    1 thought on “Imperatrix”

    1. One of the things I like so much about Russell Whitfield's rip-banging trilogy on female gladiators is that many of his women - including the heroine, the ferocious, lovely, and endearingly humorless Lysandra - take pleasure in their profession. Most books about gladiators (including my own) focus on slaves who come to the arena unwillingly, but Russell's ladies find pride, honor, and fulfillment in their dangerous career. Life is dangerous anyway; at least the arena offers them a chance at fame [...]

    2. Imperatrix makes a fitting end to the Lysandra trilogy. Lysandra recovers (with divine help) from her near fatal battle with Aesalon Nocturna and gets drafted to fight the Dacians by canny Roman strategist Julius Frontinus. The Dacians destroyed 5 legions and part of this because they had women fighters which made the Roman legions hesitate - so Frontinus hires Lysandra and her female gladiators to be an auxiliary force in a punitive campaign against the troublesome plainspeople. Love the plot - [...]

    3. A satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, but there were numerous typos that should have been caught by the editor. Also, I couldn't help but laugh when(view spoiler)[Lysandra finally came home and her father just took her baby from her?? And Lysandra was like, "Eh, whatever, I guess I owe him"? Both ridiculous and unnecessary, but I imagine childcare duties would get in the way of having hot sex with Illeana. Priorities, I guess. (hide spoiler)]

    4. EPIC!!!!!A brilliant end to a brilliant trilogy.From start to finish this series has been well crafted in it's characterisation and story telling.This ranks alongside Robert Shea's Shike 2 book series as being my favourite historical fiction.I can't praise this highly enough.If you love Historical fiction then just buy this and enjoy it!!

    5. I am utterly, thoroughly and miserably envious of anyone who's not read Whitfield's marvelous and deliriously entertaining Lysandra Trilogy. They have an amazing trio of books to plough through. Imperatrix brings Lysandra and arch-nemesis Sorrina together for one last epic showdown amidst the Dacian Wars. Riveting stuff. A Must Read for any fan of historical fiction.

    6. The culmination of the Epic Ode to Lysandra. Fans will not be disappointed with Lysandra's third adventure. Their only disappointment is that the book ends. Filled with Mercenaries, vengeful lovers, war and carnage, this sweeping tale will transport you back to the battles of the ancient world.
