheeler near the Wall, Neil finds a spearhead and packet of tablets in the hole he made in landing The tablets were all written upon, and in Latin, no less He took them to Miss Klitsa and asked what they said, but she was too much of a teacher to tell him.All of this merely serves as the introduction to the tale which Neil laboriously translated The epic tale of Celts and Romans scheming, spying, fighting and dying around Hadrian s Wall is reminiscent of the tales spun by Rosemary Sutcliff We follow the centurion Rusticus, who must decide where his loyalties lay The story is well told, and readers will hold their breath, instead of easily guessing the way everything will resolve itself To make this drama even better than Sutcliff s, one of these characters, Calum, is a Christian, although he does not proclaim it to everyone he meets When the Celts sit around the fire at night, and call on him for a story, he tells them, My tale is of a great King, and gives the whole gospel Calum s service to the Prince of Peace does not however, make him any less valiant a soldier.The book concludes with Rusticas telling a story of a great King Neil wonders if the whole story is true, and asks questions Will Neil, will the reader believe the story What about the tale of a great King I have always loved Sutcliff s books, but Hostage Lands ranks even higher on my list I wish I could give it stars, and highly recommend it to those 13 and up Travel back to the misty, dangerous Britain of the Celts, when Romans built their wall, and flaunted their standards You will learn to think like a Celt, and step quietly behind a tree when you hear footsteps And maybe you finish this book, and read it again, and give it a place with your favorite Celtic books.

    While I don t care for the way Bond framed two of his other books, his use of that literary device in this book is spot on Neil and his Latin teacher drew me in at once with their contentious relationship, and I loved the tying together of Hadrian s wall today and two thousand years ago The past and the present are woven together, the truth of the one reflecting on the truth of the other.I appreciate Rusticus as the stoic Roman soldier, willing to challenge everything he s known Then there s Calum, a Celt living under Roman rule, who is strangely peaceful and confident in the face of great odds Can the gods bring Rusticus through the enemies that surround him Who is the Christ Calum speaks of Good stuff I love the history, I love the Latin, and I love the characters.

    This is a fun, unique book on the little known warfare along Hadrian s wall The main character has to be one of the best in this class of books that I have come across in quite some time He is a unique, realistic, humorous, flawed, character that the author was not afraid to state actually shook in his boots at points when I would bet most of us would either be petrified with terror or else running the other direction.

  9. says:

    This is a beautiful story of a young Roman soldier who is sent to find out about the Celtic rebels He is befriended by a young Celtic man.A girl is held hostage by the Romans, and the men risk their life to save her Because of their courage and loyalty, the two nations finally are able to be at peace with each other.This book was written for younger 12 reading levels, but it isn t a simple childish story It was an excellent story, it is well worth reading no matter your age.

  10. says:

    A story within a story We begin with Neal and his rather abnormal Latin teacher, but move on to the Latin tale that Neal has to translate narrated by the centurion Rusticus aobut himself, his Celt friend Calum, and their various friends, relations, and enemies in Roman Britain in the second century AD I enjoyed this than Bond s Crown and Covenant series The plot was solid and the storyline writing very well done.
