Study Guide by Douglas Bond


Join Neil Perkins, Latin student at Haltwhistle Grammar School in England, as he uncovers a story of usurpation, treachery, and betrayal. After unearthing an ancient Roman manuscript, Neil dedicates himself to studying Latin, and translates this exciting story from the third century . . .

Disaffected centurion Rusticus serves Rome at Hadrian's Wall. He is saved from massacre by Calum, a Celt who was deeply changed when he saw Christians martyred in the Roman Colosseum.

The Heroes & History series takes you on epic journeys through turbulent times in history. Douglas Bond gives flesh and blood to heroes as they face war, intrigue, betrayal, loss—and triumph.


“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, Latin teacher, Trinity Christian School, Mesa, AZ

“Bond transports readers to an epoch of fear, hatred, and treachery—and eternal hope.”

—James M. McDonald, publisher, Homeschooling Today Magazine

Hostage Lands is an entertaining, instructive, thought provoking, and ultimately satisfying historical adventure.”

—Katy Johnson, curriculum development, Tacoma (WA) Public Schools
