The darling of the Roman Empire is in for the fight of her life in this lush sequel to the acclaimed historical fantasy The Valiant.
Be brave, gladiatrix... And be wary. Once you win Caesar's love, you'll earn his enemies' hate.
Fallon was warned.
Now she is about to pay the price for winning the love of the Roman people as Caesar's victorious gladiatrix.
In this highly anticipated sequel to THE VALIANT, Fallon and her warrior sisters find themselves thrust into a vicious conflict with a rival gladiator academy, one that will threaten not only Fallon's heart - and her love for Roman soldier Cai - but the very heart of the ancient Roman Empire.
When dark treachery and vicious power struggles threaten her hard-won freedom, the only thing that might help the girl known as Victrix save herself and her sisters is a tribe of long-forgotten mythic Amazon warriors.
The only trouble is, they might just kill her themselves first.

This second book in the Trilogy is everything and maybe a bit more than the first (The Valiant). The story has some of the typical Gladiator storylines, but so much more in the rich development of the characters and plenty of the unexpected twists and turns that make for (5) STAR adventurous excitement. Fallon is someone u can’t help but fall in love with and to ride along with the how she and her Big Sister play out their adorable sibling rivalry. Read these books you’ll have wild-ride of your own.

i love this as a continuation of the series. it had all the same elements — action, anguish, betrayal, darkness, light, and love — in another story. i personally believe the first was more in depth and full. in some ways this felt like an episode of a series vs the whole middle 1/3 of it. but it was still very good.
