Waiting On Wednesday (142) The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers share which books they are highly anticipating. This week I want to share The Valiant by Leslie Livingston.

Why I'm Waiting: First off, I love the setting of this story. Historical Fiction is huge in YA but we don't see many stories set during the times of the Romans and hardly any involving female Gladiators as the main lead. Secondly, the story is going to have Ceasar! Sure he might be a brute to say the least but any involvement with him is sure to make a great story. Tldr, I am just so excited to get my hands on a copy of this book. C'mon February!

Expected Publication:
February 14, 2017 from Harper Collins Canada



The youngest daughter of a proud Celtic king, Fallon has always lived in the shadow of her older sister Sorcha's legendary reputation as a warrior. But when Fallon was a young child, the armies of Julius Caesar invaded the island of Britain and her beloved older sister was killed in battle.

On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is excited to follow in her sister's footsteps and earn her rightful place in her father's royal war band. But she never gets the chance. Instead, Fallon is captured by a band of ruthless brigands who sell her to an exclusive training school for female gladiators—and its most influential patron is none other than Julius Caesar himself. In a cruel twist of fate, Fallon's worst enemy, the man who destroyed her family, might be her only hope of survival.

Now, Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries, chilling threats and the dangerous attention of Caesar himself to survive the deadly fights that take place both in and out of the arena—and claim her place in history among the Valiant.
