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...

Our customer reviews

I love how this book has a bit of everything. Romance, betrayal and good ol' action. Kate Quinn did some serious research - bravo. I love stories in ancient times and she captured it well. At first I couldn't put the book down. Then all of a sudden I couldn't wait to finish it (not in a good way) I thought it was long winded and it was like Quinn had so many ideas and just threw them in the mix.show more
