Reread Campaign: The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

Hello! Happy Thursday, fellow bibliovores. I'm excited to be a part of the re-read campaign for The Valiant, The Defiant, and The Triumphant. This trilogy by Lesley Livingston is coming to a close, so what better time to re-read (or read!) the first book. 

Check out The Valiant!

The Valiant (The Valiant, #1)

The Valiant by Lesley Livingston
Book One of The Valiant series
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication Date: February 14, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Lost to history, the story of the female gladiator has never been told. Until now.

Fallon is the daughter of a proud Celtic king and the younger sister of the legendary warrior Sorcha. When Fallon was just a child, Sorcha was killed while defending their home from the armies of Julius Caesar.

On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is excited to follow in her sister's footsteps and earn her place in her father's war band. She never gets the chance.

Fallon is captured by ruthless brigands who sell her to an elite training school for female gladiators owned by none other than Julius Caesar himself. In a cruel twist of fate, the man who destroyed Fallon's family might be her only hope of survival. 

Now, Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries, deadly fights in and out of the arena, and perhaps the most dangerous threat of all: her irresistible feelings for Cai, a young Roman soldier and her sworn enemy.

A richly imagined fantasy for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Cinda Williams Chima, "The Valiant" recounts Fallon s gripping journey from fierce Celtic princess to legendary gladiator and darling of the Roman empire."

My Mood Board:

  1. I like your mood board! I've not started this series yet, and now that the series is complete, it seems like a good time.

  2. I hope it's as good the second time around.
