Publisher's Summary

Gladiator Fallon and her warrior sisters must face off against a rival gladiator academy in this lush sequel to the highly anticipated historical fantasy The Valiant.

They call her "Victrix" now. Victory.

But winning the highest honor ever bestowed upon a gladiatrix in Rome has earned Fallon more deadly enemies outside the arena than she ever faced within it. And it is those dearest to Fallon who will pay the price for her success.

Now, Fallon and her warrior sisters are 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 Roman Empire.

Underwhelming after book 1

I loved The Valiant, but the story of this book felt a bit forced and lacked the overall magic of book 1. I rushed to finish it. I'd still love to hear more from this author.

Just as excellent as book one!

I really loved this sequel. It was just as awesome as the first book. When I read The Valiant, it took me some time to get used to the narrator and the story, but this time it all seemed natural. The pacing was faster, and the story didn’t suffer from second book syndrome at all. I read it in one sitting and I’m already highly anticipating the next one.
