After stumbling across a Gladiator Arena that's trapped in time, Nick and Kat are caught and trained as gladiators. When their escape attempts fail, they're forced to fight a mythical half-wolf, half-lion beast. Will they be able to defeat this monster? And what will happen when the beast escapes into the streets of modern day Rome?

The Toxic books offer exciting, shorter stories (just 48pp each) for readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want fast-paced, adventure stories.
