Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

This last installment in the Mark of the Thief trilogy keeps the exciting action of the first two books going. Wrath of the Storm also adds a dash of romance as teens Nic, Crispus, and Aurelia learn to face their futures. Fans of magical fantasy will enjoy creatures such as a unicorn, a griffin, and a dragon. The setting in ancient Rome adds appeal for historical fiction fans, too. The pace is pretty evenly split between action sequences and talking strategy. Veteran fantasy fans may get impatient with some of the repetition, such as how many times Aurelia has to tell Nic she's not leaving him. But big kids and tweens will enjoy being caught up in this magical adventure in ancient Rome.
