They arrive in Athens and chase up the Acropolis in which they lose him. So machen sich die Freunde auf die Verfolgung des fl├╝chtigen Aristo oder sind es vielleicht zwei Fl├╝chtende? Once in the hills Flavia discovers that Aristo has a brother Dion, who is also looking for him and whose appearance can solve what really happened. The Corinth canal - which didn't exist in Roman times of course - from our trip there 10 years ago There were other fun touches too, my favourite being 'he will live long and prosper' in the Pythia's oracle, though that might just be my Trekkie brain over-reacting. Believing him guilty, Flavia, along with her friends and the sailor Atticus, sets off to catch him. Give contextual explanation and translation from your sites! Captain Geminus was in Aristo's room so he wouldn't have to pass him and wake him on his way out in the morning. Dion showed so much mercy and forgiveness that Flavia said she wouldn't take him to court, but wouldn't stop her father if he did. Who else is after the young tutor? I liked the Greek setting and life, as a change to the usual Roman setting and lifestyle.

However the whole Lupus's mother being able to give prophecies was weird. Nubia, meanwhile, is definitely my favourite character, as she is, as ever, the most sensible and level-headed of the children and the most perceptive. Frazer's famous doorstopper , and votive offerings have been found there. Oddly enough, this one reminded me of Harry Potter in a couple of places and not just because I'm re-reading Potter at the moment.

I was glad I was able to solve the mystery. She's so sad because she knows how much pain he's in and refuses to give up finding Aristo, who is on the run.

Nubia and Flavia follow, and Flavia locks them in. All three cities are clearly described, along with the route taken by the children and their guide and bodyguard - as ever, the books remain sufficiently attached to reality that these children do not travel alone, though Flavia is in charge.

However the whole Lupus's mother being able to give prophecies was weird. Although the budget didn't stretch to some of the most spectucular ancient sites in Greece, it is very nicely shot and I totally want a Caudex of my own please not as a slave, obviously - as a butler, maybe. The action surrounding Flavia's father being stabbed brought pace to the novel, and finally meeting Lupus's mother was worthwhile too. The story takes us from Corinth to Delphi to Athens, accompanied by Jonathan's guide book, which is, sadly, a little under 100 years too old to be that of , but is very similar. I am quite caught up in the meta-story, wondering how these live This is the 10th in the series; there are, I believe 19 at this time.
