Audible Editor Reviews

This is the story of teenaged Simon ben Eleazar and his life among the Jewish refugees on Masada in the first century. Simon's tragic story is told in a series of first-person narrations that describe his troubles, hopes, and dreams, alternating with dispatches from Flavius Silva, commander of the Roman legion attempting to breach the fortress. Although this is a vivid tale rich in historical detail, the tone is somewhat stilted and old-fashioned, which could make it a tough sell to the teenagers of today. Nevertheless, performer Josh Hurley's clear voice is a great fit for the brave protagonist, and listeners will find his recreations of Simon's life memorable.

Publisher's Summary

In this eloquent and powerful audiobook, 17-year-old Simon ben Eleazar and 960 Jewish zealots face the advancing Roman Tenth Legion in a battle that will decide the fate of the last Jewish fortress.
