Vesuvius Rising (Vol 2)
Anna Moore the main character of The Gilded Mirror series steps through the mirror once again to find herself back in the first century. She makes friends with Cassius Atticus Vitus, son of Claudius Atticus Vitus a painter. One of my favorite lines from the story. “Why bother making up a story when the truth was more convenient?” Anna finds herself becoming involved at the time of the great earthquake of Mt. Vesuvius is about to erupt. She has only a matter of days. Will she have enough time to save her new found friend? I have come to enjoy the writing of Jocelyn Murray, who does a wonderful job of description of the scenes for the reader to also transport to the places that she allows us to see as her readers. Anna learns how she has taken modern conveniences for granted. Jocelyn Murray has brought back the splendor of Pompeii for all of us to appreciate. This is much more fun to read than a history book. Well done and a pleasure to read. I look forward to reading more of the wonderful works by Jocelyn Murray. I have rated this book a solid 5 stars.
This installment was entertaining and kept me interested throughout. Murray does a great job of making the reader sympathize with and relate to the characters. It is easy to read the story of Pompeii and not feel like it was real because it was such a long time ago. This book really takes the reader to that moment in time through the eyes of a modern girl, and the deadly eruption suddenly becomes personal - those were real families that suffered and died there - many never understanding what was happening because volcanoes were unknown to most people in that part of the world.
This is a great book for teens who have an interest in history, and the character of Anna is very endearing - sweet and brave, able to meet any challenge that she faces. I'm sure I will buy the next installment - this is a YA series but I am enjoying it immensely.
