Lovereading view...

Adventure, passion, betrayal, secrets, blood and violence, this is a hell of a read.  ‘Spartacus for Girls’ about a Jewish slave girl and a Roman Gladiator, it is terrific stuff.  I haven’t been this excited about a first novel since The Russian Concubine.  You need to steal time to read it for you really cannot put it down, and nor should you.


Comparison: Anita Diamant (The Red Tent), Kate Furnivall (The Russian Concubine), Diana Gabaldon.



Synopsis

Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn

Passion. Treachery. Murder...A heart-stopping epic about a Jewish slave girl and Rome's greatest gladiator, who become involved in a plot to assassinate an emperor Orphaned by Rome's savage legions, Thea, a slave girl from Judaea, has learned what it takes to survive. She knows only violence until a chance meeting with gladiator Arius offers a shred of tenderness. But their bond is severed when Thea is sold again, condemned to rot in squalor. Years later, a singer known as Athena betrays no hint of her troubled past. Catching the eye of the Emperor himself, she is swept into a world of decadence and depravity. But although Domitian fears betrayal from every side, he is unaware that the greatest threat lies next to him -- a slave girl who has come to be called the Mistress of Rome...
