He is influenced by the forces of that time; zealot, Christianity, and the struggle for shear survival. He feels God calling him but tries to turn his back, to go on his own way. Instead he finds himself in slavery, being beaten by his masters, hungry, destitute. Then he meets someone that changes the direction of his life. She goes on to become his wife and influences his decision to turn to the Lord. He becomes involved in the church and meets many of the early apostles, and then the persecution of the church begins.

The Chronicles of Marcus Book Two May 1, 2008
I am the author of this novel. It is the second of what is planned to be a five book series. The reason I"m writing this in the review section is because I cannot seem to get anyone to respond otherwise. The correct title of this Book Is Sub-Titled (ESCAPE TO BRITANNIA)It is an exciting adventure packed historical/biblical fiction novel that young and old, christian and non-christian alike can read and enjoy.
Excellent Oct 18, 2007
Not much on novels until I read this wonderful book. I never have understood the term, "just couldn't put the book down." I do understand it now. Anxiously awaiting the next volume.
Very good - except Oct 13, 2007
I did enjoy reading this book - though hardly a masterpiece. Some issues - The editing got progressively worse as the book continued. I find it distracting to come across 'your' when 'you're' is the intended word. But, there were also the kind of errors made when a document has only been spell-checked by a computer. Stopping to think about why the word 'tour' is there and finally figuring out that the word should be 'your' is by far more distracting. I also felt the story started a bit slow. The pace did pick up about halfway, however, including the grail seemed a bit gratuitous and an obvious plant for a second book. In all, for a first novel it was very good, but I'm getting very tired of authors trying to wring two or even three books (Or 5 in the case of Beverly Lewis' "Abram's Daughters") from a story. It's fine to invest in three books if they're written by Terry Brooks, but another for a first-time author with an OK book. Especially if the author doesn't seem to care enough to properly edit the book.
Excellant Read!! Outstanding writing. Gripping to the end. Sep 13, 2007
This is an exciting tale of a young man coming to manhood in biblical times. Paul Dyal keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see how Marcus will get out of each predicament. It brings bible times to life; you can almost picture yourself in this life. This is one of those books you hate to set down. I'm looking forward to the next installment on the life of Marcus. I can't wait to see what next befalls him.
A masterpeice! Jul 9, 2007
