(From the publisher):
Victoria has lost her Roman relatives and alienated her remaining Iceni family. Now she means to avenge her true tribe, going to Italy where she will train to become a female gladiator. Feared and despised by most, Victoria, or Victrix, as she is known now, endures rigorous training, flirting with death on a regular basis. She builds herself a fearsome reputation for her skill in the arena, but when she catches the eye of the cruel, psychotic Emperor Nero, he demands she come to Rome to be his personal muse, and Victrix faces her toughest battle ever.
