Disclaimer: I bought this book myself, all opinions are my own.
I was supposed to buddy read this with Suzanne last year in December I believe but I didn’t because I was terrible at them at the end of the year 😂 but I made a TBR jar (rather bucket as it’s actually in a popcorn bucket..) and I pulled out The Valiant so it was finally time to pick it up and damn do I regret not picking it up in December because it was SUCH A GOOD BOOK, I neeeeeed The Defiant AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! which I actually just purchased…
Our female main character, Fallon, was originally a Princess who then gets captured and turned into a slave and sold to an elite training school for female gladiators which is owned by Julius Caesar the main who was responsible for destroying her family and is now her only choice to survive.
It had such a good story and a badass female lead, it didn’t have too much romance in it so it was just right, Fallon wasn’t even the only amazing female character in this story! You get to see so many, Elka being one who Fallon meets when they’re both captured. I love the historical aspect of it too, I’ve always been fascinated with Rome, the story had such a good plot and it has never had a slow moment in it, I highly recommend it and I can’t wait till book two is in my hands 😍
