Ariella ,age sixteen, tries to return home after a futile attempt to find food. The place and date are Jerusalem, August 9, AD70.  Men, women, and children are in a panic as they try to leave the city. The city had been under siege for months but today something even worse was about to happen. When Ariella arrived home, she discovered her mother was gone to the Temple. She immediately set out to help bring her home safely. But when she got there the Temple was on fire. She tried to return home but she found her street had burned to the ground, also.  She was told only her brother, Micah, had survived. Would she be able to find him?

Ariella escapes the fall of Jerusalem only to be sold into slavery.  She even disguised herself as a boy. and is sold into a gladiator troupe.

I would like to thank B& H Publishers for giving me a complimentary copy of this book to read and review.  This book was not one that I enjoyed. I think it was well researched but it was too hard for me to follow.
