Kaitlyn rated it really liked it Jul 05, Paperbackpages. The author has spun a good yarn, but the whiftield does not have the nuance of greater works. Because really, with a title like Gladiatrix, whose to say if this would be little more than erotica fantasy playing with the word Dominatrix? A story about half-naked women oiled up and forced to fight in the arena for the entertainment of the masses. Anyway, the lead actress in that is also a Silat Guru – Cecily Fay is her name – and now, years later, I’m training with the Gladiatrix herself.


Gladiatrix (Gladiatrix, #1) by Russell Whitfield

As a bit of a warning, this book is very sexual and very violent. I know too much. And perhaps he is not wrong. The ending, which I won’t spoil by mentioning here, also seemed a little gladiatirx clean cut to be true. However, these days my favourite band are called Hysterica – Gladiatrix Metal, believe it or not I didn’t till I went to their website, but the proof in in the pictures. They are games where coming second usually means the end whitfielv your life.

Forced to fight for survival, her deadly combat skills win the adoration of the crowds, the respect of Balbus.

Mar 03, Christina rated it it was amazing Shelves: The side stories are setting the scene for the final novel of the trilogy. The characters, while entertaining in their idiosyncrasies, are slightly two-dimensional and at times, inconsistent.

The author doesn’t go into detail on specifically how she is no longer a priestess. Mar 24, Mariela rated it it was amazing.

This book centers around a Spartan named Lysandra, and how she is forced into slavery to fight for her life in the gladiatrix games.

This enmity is not-only fueled by the hostility of the non-Mediterranean peoples towards the Hellenes and Romans. Educated to A-Level, he did not complete college, preferring instead to seek fame and fortune in a heavy metal ryssell.

After the epic battle Sorina and Lysandra put on for the emporor they each went their own ways, Sorina went home to plan out her vengeance on Rome and Lysandra built her temple to Athene and had not fought since growing soft. Its not brilliant, but it’ll pay the bills until I get that call from Gladiatrrix Jolie demanding to option my books.


Jun 19, Tim rated it really liked it Shelves: Whatever your gender or sexuality, I would challenge you to read this passage without becoming so turned on that you will have to stop and pause for breath.

This is a thrilling first novel that combines fascinating historical detail with blistering action. Mar 05, Heron rated it liked it.


Almost a 5, but I have a hard time with sexual violence, and there are a couple of scenes that were pretty hard for me to handle. And while I don’t want to give away a strong plot point, his redemption is one of the nicer aspects to this multi-threaded book. The Emperor Domitian’s passion for novelty and variety in the arena has given rise to a very different kind of warrior: Numerous other characters are introduced or re-introduced from “Gladiatrix” throughout the story.

As one would expect from the time period and setting, the world crafted by Russell Whitfield is brutal and violent. Jun 17, Jane rated it did tussell like it Shelves:
