    2 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum that was, unfortunately, not as good as it could have been Though, if you re simply hankering for a standard Young Adult novel with a flavor of Ancient Rome, I m sure this book will serve its purpose I just wish it hadn t been so hokey.What do I mean by that You could feel the intrusive force of the author s hand, nudging her characters through to the desired storyline every step of the way None of it felt organi 2 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum that was, unfortunately, not as good a...

    This female reimagining of Spartacus was simply fantastic I dont think Ive ever read a historical romance, but what an incredible book to start with and a debut at that Her people massacred and taken from her home Attia is purchased by a Roman as a gift for his gladiator, the Champion of Rome, butthan likely he is using her as a means of controlling him While keeping her identity as the warrior princess of Thrace a secret, Attia plots her revenge on the people who have taken everything This female reimagining of Spartacus was simply fantastic I dont think Ive ever read a historical romance, but what an incredible book to start with and a debut at that Her people massacred and taken from her home Attia is purchased by a Roman as a gift for his gladiator, the Champion of Rome, butthan likely he is using her as a means of controlling him While keeping her i...

    This was a gem of a novel I thoroughly enjoyed this story of a female Spartacus Attia was a complete badass while not falling into the I am too injured and hard to love anyone and anything trope I so disdain A badass girl With feelings Huzzah Not only that, but Xanthus, the gladiator who so easily could have been written as domineering and awful, is kind, gentle, and doesn t try to make Attia anything she isn t Again, huzzah This book hasn t received a lot of buzz, but I definitely recom This was a gem of a novel I thoroughly enjoyed this story of a female Spartacus Attia was a complete badass while not falling into the I am too injured and hard to love a...
