Getorix: The Eagle and The Bull

The Eagle and The Bull
by Judith Geary

Getorix has one last opportunity to gain his father’s regard and earn welcome into the Otherworld as a man. At almost fifteen winters, he marches beside his father, a defeated Celtic leader, in the Roman triumph parade – a celebration that ends in death. To face the ordeal of sacrifice before the Romans will truly be his man-making.

Instead, the gods throw him entirely different challenges.

Can Getorix accept friendship with the Roman who spares his life if the cost is his honor?Modern readers will relate to the difficulties these two youths from opposing cultures face in reconciling their differing experiences and value systems. The ancient Roman setting lends a fantastic quality, yet the political turmoil and social upheaval evoke parallels with our own time.
