About the Book

In 88 B.C. King Mithradates Eupator VI of Pontus ordered the murders of every man, woman, and child of Latin heritage in all of Asia Minor {Today’s Turkey} and the Aegean Cyclades. A state organized genocide or murder of Romans covering half a continent and over one hundred thousand victims. Herein resides the account of one exceptionally unfortunate and resilient youth. He awakes to a dissimilar world and discovers his life torn to shreds. Yet he makes the most of his situation with brains, bravado, and spiritual strength. This is further the narrative of those brave Ionian souls who we re willing to risk their lives to assist this Roman lad. Witnessing his families’ demise, the young man survives and is the last Latin speaking citizen remaining alive in this vast area.
