Holy moly this was such a fun read. Action-packed plot with Greek mythology thrown in throughout the story. Nik was such a fun character to read. That ending was nail-biting tense. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Greek mythology.

Cliff hanger leaves for Book 2 with no doubt in my mind. I love that this book is a combination of idea and theme of National treasure and Indiana Jones. Nik is a Highschool teacher without a worry in the world and he visits his grandfather who is mysterious. Nik is named as the next Guardian of the coin and if the coin lands in the wrong hands, evil and havoc will prevail. There is a second coin in the wrong hands so what happens if evil gets the magic of both coins? Read on and find out. This writer is amazing.

This book took me roughly a week to read and I’d rate it 5/5 stars. It was well written and engaging. The main character Nick and his grandfather were well written and relatable. This story has everything from secret rooms and magical coins to weapons and bad guys. Although it wasn’t as action packed as I was hoping and the beginning didn’t really come to fruition just yet, I look forward to reading the next book in the series. This book follows a young teacher as he learns his family history and takes upon a new role as the guardian of the coin. The dialogue and people were extremely likable and their conversation and the plot itself did not seem forced at all. Overall great quick, easy read. I’d certainly recommend it.

The Guardian’s Legacy, what fantastic first book, of what will be a great series. Fans of Dan Brown, will enjoy how the author tangles Greek mythology, ancient minted coins and modern day technology into a worthy adventure!
I enjoyed meeting this generation’s Guardian,
High school teacher Nik Zosimos, the author has done a great job flushing out a protagonist worthy of following into his next adventure.
In book one, Nik begins his real education, learning more than he ever thought he would from his Grandfather, and before you know it we are chasing him across Europe.
Can’t wait for Book Two in the Coin of Time Series by Luciana Cavallaro.

This book was so engrossing! I didn’t want to put it down! I adore the relationship between Nik and his Papou, and found it so relatable with their shared love of history, especially the history of the coin, and how they used it as a way to spend time together. The history shared in the story was fascinating and I was as captivated by it as Nik was as Papou shared. I also really love the bits and pieces the book shows of Nik’s relationships with his students. We’ve all had teachers like him, and a high school history teacher that the students clearly respect is so refreshing to see because it’s a true respect shown like it would be in real life. Nik’s trip and the people he met along the way are just another part of this book that made me not want to put it down! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

A book with it all! Mystery, intrigue, escapades, gambles, exploits and time travel!! I have to admit whenever I have been asked what superpower I would have if I could have just one … 9 times out of 10 I have said time travel. This book brings that to life and the author added such rich detail that the imagery comes into your mind so clear. Nik is a great character and so well defined it was as if I have known him for a really long time. In fact all the characters are so well outlined they all become “book friends”. Luciana Cavallaro makes you truly care about her characters and has you wanting a happy ending for them.
The non stop action will have you clinging to this novel until the very end!
Nik is asked to be “guardian” of an ancient coin that has a twin. The twin has yet to be found but Nik’s grandfather thinks he may know where it is and upon traveling to Europe he disappears. Nik goes after him but ends up being chased by several organizations to which he flips the coin and ends up in a different time!
One of my favorite traits of an author is when they add historical, geological and mythological facts in their story that brings you something extra. This author does just that and in a way that makes these timeless stories new and blends them flawlessly with the tale she is telling. Overall this book gave me the great feels! I cannot wait to slip between the covers of book two!

The first book in the Coin of Time series by Luciana Cavallaro was a real page turner. Nik is a high school teacher who discovers a secret that his grandfather has been keeping. This book included lots of time travel, mythology, and action! A perfect book to get sucked into.

Can I just say Wow! The Guardian’s Legacy was so much fun to read and get lost into its world. If you are a big fan of mythology, history, mystery, then this book is just perfect for you. Nik our main character is tasked with becoming the guardian of an ancient mysterious coin with untold powers that his traditionally his family has protected for many, many years. In order to become the guardian and taking possession of the coin from his grandfather, Nik must train in many different defense arts and even weapons that have not been seen or used for thousands of years! How cool is that?! The mystery you ask: Where did the coin come from, who gave it to the family to safeguard, and where is Grandfather? Read the book but beware, the ending is not as it seems. Cavallaro does a wonderful job of bringing the history aspects to life and the importance of history in our world today. The characters are amazing and believable, and it was so easy to get lost in their world. Join me in reading this wonderful book and relish in the fun of ancient history and mythology.

Nik Zosimos is a history teacher in a local high school where his love of history is passed down to his students as it was passed down to him by his grandfather Iasos, over the years, they have shared many a conversation over food and wine, but when his grandfather calls him in the middle of the day and asks him to come over to his house, Nik is a little worried because it isn’t something that his grandfather would usually do. When he arrives at his grandfathers house, nothing is amiss, he is his usual healthy self and in good spirits as they enjoy a meal and some beers together, that is until his grandfather reveals something to Nik which is about to blow his whole world wide open.

As Nik leaves his grandfathers house in a state of astonishment, the first thing he does is get straight onto the internet and do some research to try and verify what his grandfather has told him, but although some things are confirmed, some of the most vital parts aren’t, but he continues to dig and even asks a colleague for some hints about where to look as well. As he researches, more of his grandfathers revelation makes sense, but now he has to make a decision as to whether he wants to find out more.

Nik takes a couple of days to think about this decision and how serious his grandfather had become while telling him the little he was able to confide in him and it set Nik, it is this and the intrigue his grandfathers words caused him which leads to his final choice. As Nik finds out more about the history of his grandfathers responsibilities and what it means for his future, he also discovers how deep the mystery truly goes and to what lengths people have gone to acquire the knowledge he now has. Will Nik be able to rise to the challenge his grandfather has set him and become the latest guardian, or will time be against him? This is a gripping story which transcends time and which you will become engrossed in the twists and turns within it as the characters themselves.

I have to admit that I have always been a sucker for a little Greek history and mythology! This book hits both of those in one action packed book! I love the detail of the Greek history that is packed into this quick and fun read. Also, the author, Luciana Cavallaro, has done an amazing job portraying the characters and you feel like you are right there with them in this adventure.

Nik visits his grandfather and loves his tales. Are they true? Are they just myths? Totally unknown to Nik, his grandfather gives him a magical coin to protect and keep safe. If it falls into the wrong hands of evil….well read and find out!!
