Nic, the spoiled son of a wealthy Athenian family, is on the run: from the plague in Athens, from savage pirates, and from a life of slavery. If only he can reach Olympia in time for the Games and find his friend Gellius, he’ll be safe. Or will he? At Olympia, the last and most terrible of his enemies is waiting.Greece in 430 BC comes alive in this action-packed, Olympic adventure story for 10-14 year olds. Within this historical setting, readers will learn the fascinating details of the Pankration.
The Pankration, the supreme event of the original Olympic games, was a bare-fisted, no-holds-barred combat sport. It is this very competition that Nic’s friend, Gellius, hopes to survive. And it is, at the end, the Pankration that forces Nic to choose between the truth and a horrible fear. This page-turner is guaranteed to satisfy even the most reluctant of readers.
