Guiamo is a very gifted boy who was abandoned in Gaul when he was only 10 years old. He was found by a fisherman who took him in and recognized his talents. Even at 10, he was inventing better ways to catch fish. Other men in the village also taught him skills and life lessons. He also is mentored by a merchant. As the years go by, Guiamo shows talents in many other ways and is destined to be much more than a fisherman. This book also shows a little of what it is like to live in the Roman Empire in 60 B.C. I like history and this was very interesting to read about each of the characters and how life was back then.
If you like historical fiction, this is a great read. It was hard to put down and I was up late a few nights reading this. I am definitely going to check out the rest of the books in the series.
I received a free ebook copy in exchange for a review. All opinions above are 100% my own.
