Now, with the deadly power of the bulla pulsing through his veins, Nic is determined to become free. But instead, he finds himself at the center of a ruthless conspiracy to overthrow the emperor and spark the Praetor War, a battle to destroy Rome from within. Traitors and spies lurk at every turn, each more desperate than the next to use Nic's newfound powers for their own dark purposes.
In a quest to stop the rebellion, save Rome, and secure his own freedom, Nic must harness the magic within himself and defeat the empire's most powerful and savage leaders.

This one was pretty good although not one that I would say omg you need to read this one now. But, if you are looking for a good book about loyalty and magic set in Rome pick this one up. The setting was great the first part of the book was good. It did start to drag a bit when Nic got to Rome. But after that it had its climic parts and the characters were likable.
