Vox in Tenebris


Lucanus, a Roman citizen travelling through Greece, has a big problem: he is far from home, broke, and desperate to make some quick money. A job opportunity soon comes his way, with a big reward: one hundred gold coins! The catch? Lucanus has to stay up all night with the dead body of a prominent citizen. Lucanus takes the job, even though he’s heard the stories that citizens of the town whisper: tales of witches, ruthless and bloodthirsty, who wander the streets after the sun goes down . . .

This novella, accessible to intermediate readers of Latin, is a rollicking and thrilling adaptation of a famous episode from Apuleius’ ancient novel Metamorphoses. This volume includes marginal glosses of unusual vocabulary, a full glossary, and over 100 illustrations to make the reader as accessible as possible.
