Meh. I think our kids will enjoy this series. It's super fast paced, has lots of battles, magic, and betrayals, with a solid cast of characters. Definitely a good readalike for Percy Jackson fans or kids who might want a page turner. For me, I didn't love the way the girls in the story only really had actions as they related to motivating the main character (a boy). It all fell a bit too neatly into tropes of protecting your sister's virtue, rescuing the love interest who trusted the wrong person, etc. Easy choice for a booktalk though, and it helps that multiple books in the series are out.

This is great - loved the first book - brought me back to the excitement of The False Prince! But this time with mythical beasts and Roman Empires. ( )

Nic, a slave working the mines in ancient Rome, predicts trouble when a general forces him to go down a sealed cavern, supposedly filled with Julius Caesar’s treasure. Then, Nic snatches a bulla, an amulet filled with magic given by the gods, to free him & his sister. Now, he’s the most wanted fugitive in Rome.

In the beginning the main character ,Nic is stuck in the mines of Rome as slave. His master is called Sal and he treats Nic worse then dirt. When Radulf arrives at the mines he sends Nic into a cave that is rumored to hold Ceaser's bulla. This bulla is known to hold legendary powers that only some people can wield. After being lowered down into the cave Nic finds more gold than he could ever imagine- and a griffin. The griffin scratches Nic as he tries to get the bulla. The scratch turns into the Divine Star witch allows Nic to harness the powers of the bulla. Nic flies away on the grifin and soon most of Rome is after him to try and get the bulla back.

I enjoyed this book because it combined mythology and it showed you how slaves were treated in Rome. It also showed some culture of the Romans and the Gauls. This book was as informing as a history book and was as entertaining as a sci-fi book. I gave the book this rating because anyone could read it and most people would like it. Also because the mythology was interesting and taught me some things I didn't know. ( )

The historical inaccuracies pile on each other as fast as the sentences develop. If you have a historical setting the least you can do is read a tiny bit about their culture before you start.
I will not be reading anything from this author. ( )

[Starred Review] Compelled by an ambitious general to retrieve an amulet from Julius Caesar’s treasure, long hidden in a mine outside Rome, Nic—a slave with attitude—more than succeeds, upending his life and escalating conflict among the power brokers of imperial Rome. Caesar’s bulla (a good-luck amulet given to boys in wealthy families), a gift from his ancestress the goddess Venus, is especially powerful. ... There’s more to Nic than meets the eye—effervescent, hot-tempered, irreverent and funny, he’s a bracing antidote to jaded teen heroes commenting ironically from the sidelines. ... The fast-paced, ingenious plot, charismatic hero and highly diverse cast of characters—including the ancient, eternal city itself—make this series opener a captivating joy ride. (Historical fantasy. 10-14)

In vivid first-person narrative, Nielsen (the Ascendance Trilogy) sketches a slave’s-eye view of the Roman Empire. Five years of hard labor in the mines haven’t quelled Nic’s will to survive. ... Dropped down a mine shaft to search for a possible buried trove, Nic emerges with a griffin, a scar, and a golden bulla, a magical amulet that once belonged to Julius Caesar. Freedom is within reach.... the story is true to the political and social culture of the time without committing too closely to its political history. This maximizes Nielsen’s scope for creating page-turning twists while evoking a milieu that retains its appeal for history buffs. Ages 10–14.
