Wolf's Empire: Gladiator

Pre-Order “Wolf’s Empire: Gladiator” Now!

The reviews are already starting to pour in for Claudia and Morgan Grant Buchanan’s new sci-fi historical fantasy novel, “Wolf’s Empire.”

Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.com:

In the Galactic Roman Empire, eight noble houses fight for power. One gladiator fights for justice. This is Wolf’s Empire: Gladiator, by Claudia Christian’s and Morgan Grant Buchanan.

When her mother and brother are murdered, young noblewoman Accala Viridius cries out for vengeance. But the empire is being torn apart by a galactic civil war, and her demands fall on deaf ears. Undeterred, Accala sacrifices privilege and status to train as a common gladiator. Mastering the one weapon available to her―a razor-sharp discus that always returns when thrown–she enters the deadly imperial games, the only arena where she can face her enemies.

But Fortune’s wheel grants Accala no favors―the emperor decrees that the games will be used to settle the civil war, the indigenous lifeforms of the arena-world are staging a violent revolt, and Accala finds herself drugged, cast into slavery and forced to fight on the side of the men she set out to kill.

Set in a future Rome that never fell, but instead expanded to become a galaxy-spanning empire, Accala’s struggle to survive and exact her revenge will take her on a dark journey that will cost her more than she ever imagined.

Reviews

“Space empires and the Roman Empire go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Claudia Christian and Morgan Grant Buchanan have created a rich, enjoyable tale based on history, liberally seasoned with imagination and pulsating with adventure.” — Kevin J. Anderson, #1 bestselling author of “The Dark Between the Stars.”

“Combines the violent excesses of gladiatorial combat, alien biotech, the heights of cruelty, and the terrible cost of triumph.” — L.E. Modesitt,, Jr., New York Times bestselling author of “The Heritage of Cyador.”

“A big, fascinating book — and it needed every last page to accommodate the vast canvas on which this exciting gladiatorial and high-tech epic is played out.” — Mike Resnick, 5-time Hugo Award winner.

“If the Roman Empire had never fallen, this would be its science fiction. The empire has expanded into space, powerful families are fighting for power, justice and entertainment are brutal, and Rome is definitely not a democracy. A sweeping vision of a very alien future for humanity.” — Sean McMullen, Hugo Award nominee and author of “Souls in the Great Machine.”

“An epic, brutal, bloody work of imagination that thrillingly melds the classical traditions of Ancient Rome with Space Age technology.” -— Cecilia Dart-Thornton, bestselling author of the “Bitterbynde” series.

“Fascinating . . . We now know that Ancient Rome never died but went on to become a vast galactic empire.  This mesmerizing new novel brings its passions and grandeur gloriously back to life.” —Thomas Fleming, New York Times bestselling author of “The Secret Trial of Robert E. Lee” and winner of the Lincoln Prize for Lifetime Achievement in History.

“The story starts big and then keeps opening up, expanding until a galaxy isn’t big enough. I stayed up way too late reading it.” — Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author of “Fatal Thunder.”

“What if Rome never fell, instead conquering the Earth, and expanding its empire to the stars?   Awash with political intrigue and breakneck hand-to-hand combat, Wolf’s Empire: Gladiator wastes no time, giving us a running start to a lushly-written new alternate history series.” — Steven Barnes, co-author of the “Dream Park” series.
