Story Summary: When Nic, a slave in the mines outside of Rome, is forced to enter a sealed cavern containing the lost treasures of Julius Caesar, he finds much more than gold and gemstones:He discovers an anctient bulla, an amulet that belonged to the great Caesar, filled with magic once reserved for the gods- magic some romans would kill for. Now, with the deadly power of the bulla pulsing through hs veins, Nic is determined to become free. But instead, he finds himself at the center of a ruthless conspiracy to overthrow the emperor and spark the Praetor War, a battle to destroy Rome from within. Traitors and spies lurk at every turn, each more desperate than the next to use Nics newfound powers for their own dark purposes. In a quest to stop the rebellion, save Rome, and secure his own freedom, Nic must harness the magic within himself and defeat the empire’s most powerful and savage leaders.
Your Review: Mark of the Thief was a wonderful book, and I recomend all of my peers to read it and choose it for their next book choice. I think this because the book has lots ov aventure and is exciting to all readers whom like action packed reading. I think this book would be good as a movie because it is action packed and you can visualise while you are reading. Author Jennifer Nelson worked really hard on this book and I love the fact that it makes you want to keep reading and you never want to put the book down.
