I've ordered that on amazon pre-order, I can't wait to see it. It's been agony not reading up on it in case of spoilers and stuff like that.
It Andy Whitfield is a distant cousin of mine, clearly he got dibs on the good looks and washboard abs...
I enjoyed Gladiatrix, but it isn't for everyone, that's for sure. It has the blood, sex, lust, and hate. Actually, I think the 7 deadly sins are in that novel.
Hey Divia, I'm thrilled that you did but I think some would list the seven deadly sins of Gladiatrix as "switching view points, overuse of adverbs, hyperbole, unlikeable main character, historical inaccuracies, anachronisms and a crappy ending" *lol*
(there's probably more than that too! But hey, you can't please all of the people all of the time - I thought it came out OK in the end
Hey, Russ, I thought about nominating Gladiatrix
as being trashy in a good way, like Richard Blake's Aelric
series and HBO's Rome
, which I love, but wasn't sure if you'd see it as a compliment
Luke Devenish nominated himself for his Empress of Rome
series, btw, so that might be an option, lol!
Hmmmm...I think it might be, Annis! I should write a very serious letter citing my shock and anger at the news that my trashy sex and blood laden fest is not included ...and insist that in the annals of lurid fiction, I demand to be a footnote!
