While staying with his father in Rome for the summer, twelve-year old Andy travels back in time and finds himself in the middle of a horrifying event at the Roman Colosseum almost two thousand years ago – during the time of the gladiators. As he journeys through centuries, he meets Leonardo DaVinci, Queen Elizabeth, and a girl that he wishes lived in his time. Superstitions and paranoia abound in the Middle Ages, and after Andy becomes a prisoner in the Tower of London and the subject of a witch hunt, he will need more than courage to keep himself and his friends alive.
