Publisher's Summary

Space station security specialist Sam has done one thing since her abduction by alien slavers...fight to survive. But now one strong alien gladiator stands at her side and Sam knows she is no longer alone. 

Thrust into a lawless desert arena, Sam Santos has done terrible things in order to stay alive. As the Champion of Zaabha, she's been fighting to find a way out. Everything changes when the Imperator of the House of Galen sacrifices his freedom to help her. The hard-bodied, fierce man has vowed to help her escape, but getting out of Zaabha is only the first deadly task they face. 

Galen was bred to be a royal bodyguard and protect his prince. With his planet now destroyed, he's grown powerful and forged his wealthy gladiatorial House on the desert planet of Carthago. All Galen knows is honor, service, and sacrifice. Now his life depends on working with one battle-hardened woman of Earth as they fight together to survive. But Sam Santos is not what he expected. Tough, yes. A brilliant fighter, for sure. But there is a softer side to the woman as well. And Galen finds himself irrevocably drawn to all of Sam's captivating facets. 

Then they uncover a devious plot by the Thraxians that could bring down the foundations of the Kor Magna Arena and all they hold dear. Galen and Sam will stop at nothing to defeat the evil alien slavers, even if it means war. In amongst the fighting, Sam may finally show a man who lives for everyone else, that he deserves more than just honor and freedom, but love as well...if they survive the coming battle.

Really good

BOOK REVIEW..... Galen and Sam are an awesome couple. Love the heat and sexiness between them. They are high up in my list of favorite couples in this and all of Ms. Anna's series. I totally recommend this book and this author. If you haven't tried this series you are missing out some great stories. NARRATOR REVIEW...... The narrator did a good job

It all comes down to this

This book focuses on the Imperative Galen, Sam Santos and the final push to rid Carthago of the Thraxians once and for all. This is a great read/ listen. The characters are developed and intermingled with one's from previous books, so while it is a standalone story, it is greatly enhanced by knowing the stories that came before. Always a pleasure to read.

My favorite so far

WOW, that is all I can say just WOW I so love how Sam and Galen came together in this book Sam is such a strong woman and of course Galen is stubborn as can be. The path and challenges they face make them both stronger and better together then apart. If you have read any of the Galactic Gladiators this is a MUST read

Finally!

This is a long awaited book for fans of Anna Hackett's Galactic Gladiator series. Galen has been ever present in the first 10 books of the series but we, the readers, have never had more than a mere glimpses of the man. This is his book and we finally learn just what makes him tick. Vivienne Leheny does an excellent job (I've said it before, she's one of my favorite narrators).Filled with action and steam, this book delivers -- keeping the pages turning and heating up your reader.

An excellent conclusion to the Galactic Gladiators

This was one of the most highly anticipated Character of the Galactic Gladiators Series for most all of Anna's Fanbase. I've enjoyed the Series so much and loved the way Anna Hackett wrapped up the Series. The entire Series was unique, original, and one of a kind. Kudos to an excellent Series by Ms.Hackett. Vivienne Leheny does such an excellent job with this Series as well. I've read the books several times, but now listening to them, she's given me a totally new experience. She's even made me laugh and favour a few characters more than I did the first time reading them through. Fantastic!

Another awesome book Anna!!

I've bought every single book in this series and I've enjoyed each one. From the storyline, to the narration, it was a great read. Vivienne Leheny did an awesome job with the narration of this series. The only thing that made me want to run out in traffic while screaming was the CONSTANT use of the Spanish word "dios"!!! There are many other words in the Spanish language, but after hearing the word at least 8 times, with 4 being only minutes apart (that was in Chapter 12)... I wanted to pull my hair out! I stopped counting after 8, but it was a lot more earlier in the book. I tried to block it out after that. Dont get me wrong, I really enjoyed this book, and each and every one that Anna has written, but that really got on my nerves. I will buy every book that she writes, even after this review because she's a fantastic author, but I had to give a true review. Still a 5 star book, and a 5 star author!

Excellent

Imperator is the 11th book in the Galactic Gladiators series and the main focus of the story is Sam Santos a human survivor of the abductions from the space station and now the Champion of Zaabha and Galen the Imperator of the House of Galen. The two come together in fire and time and time again until Sam is finally freed from Zaabha escaping with Galen. The chemistry between the two is explosive to say the least and in a final battle they bring down the Thraxians and Zaabha with the help of the other gladiators of the House of Galen and their allies which this time include all the houses of the Kor Magna Arena. Finally all the humans slaves are freed or are they? Another book full of action, humour and steamy romance which is irresistible and I highly recommend the book and the series as a whole.

***Imperator Galen***

The last book in the house of Galen and it's the best, Galen and Sam are outstanding and a perfect match. Anna Hackett the queen of action thank you for continuing the gladiator story and I would love to read about the Wraithe as well pls ;) listening to this books feels like a roller coaster ride, it's dizying in its intensity and takes your breath away. I can't get enough if these sexy alien gladiators so looking forward to more. Vivienne Leheny as always is brilliant.
