Blood and Sand by C.V. Wyk (January 16, 2018 by Tor Teen)

What can I say? Ancient Rome historical fantasy is like my drug, and after the fantastic time I had with The Valiant by Lesley Livingston earlier this year, I’m feeling in the mood for more stories about female gladiators.  

The action-packed tale of a 17-year-old warrior princess and a handsome gladiator who dared take on the Roman Republic–and gave rise to the legend of Spartacus….

Roma Victor. The Republic of Rome is on a relentless march to build an empire–an empire built on the backs of the conquered, brought back to Rome as slaves.

Attia was once destined to rule as the queen and swordmaiden of Thrace, the greatest warrior kingdom the world had seen since Sparta. Now she is a slave, given to Xanthus, the Champion of Rome, as a sign of his master’s favor. Enslaved as a child, Xanthus is the preeminent gladiator of his generation.

Against all odds, Attia and Xanthus form a tentative bond. A bond that will spark a rebellion. A rebellion that threatens to bring the Roman Republic to its end–and gives rise to the legend of Spartacus….

  1. What a great cover and it sounds really good. I haven’t read The Valiant yet but I know my library has a copy of it so I’m definitely going to grab it soon. Looks like I need to add this one to the wishlist too!
