Teaser Tuesday: Pompeii: City of Fire by T.L. Higley


TEASER TUESDAYS :
hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~





Pompeii: City of Fire: A Novel
He reached out with the knife, jabbed it close to her ear, and watched as she yelped and squeezed her eyes shut. With a flick of his wrist, he sliced a lock of her dark hair from her head and let it fall to the atrium floor.

~ page 140 “Pompeii: City on Fire ARC" by T. L. Higley

** Note: This Teaser is taken from an Advance Reader Copy and may be slightly different from the final version.

About the Book (from Amazon):
Pompeii, a city that's many things to many people. For Cato, it's the perfect escape from a failed political career in Rome. A place to start again, become a winemaker. But when a corrupt politician wrongfully jails Cato's sister, he must oust the man from power to save her.

For Ariella, Pompeii is a means to an end. As a young Jew, she escaped the fall of Jerusalem only to endure slavery to a cruel Roman general. She ends up in Pompeii, disguised as a young man and sold into a gladiator troupe. Her anger fuels her to fight well, hoping to win the arena crowds and reveal her gender at the perfect time. Perhaps then she will win true freedom.

But evil creeps through the streets of Pompeii. Political corruption, religious persecution, and family peril threaten to destroy Ariella and Cato, who are thrown together in the battle to survive. As Vesuvius churns with deadly intent, the two must bridge their differences to save the lives of those they love, before the fiery ash buries Pompeii, leaving the city lost to the world.
