Captured by slavers. Condemned to the Battle Pits. Reaper fought for life, freedom and a True Name and in winning them brought an empire to its knees.
Gladiator is Reaper Hawk’s tale of his Name-Quest. Searching for missing friends, he unwittingly became involved in Imperial politics. Condemned to the battle pits, he kept searching for answers, and, in regaining his freedom, uncovered a plot that brought an empire to its knees.
Reaper’s plan was simple, use his Name-Quest to solve the mystery surrounding the disappearance of his friends. Captured by slavers and forced to fight for their enrichment, he thought he had his answer until he found himself called to answer for the royal blood he had unwittingly spilled. Condemned to die in the battle pits, he won a place as a gladiator, but life in the battle pits, despite the rules that govern the fights, isn’t safe when someone with money and power wants you dead. Reaper was forced to fight for his life and for the chance of freedom against the machinations of hidden enemies. And every day he’s stuck fighting in the pits, the vengeful clans draw closer, and the threat to the city, and all the answers it holds, grows greater.
Gladiator is the first book in the Lysandrian Tales series, by author DJ Chamberlain. It’s a stand-alone sword and sorcery novella after the flavour of Conan the Barbarian and Thongor. If you like Robert E. Howard, Lin Carter, Michael Moorcock, and Steven Brust, then you’ll love Gladiator. It’s a fast-paced sword and sorcery story full of duels and dark heroism and just a dash of irreverent humour.
