Mark of the Thief Series ; Book 1

by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Synopsis

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 ancient bulla; an amulet that belonged to the great Caesar and is filled with a magic once reserved for the Gods magic some Romans would kill for. Now, with the deadly power of the bulla pulsing through his 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 Nic's 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.
