Mark of the Thief

Mark of the ThiefWritten by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Nic is a slave in Rome. He spends his days in the mines. His motivation to comply is his sister’s safety. One day he is forced to enter a cave filled with magical treasure and a Griffin. He suddenly finds himself in possession of magic. Unwittingly, he becomes woven into a plot to overthrow the Emperor and Rome. Will Nick gain his freedom? Will he be able to save his sister? The interwoven plot shows Jennifer A. Nielsen’s unique and enrapturing way of hooking and keeping the reader. This is a great read for fans of The False Prince series, or those who are looking for a great fantasy/adventure novel.
