Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A fabulous, well written tale that grabs the reader by the throat and slams them around a tits, tans and testosterone filled version of ancient Rome that leaves them breathless... a rip-roaring, entertaining read." - Shadowlocked

"An incredibly fun romp." - Definitive Geeks

"A vastly entertaining book, with a colorful palette of characters to propel each scene forward.  The pace never slacks, and when your thirst for blood begins to take hold, this book delivers." - The Daily Rotation

"Captures most of the frenetic energy of the series." - Horror Talk

"Unlike most mass market paperbacks produced today, this is a book that can be re-read without falling apart." - Open Letters Monthly

"Villainy and heroism with some blood-soaked action thrown in for good measure." - TV Overmind

    Fantastic Addition to the Spartacus Saga!

    I LOVE this book and wish there were more to follow! It filled in some blank spots in the show that may not have warranted telling on TV. But any "extra" stories of my favorite gladiators are very welcome. If you're a Spartacus fan, you can't go wrong with this book!
