Big bash league series Any two titles read from this series can be included as official Challenge books; up to five more titles can be included as your personal choice books. Big bash league: Academy smash Billy loves to bowl, fast! He is also a massive Melbourne Stars fan and when his friend Wen Lee lets him know about a cricket academy camp, run by none other than the Stars, Billy is desperate to go!
So is Wen Lee, even if she does barrack for the Brisbane Heat. Trouble is, the applications are about to close and Billy needs to find a way to raise money for the entry fee. Perhaps a speed bowling competition is in order! Instead, most of the time, Nic just uses the bulla and has to learn how to control his Divine Star magic, if you will. The ending confused me even more as to the relationship between the two. I'm very confused by all of the glowing reviews for this. While it has action and magic, it's also uneven, rather flat, and features a main character who conveniently forgets about his griffin until it's time to drag her back into the narrative again.
There's also some truly cheesy dialogue on par with James Bond villains. This was a slog, like the one Nic took through the Cloaca Maxima, and I don't want to do it again in following books.

Finally, Nick winds up keep it himself instead and then the adventure begins. I haven't read much of YA book in Roman period so it's quite interesting Come into Roman Empire and watch the fighting of gladiators. I haven't read much of YA book in Roman period so it's quite interesting to me, to begin with. However, I think the first book is kinda introduction to the world of this series. Nothing much happen in the first half, but you will get to know a lot of interesting information about Roman hist, Caesar, or many things about world building.

Strong, sarcastic, quick-wit, and stubborn. I highly recemmend!
Though, judge only book 1, I still prefer The Ascendance Trilogy , but if you like reading book about Roman world setting more, this is the better option and you should give it a try! No insta-love and annoying love triangle, man! I also love the female lead: Aurelia , she is strong and feisty. Her tension with Nick is my fave! I even wanna beg for more. After I finished it, I had feelings the next book will be exciting even more and I cannot wait for it! Nick and Aurelia's moments still linger in my head! Mar 09, Amy marked it as to-read Shelves: new-for Okay—Ancient Rome, secret magic, and everything epic.
Then: Expected publication, Damn Unfortunately, those expectations may have backfired on me. I really wanted to like this one. After all, how can you go wrong with a plot involving a young escaped slave in the later Roman era, treasures of Julius Caesar, Roman gladiator-style action, political backstabbing-intrigue, and a griffon companion?kerlamormeoplan.tk

For most readers to really get into a novel, they must truly empathize with the main character s , particularly in a first person POV narrative such as this. So for me, the style of interaction among the characters was an instant problem. At first I thought this author was one of those who over uses the exclamation point! But then I realized that they actually were almost always in arguments and so perhaps that particular form of punctuation was appropriate!
It can be difficult to be sympathetic towards your teenage narrator when he is always angry or unable to accept an apology while at the same time never apologizes for his own boorish behavior. The main plot of this one proved to be pretty well thought out, with several climactic moments but, unfortunately, it unfolded in a somewhat clunky manner. There are quite a few plot points that seemed crammed in, with some getting too much focus and others hardly touched upon. One scene for example, depicted a father discovering the identity of his daughter almost 20 years after he had thought she had died shortly after birth.
That got about four sentences. And these were both major characters in the novel. Several surprise reveals occurred as well with no warning, enough so that I grew hardened against further contrivances. The really big one at the end, therefore, had little impact on me. Additionally, there is quite a bit of high-level political shenanigans transpiring among the praetors but the effort to decide which faction was worth our hero supporting proved too complicated to deduce. It was not a good sign when I found myself reading the words of this novel but thinking more about which book I wanted to read next.
Perhaps I suffer from having read so many wonderful fantasy novels by talented authors but it really bugs me when I come across a novel that makes constant use of powerful magic but has no explanation for it or how it works. In this book, the main character can use magic after discovering the lost bulla amulet of Julius Caesar and being marked on his shoulder.
He seems to be able to use his new magic powers by…get this…concentrating on what he wants to accomplish. His use of the magic is clumsy at first but after a couple of days of good hard practice, he was able to take on the most powerful user of magic known to exist. This is a first novel in a series and I feel certain the author may well address some of these items as she fleshes out the story. We may also get more from our main characters and the protagonist might mature a little more and not be so angry all the time.
Or perhaps not.

Time will tell. Just finished reading the amazingly spectacular The False Prince and it has most definitely guaranteed the wonderful Jennifer Nielsen as a writer on my Forever Fave list. Oct 09, Andrea C rated it it was amazing Shelves: View all 5 comments. This book was due back at the library and I just got it back today. Thanks, library. The setting wasn't my favorite since I'm not really big on Roman history. The writing also felt sub-par compared to her other books I was a bit uncertain going into this book, but reading it just confirmed my suspicions.
