Item Description...
Overview
Location: Roman Britain, Europe Time Period: Classical Antiquity (1000 B.C. - 500 A.D.) Roman Britain 400s A humorous fantasy tale set in ancient Britain. Iscium, an isolated Roman town in the west of Britain, is cut off from the collapsing Empire. Most of the town senators and officials are primarily concerned with keeping a low profile with the neighboring barbarians and renovating the city baths. But when young Falx runs away, and finds a lost barbarian girl, things begin to happen. The children are brought back by a one-eyed merchant who returns them to an Iscium quivering with the possibility of a barbarian invasion. The mysterious merchant has a plan-involving two talking ravens and The Hallelujah Chorus-and life is never quite the same again, for either the Romans or their invaders. A zany mix of history, humor, and the miraculous-in the satisfying tradition of Don Camillo.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
History and Fantasy and Great Characters  Mar 16, 2006
We read this book together as a family and enjoyed it very much. Ann Lawrence brings the citizens of the small Roman settlement in Britain to life in often amusing ways. The talking crows were a highlight. The ending was unexpected, but tied together many of the unusual happenings. We thouroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!
 
Fantasy in post-Roman Britain  Nov 9, 2003
This charming story is set in Isicum, a Romano-British city in the remote west of Britain, forgotten as the Romans depart Britain and the inhabitants of Iscium feel increasinlgy isolated, with Saxons appearing over the horizon. A Romano-British boy, Falx, find a litle lost Saxon girl, ulna, in the woods and brings her home to Iscium. The book is full of delightful characters, like Bishop Malleus, with a passion for beekeeping, and Teres, the mysterious one-eyed man with ravens on his shoulders, who keeps quoting from books that haven't been written yet. An entertaining and unusual historical fantasy. P.S. The Ann Lawrence who wrote this is not the same Ann Lawrence who writes the books with naked men on the covers, sorry.
