Publisher's Summary

Princess. Captive. Gladiator. Always a Warrior.

Fallon is the daughter of a proud Celtic king and the younger sister of the legendary fighter Sorcha. When Fallon was just a child, Sorcha was killed by the armies of Julius Caesar.

On the eve of her 17th birthday, Fallon is excited to follow in her sister's footsteps and earn her place in her father's war band. She never gets the chance.

Fallon is captured and sold to an elite training school for female gladiators - owned by none other than Julius Caesar himself. In a cruel twist of fate, the man who destroyed Fallon's family might be her only hope of survival.

Now, Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries, deadly fights in and out of the arena, and perhaps the most dangerous threat of all: her irresistible feelings for Cai, a young Roman soldier and her sworn enemy.

A richly imagined fantasy for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Cinda Williams Chima, The Valiant recounts Fallon's gripping journey from fierce Celtic princess to legendary gladiator and darling of the Roman empire.

    "Awesome story"

    This was my first time listening to an audiobook, and I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. The story takes a while to speed up, but after that it ended up being fast paced and exciting. I ended up loving it. It took me a while to get used to listening to audio, and I wasn't a big fan of the way the reader did the voices of the characters, but the story made up for that!

    "Couldn't keep my attention"
    What disappointed you about The Valiant?

    I honestly wanted this to be better. It just started off slow and didn't keep my attention. The story line kinda dragged on and on with nothing really happening at the beginning. I didn't really find it worth the time to listen to the rest of it. very disappointing.


    What was most disappointing about Lesley Livingston’s story?

    Such a slow beginning. Some things weren't explained very well. When I listen to or read a book I want to see why the character is experiencing in my head.. It was very vague explaining things.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    if she kept Falons Bf alive maybe but no.


    Any additional comments?

    Super disappointed. I was really looking forward to liking this book but it fell short.
