Neil Perkins, a Latin student at Haltwhistle Grammar School in England, unearths an ancient Roman manuscript. He dedicates himself to study Latin and so uncovers a story of treachery and betrayal from the third century. Disaffected centurion, Rusticus, serves Rome at Hadrian's Wall, an unruly frontier. A Celt named Calum, who was deeply changed when he saw Christians martyred in the Roman Coliseum, saves Perkins from a massacre. Not only will you learn the differences between ancient paganism and the primal Christian faith practiced in third-century Britain, but you will discover a more thoughtful approach to life as a result.

Review:

"Douglas Bond has done it again. This story will take your children to Hostage Lands, and at the same time set their imaginations free. And they just might learn a little history, a little of God's providence, and a lot of his mercy to his people." --R. C. Sproul Jr.

"Enjoyable reading for anyone who likes a gripping adventure story. Hostage Lands will especially delight students of Latin and of Roman history as they recognize terms and customs they've studied embedded in this fast-paced tale." --Starr Meade

"Bond transports readers to an epoch of fear, hatred, and treachery—and eternal
hope." --James M. McDonald
