When a modern-day English school boy happens upon an ancient Latin text, readers of Hostage Lands are transported back to third century Britain and into a tale of intrigue and adventure along the northern frontier of the Roman Empire.
“Douglas Bond has done it again." R.C. Sproul Jr.
"In this fast-paced story, Douglas Bond brings ancient history to life. The plot is complex. The characters—both the winsome and the despicable—are multidimensional and thoroughly believable. Along with Roman Centurion Rusticus and his Celt friend, Calum, readers will grapple with questions of loyalty, honor, duty, and truth. Hostage Lands is an entertaining, instructive, thought provoking, and ultimately satisfying historical adventure." Katy Johnson, curriculum development, TacomaPublic Schools
