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.
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...
