Part of the The Roman Mysteries SeriesWrite A Review
On a mission for the Emperor Titus, Flavia and friends head to Morocco to find a lost emerald mentioned in a prophecy, in the fourteenth of The Roman Mysteries.
Flavia and her friends are on a quest for the Emperor Titus - to steal a valuable gemstone known as 'Nero's Eye'. The Oracle of Delphi prophesied that whoever owns the gem will rule Rome - so Titus is determined to claim it for himself. The friends travel on a caravan across the desert, facing slave-traders, pantomime actors and a wild animal stampede!
