Publisher's Summary

Two women. Two swords. One victor.

An action-packed tale that exposes the brutal underside of Imperial Rome, Sword of the Gladiatrix brings to life unforgettable characters and exotic settings. From the far edges of the Empire, two women come to battle on the hot sands of the arena in Nero's Rome: Afra, scout and beast master to the Queen of Kush; and Cinnia, warrior-bard and companion to Queen Boudica of the British Iceni. Enslaved, forced to fight for their lives and the Romans' pleasure; they seek to replace lost friendship, love, and family in each other's arms. But the Roman arena offers only two futures: The Gate of Life for the victors or the Gate of Death for the losers.

Wonderful!

I usually pass on writing reviews on books. But this book deserved it! It kinda dragged in the Beginning a bit, but when all was said and done it turned into one of the better books I’ve had the pleasure to read.

Quite the adventure

Loved the various characters throughout the tale, women both bold and brave to disparing and suffering. All across the board, the story never let up on its intricacies weaving each little thing together to get the tapestry of life at the end.
