Mark of the Thief by Jennifer A. Nielsen is the first novel of the Mark of the Thief series. Nic, a slave in Ancient Rome, stumbles upon a mythical locket. I would rate this story 4/5 stars. The writing style was great, but I disliked the protagonist himself because he was a bit cliche. In fact, I found a majority of the characters cliche. The plot was beautiful, and the pacing was flawless. I didn’t see the plot twist coming, but it still didn’t shock me either. I loved the worldbuilding. I thought the fundamentals of magic in this society was really well-written. Alana, grade 11, of the Yorba Linda Teen Book Bloggers
