Here's a book jacket description of Book One in my IRON AND THE STONE series. I'd love to hear your honest opinions, if you have any. :-)
Slave boy fights for his freedom. Slave-owner's granddaughter fights for her life. Together, they fight for each other.
Rome 76 AD
After watching Roman soldiers drag his parents away to their death, David, a young Hebrew, is sold and enslaved to serve at a villa outside of Rome. David trains to become a great fighter. He works hard to please his master and hopes to earn his freedom. However, an opportunity to escape tempts David with its whispering call. Freedom beckons, but invisible chains hold him captive to the master's granddaughter, an innocent girl with a fiery spirit. David vows to protect Alethea from his master, the murderous patriarch, and must contrive a daring plan—sacrifice his own life to save hers.
