Find out more about OverDrive accounts. Anyone who thinks ancient history is dry will think again after dipping into these ocean blues. Here, political corruption, intrigue, high-seas adventure, romance, and comedy are all presented in abundance by the likable Marcus Oppius Sabinus, a teenager with a very contemporary attitude.
Marcus is unwittingly involved by his cousin in "promoting" the ambitious young Julius Caesar in an upcoming Roman election. When Marcus proves to be even better at bribery than his cousin had hoped, he is assigned a difficult and dangerous mission. When Marcus proves better at politics than anyone suspected, he is assigned an almost impossible mission.
He must follow an enemy agent across the sea, hoping — with help from a rash young woman and a clever Greek freedman — to stop Cicero from controlling Rome. If Marcus succeeds, he will find himself on the inner circles of Roman power. If he fails, he faces exile — or worse.
The Ancient Ocean Blues can happily be read on its own, but it also serves as the sequel to the author's first book, The Roman Conspiracy. Several characters from the first book appear again here — Aulus Lucinus Spurinna, the consul Cicero, and most notably the over-educated Homer — and the main story takes place only a few months after The Roman Conspiracy ends, in 62 BC.
