Sole survivor of a shipwreck off the coast of Asia Minor, Lysandra finds herself the property of Lucius Balbus, owner of the foremost Ludus for female gladiators in the Eastern Empire. Lysandra, a member of an ancient Spartan sect of warrior priestesses, refuses to accept her new status as a slave. Forced to fight for survival, her deadly combat skills win the adoration of the crowds, the respect of Balbus.

This is a thrilling first novel that combines fascinating historical detail with blistering action. Since Spartacus is one of my favourite TV shows and Gladiator is an epic film, I had high hopes for this book. But even with my high hopes, I was not prepared for how much I would absolutely love this book! Love, lust, rage, loss, suffering, revenge. I found myself hoping, praying, crying, and sympathizing.

This book seriously yanked at my emotions! Gladiatrix is so much more than just the bloody life of a gladiator. It follows the life of a slave — with all the hurts, dreams, and losses that that entails.

I felt every betrayal, every pain, and every loss so much more potently through the words of a book.

I felt like everything that happened to her was happening to me. At the beginning, I fell in love with the main character, Lysandra. I completely sympathized with her situation. She was once an honoured Spartan warrior priestess but was captured and thrown into a world of gladitorial arts and slavery.

So I completely understood when Lysandra lost her will to fight and felt as if she shamed her people and her priesthood. From there, I constantly flipflopped between being annoyed with her, hating her, admiring her, and sympathizing with her. She proved to be arrogant and self important. It was an interesting form of arrogance though. She was a little annoying, but at least she was trying to be helpful. And throughout all her hardships, I found myself wanting to reach out and hug her or something.

As a bit of a warning, this book is very sexual and very violent. That could turn people away from it. But in addition to just having sex, Gladiatrix does have some pretty vulgar scenes rape.

But back to the subject.. I thought the romance in the book was brilliantly crafted. I loved the relationship and I could relate to their feelings completely. My biggest gripe with this book was the ending. Thanks for a great read, Russell Whitfield!

The Verdict.
