    This was a good sequel to The Ides of April. I agree that as a read aloud the way it was written seemed a bit formal so it was a bit cumbersome to get through. But my children (ages between 14-10) and myself all enjoyed the book. We couldn't figure out what the main conflict was. It was more of a coming of age story, where the three teenage brothers and Hylas were trying to figure out what their lives mean and where their paths were meant to go. The Ides of April, as a mystery, was a much more enjoyable read, but as sequels go, we liked it. It definitely did what I read it for: a book where we learn history through story. Great historical aspects about the fall of Jerusalem, how the Greeks lived in the Roman Empire, and the Romans army, and how they fight.

    If you have read The Ides of April or are studying early Roman history, you will want to read this book. It tells a good deal about life in that time through a Greek family very near Jerusalem.
