    "My sister told me what your Queen Penthesilea once said, 'Not in strength are we inferior to men... the same our eyes, our limbs the same; one common light we see, one air we breath. What then denied to us have the gods on man bestowed?' Help me prove the truth of her words. Hel...

    While I understand the reasoning behind having a year between books in a series, it doesn't help my memory. You see, after a year, I can barely remember who was who and what happened in the previous book. That was the case here. I knew this was about gladiatrixes, but I had completely ...

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/01/20/... I adored the first book?finally, a Young Adult novel I was really hyped up for that didn?t disappoint me?but this sequel was even better. I think it?s safe to say if you enjoyed The Valiant, then The ...

    4.5* This series is so good! I was hooked from book one with a female gladiator on the cover. As soon as I started reading the first book I wanted a trilogy right away! The sequel was very good but I did like the first book better but that seems to be normal in a lot of trilogies. I ...

    The much acclaimed sequel to The Valiant started off with a bang regarding a competition between the two rival gladiator academies happening for the benefit of a bored Cleopatra. Fallon and her friends battle the Amazons, ultimately winning the reenactment and achieving the crowds appr...

    ?But even if we?re too late for rescue, we?ll still be right on time for revenge.? The first book wasn?t so good in my opinion, but, the author did a better job with the sequel. This was more interesting than the first book, bloody and full of action and adventure, rituals. ...

    I really enjoyed The Valiant when I read it earlier this year and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of The Defiant from Razorbill, even though it was past publication date which I am very grateful for! This has not effected my rating and all opinions are my own. ?But eve...

    4.5 stars So I just spend the entire day on a financial report for this crazy project I'm working on for uni, and it was almost fun to do but because I listened to this audiobook. It was so addicting, I read it in one sitting. I've been waiting for this book for a year, and now I'll...

    The Valiant was one of my favorite new YA books of 2017. The concept was fascinating imagining the existence of a training school devoted to making women into gladiatrices. It felt fresh with high stakes. Any predictable moments didn't bother me because the story held its own. I'm beg...

    If you liked The Valiant then this is a really enjoyable sequel! It delivered on pretty much every aspect I wanted to see. A lot of it builds off the last book and what Fallon saw towards the end, so I don't want to spoil that. Otherwise, there's a rebellion brewing here and Fallon...
