This is an adventure book set mostly in Rome about an Egyptian girl called Isis, her cat Cleo and an ordinary boy called Tom.
It all started when Isis wanted to get into the Afterlife but hid an amulet from Anubis (the God of the Underworld) so Anubis gave her a punishment and she had to find all 6 amulets. In this book, Tom helps her find the first amulet and ends up fighting undefeatable Romans!
My favourite character was Hilarus the gladiator because he was the bravest in the fight. My favourite part was the fight against Hilarus that Tom and Isis fought in. In the training they wore chains but in the fights they didn’t! In the fight for the amulet it was 5 against 1 and Tom and Isis were 2 of the 5.
I would like to read the other books in this series because this was one interesting, so I think the others will be interesting to.
I would recommend this to girls and boys aged 7+.
I give this book 5 stars.
