'Dear Uncle Paul - Today I'm going to be eaten by a lion. They tell me it will be quick...' Agnes and her fellow Christians sit in their cell, waiting to be thrown to the lions. Cass, the young trainee lion-keeper, is in charge today. Little does he know what a complicated day it's going to be! Terry says: 'Into the Lion's Den is a chance for me to keep my history fans happy and, at the same time, keep myself happy by writing it in story form. The background to the story, Christians eaten by lions in the Colosseum, was very carefully researched and some of the characters are based on real people. Hopefully readers will get the best of both worlds - fascinating facts and a terrific tale.'
