But a storm is brewing. It brings with it a fiery black stallion, uncannily like Dido's beloved Porcellus.</p><p>Word arrives from Rome that her cousin, Abibaal, a talented young charioteer, has been recruited to compete for the evil emperor, Caligula. To save Abibaal, Dido must return to the great Circus Maximus track where she once drove to glory herself, confront her enemy Caligula, and face the toughest, most dangerous race of her life. For 9+.</p><p>'Rich in period detail, with a few real historical characters – its principal invention the idea that a woman might have been a charioteer – this is an involving, well characterised tale that feels original' <br /><i>Sunday Times</i>, Children's Book of the Week, on <i>Race to the Death</i></p>
