Aria and Liam: Enigma in Rome by Alizee Monsarrat is a children's historical adventure novel. After their remarkable time in ancient Egypt, Liam and Aria are mysteriously transported to ancient Rome. The pair meet Gaia and her dog Aello running in the streets. Gaia explains that she summoned the kids who saved Egypt to help her prevent the assassination of Julius Caesar. Aria is pleased to help and learn more about the Roman civilization as she loves history. Her partner Liam is less than overjoyed because he does not pay attention in history class, but this all changes when he meets one of his historical idols. Follow Aria, Liam, and Gaia as they join forces with other characters to help prevent the murder of Caesar.
What an adventure. Aria and Liam is an unusual book series that rewrites famous historical events. This is the second installment and it has an interesting premise. In this book, Aria and Liam visit ancient Roman monuments, immerse themselves in the culture, and meet famous historical figures. They also concoct crazy and funny ideas to get out of trouble and solve problems. The story also covers sensitive topics like bullying, parent-child relationships, the importance of education, and providing for the vulnerable in society. Caesar was targeted for assassination because he wanted to implement policies that would benefit the poor. This was a noble cause that both kids and adults should apply in their lives. What I loved the most about this book is the way Alizee Monsarrat hid the identity of the mysterious mastermind of the assassination until the final chapters. Brilliantly written.
