She defied an empire. Five months have passed since Krista and her band of gladiators delivered a swift and humiliating defeat to the Roman army. Now Krista has become the leader of a slave rebellion that travels across Rome, freeing slaves from their chains and killing their masters; their numbers growing vast as people flock to their cause. But as Krista builds her forces to march against the rising power of tyranny, the Gladiatrix has become accustomed to a level of violence that begins to strain her relationship with those she loves most. Meanwhile, back in Rome, the Empress is devising her own plans for a swift victory as she conscripts vast legions from across the empire and calls on 'The Destroyer'. With a terrifying record of more than fifty bouts; no losses or draws, he is arguably the greatest Gladiator ever to have lived. But as war starts to loom; a new enemy shall present itself to Krista. One that is more deadly than Rome itself and threatens to take the very thing that matters most to the Gladiatrix. Treachery, murder and lies are only a few of the things Krista will have to navigate as she searches for who she is, and all she can become if she is to succeed. As all roads lead to Rome and a war that will shape the world. ________________________________________________________ Deos Fortioribus adese - The gods are on the side of the stronger ________________________________________________________ Sequel to 'Gladiator of Rome' and Book 2 of the 'Gladiator Series'.
