Readers ages eight and up will experience Aeneas' exile and travels firsthand in Ed DeHoratius' dramatic, dynamically illustrated text.

Review by: Nancy Lorraine, Midwest Book Review - August 11, 2010
The Exile of Aeneas Ed Dehoratius, author Brian Delandro Hardison, illustrator Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers Inc. 1570 Baskin Road, Mundelein, IL 60060 9780865167094, $ tba www.bolchazy.com "The Exile of Aeneas" is a "Follow Your Fates" series rewrite of the choices facing Aeneas in 2,000 year old Greek epic literature. The object is for the reader to face the choices originally faced and made by Aeneas, and in making original decisions, learn to compare and contrast values and cultures between modern and ancient times. In addition to learning Classical history and literature through this re-imagining of "The Exile of Aeneas," the reader will achieve another goal effortlessly: entertainment. Third in the series by the author, "The Exile of Aeneas" follows "The Wrath of Achilles" and "The Journey of Odysseus," other Follow Your Fates titles. The prose story of "The Exile of Aeneas" places the reader directly in the action of the "Aeneid," its original source, but based on reader choices, there are 32 possible different endings to the story. Five black and white illustrations by award winning comic book artist Brian Delandro Hardison add to the impact and appeal of "The Exile of Aeneas." Written by a famous teacher of Latin and the classics, "The Exile of Aeneas" is sure to bring an ancient epic to fresh young adult (and older)audiences and new awareness and fame.
