A series of Historical fiction books about Bryn's life, written by Kathy Lee. The series begins in Britain, where Bryn lives. Then, the Romans invade their home, and Bryn is taken back to Rome... as a slave. Bryn then faces life as a slave, with many adventures, until he eventually goes back to Britain in the last book of the series. Published by Scripture Union these books have a very strong Christian theme. Bryn becomes a Christian in book I (A Captive in Rome), is persecuted for being a Christian in book II (Rome in Flames), and chooses to go to Britain to escape Rome's persecution in book III (The Edge of the Empire).
Very, very good. I really enjoyed them.

Occasinal descriptions a bit gruesome.
A little bit sad.
In book II (Rome in Flames) Bryn and his friends are threatened with being covered with tar and being burnt alive - but don't worry, this does not happen!

- The Tales of Karensa are also published by Scripture Union, and are also Christian Fiction. Although they are fantasy rather than Historical fiction they are of a similar reading age, and also have plenty of excitement!
