Rivals on the Track, the second book in the Circus Maximus series, is due for release on February 3rd 2022. 

 

Dido is the only girl ever to have raced to victory at the Circus Maximus, Rome's greatest sporting arena. Now she and her beloved horse, Porcellus, are in hiding, and the Emperor Caligula has put a price on their heads. Can she outwit the emperor and his bounty hunters? And will a shocking family secret stop her in her tracks, or spur her on to make a daring return, helped by a one-eyed mare with a heart as brave as her own?

Horses, history, mystery, thrilling entertainment and sensational storytelling race neck and neck through the second pulse-pounding adventure in Annelise Gray's 9+ series set in Ancient Rome.

 

'Second in the thrilling series following a determined young heroine who dreams of horseracing glory, set against the richly drawn backdrop of Ancient Rome. Book one was a Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week'. Fiona Noble, The Bookseller, February highlights previews.

 

'I couldn't leave it alone....the ending! OH! The ending! This is a SUPERB series. If anything, this (might) be better than Race to the Death....full of drama, adventure.....a book where I was almost too worried about what was going to happen next but almost too scared to find out....frankly these books should be read by anyone who enjoys a good story - let alone anyone with an interest in ancient Rome....horses....and people. Place your orders now.' Sue Chambers, Waterstones Finchley Road children's bookseller.

 

'Rivals on the Track is the stunning sequel to Annelise Gray's Roman adventure, Race to the Death.....a thundering adventure, overflowing with danger and daring....teachers often ask for book recommendations to accompany a history topic on the Romans. The Circus Maximus series has slotted into that gap for Upper Key Stage 2 beautifully.' Kate Heap, Scope for the Imagination.
