Publisher's Summary

Forged in battle...from the dust of the arena...a legend will rise

The action-packed tale of a 17-year-old warrior princess and a handsome gladiator who dared take on the Roman Republic - and gave rise to the legend of Spartacus....

For teens who love strong female protagonists in their fantasy and historical fiction, Blood and Sand is a stirring yet poignant audiobook about two slaves who dared take on an empire, by talented debut author C. V. Wyk.

Roma Victrix. The Republic of Rome is on a relentless march to create an empire - an empire built on the backs of the conquered, brought back to Rome as slaves. Attia was once destined to rule as the queen and swordmaiden of Thrace, the greatest warrior kingdom the world had seen since Sparta. Now she is a slave, given to Xanthus, the Champion of Rome, as a sign of his master’s favor. 

Enslaved as a child, Xanthus is the preeminent gladiator of his generation. Against all odds, Attia and Xanthus form a tentative bond. A bond that will spark a rebellion. A rebellion that threatens to bring the Roman Republic to its end - and gives rise to the legend of Spartacus....

The story continues in Fire and Ash, coming in 2019 from Tor Teen.
