Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

This second installment of a fantasy series set in ancient Rome keeps up the fast-paced action and excitement as it picks up where Mark of the Thief left off. Fantasy fans will enjoy the blend of Roman mythology and magic, especially magical creatures such as unicorns, dragons, and griffins. A couple of minor inconsistencies with characters' actions or motives and clunky dialogue heavy on the melodrama will easily be forgiven by readers who love action -- the chariot race is especially exciting -- as the pages keep turning. Another cliffhanger ending will leave kids eager for the third volume.
