    1. Oh boy.This was the mother of all plot twists Like seriouslyI feel a tiny bit betrayed, because I had some expectations for this story that turned out COMPLETELY different, but judging this story objectively, it is actually very good and I should have read the entry properly, I know P.My one and only complaint should be The lack of sex I ve actually never read a m m novel without ANY sex I understand why the author avoided it, but still.I mean, a gladiator story in Ancient Rome or Pompeji, in th [...]


    2. I m not sure what to say about this book I was hesitant to start because the set up didn t appeal much to me On the other hand, L.A Witt generally has the ability to draw me in, no matter what she is writing about.So I started reading and as anticipated, I liked it Saevius is a good MC, a bit jaded, street smart in his surroundings and honorable And soon enough I started to like Drusus who obviously was the other man in the hopefully soon to come couple And the built up for the romance was slowo [...]


    3. I really enjoyed this book for the story it told It was unique I think to both M M romance and general period story telling I enjoy books set in ancient Rome straight historical to erotic stories.If a reader is looking for a book with lots of really hot sex scenes this book isn t going to ring that bell, but I am a reader far interested in the story telling than hot sex I like hot sex, but I want the hot sex to fit in the context of a good story.This story also goes in an interesting direction [...]


    4. Honestly I wished I had chosen another book as my first read in 2017 Don t get me wrong, this is not a bad book, actually it is quite good and I was definitely hooked Saevius is a slave and ex gladiator who is brought to Pompeii to serve his new master Calvus as a bodyguard But then he is sent to train with the gladiators again with the purpose to spy on his fellow gladiators who might be involved with his masters wife Between all chairs things get even worse when the master of the ludus Drusus [...]


    5. Good God, this book This book I adore L.A Witt for having written this book.First off, this isn t an erotic romance, though the author does write erotic romances This is historical fiction with light romantic elements and no sex So set you expectations If you re looking for bow chicka bow wow, there isn t any There s some kissing, but that s it.What you get instead is a fantastic novel full of intrigue, action, and a darn fine fine tale.The writing is gripping I generally don t like books writte [...]



    6. 4.4 stars What a wonderful, enjoyable story In a departure from the style or topics of her previous books LA Witt takes on historical Pompeii, gladiator style Although there is romance, this book is much better classified as general gay fiction Saevius is a veteran gladiator who has known nothing but slavery A few fights from obtaining freedom, he is sold to a politician in another city as a bodyguard Unfortunately, when he gets there, he finds that his true purpose is not to serve as a bodyguar [...]


    7. Whoa Brilliant.Read a few reviews and am floored by how many reviewers don t consider this a true romance It s a quiet book, for sure, and it takes a while to build up steam though the second half has very good pace and tension IMO , but if this isn t romance, then the romance genre has strayed from the original sense of the word beyond any recognition For me this is a romance in the most classical sense of the word.


    8. Amo la Witt Gallagher perch riesce ad essere versatile e convincente in tutte le salse, dal romance MM d azione a una novella d ambientazione storica come questa Mi dispiace soltanto per la brevit del finale perch s , ne volevo ancora , ma mi ha tenuto incollata dall inizio alla fine, in un crescendo continuo di tensione.




    9. 3 1 2 Dominus Saevius is a gladiator just three fights away from freedom when he is sold as a bodyguard to Pompeian politician Junius Calvus Laurea Saevius is not thrilled with this turn of events but is relieved he will no longer have to risk his life in the arena Or so he thinks He soon learns he was purchased under false pretenses when he is thrust into a far dangerous situation Calvus thinks his wife is cheating on him with a gladiator and he won t stand for it He orders Saevius to infiltra [...]


    10. Saevius is a veteran of the arena, but as a gladiator, he s not master of his own fate When he s sold to a Pompeiian politician to work as a bodyguard, he s cautiously optimistic about his future But this good fortune doesn t last, as he soon finds out that Calvus is playing a dangerous game, which might have fatal consequences for Saevius Caught up in the sticky web of intrigue, Saevius is tasked to discover with which gladiator Calvus s wife is having an affair.Saevius now finds himself acting [...]


    11. It s been a while since I read a good gladiator book, except The Left Hand of Calvus is that and so much It s intense, suspenseful, has twists and turns than I was able to keep track of, and it s full of intrigue, betrayal, and backstabbing Set in Pompeii around 78 AD about a year before its destruction , it is the tale of a former gladiator, Saevius, who thinks a powerful politician has hired him as a bodyguard, stopping him from attaining his freedom after years in the area Saevius faces sub [...]


    12. The Left Hand of Calvus is a wonderful masterpiece by L.A Witt and the first book in the Warriors of Rome collection I was intrigued and held captive from the first page The story takes place in ancient Rome when Saevius, a gladiator, is exploited by his current master, Laurea Calvus to spy on his wife, the Lady Verina Laurea believes that she is having an affair with someone under the house of Drusus, a powerful lanista, and Laurea want his name.As a fan of L.A Witt and mystery and intrigue, th [...]


    13. In Italia, conosciamo meglio questa prolifica autrice con l altro suo nome, ovvero L.A Witt, ma sono la stessa persona.Stavolta la signora Witt ci offre un bellissimo romanzo storico, ambientato nell Antica Roma, nel I secolo d.C Ho davvero apprezzato che l accuratezza storica fosse impeccabile usi, costumi, stralci di vita quotidiana viene tutto descritto con realismo e precisione, dandoci uno spaccato verosimile dell epoca Probabilmente, per noi italiani normale, visto che studiamo a scuola la [...]


    14. bianchianita1971 2Ho iniziato questo romanzo non sapendo bene cosa aspettarmi il fatto che una delle mie autrici preferite, L.A Witt, usasse un altro nome per scriverlo mi faceva pensare che fosse in qualche modo diverso da ci che sono abituata a leggere di suo Beh, sappiate solo che si in qualche modo diverso , ma stato una lettura sorprendente come non mi accadeva da tempo Saevius un ex gladiatore che era ad un passo dal conquistarsi l agognata libert viene invece venduto al viscido Calvus, e [...]


    15. This was surprisingly fun, and if all the rest of the books in the Warriors of Rome collection are as good, I will be pleased Our hero Saevius is basically a spy gladiator in Pompeii How does that work Well, he is bought by a man named Calvus and told to go undercover at the gladiator school of this famous trainer Drusus, because Calvus thinks one of Drusus gladiators is sleeping with his wife Because that would be far too simple as is, Saevius ends up befriending Drusus and becoming a double ag [...]


    16. This was a bit strange The story felt kind of convoluted to me, and the big surprising revelation Very obvious from the hints from the ever present breast plate to the piercing blue eyes as a family trait I also felt a bit strange about the whole who is into whom and is that really what you want I didn t really understand the attraction and that had nothing to do with the revelation Also it felt a bit as if gladiators were working as whores than anything else And according to that book all Roma [...]


    17. One of the best books I ve read this year and definitely one of my favorite historical novels in general I m already tempted to re read it The book is very well written, and as someone who enjoys historical novels, I can see the author did a lot of research to realistically portray the period The main character is relatable, and I was sucked into his world from the beginning Trapped in an impossible situation, Saevius needs to maneuver the intrigues he s forced to participate in The plot is very [...]


    18. This was a short quick read that I liked I don t normally read books set in Roman times and I was surprised that I liked this one Former gladiator Saevius is certain Fortune s smiling on him when a Pompeiian politician buys him to be his bodyguard That is until his new master, Laurea Calvus, orders Saevius to discover the gladiator with whom his wife Verina is having a sordid affair Calvus suspects that that she maybe seeing Drusus, the lanista Saevius is sent to spy on Drusus and the rest of Dr [...]



    19. Well written Good period Enjoyed.Took off a star because of a plot twist I didn t believe in and that wasn t satisfying to me personally your mileage may vary.



    20. 3.75 I do not read many historicals, but if I did ancient Roman Empire would attract me The author creates the feel of living in Pompeii, and the world of the gladiator very well I could taste the sand and sweat, feel every bruise, of which there were many The story is quite involved, an intelligent device to draw the reader even further into this world of ancient history Having said this, I found the world building and historical detail overwhelmed the story a little.The novel revolves around S [...]


    21. Gladiators Fights Loyalty More gladiators What s not to love about this book I knew the oh so secret plottwist beforehand and it made me probably notice all the hints compared to an unspoilered is that even a word reader The big reveal was a little hasty, but I have to admire the authors talent to capture Saevius thoughts That few moments, rapidly changing pronouns and then settling for the truth, as it had been before and still was I can just imagine what it must have been back then, without an [...]


    22. 5 5 starsThis is a copy from my non pen name The actual review is here review show I don t double rate Good God, this book This book I adore L.A Witt for having written this book.First off, this isn t an erotic romance, though the author does write erotic romances This is historical fiction with light romantic elements and no sex So set you expectations If you re looking for bow chicka bow wow, there isn t any There s some kissing, but that s it.What you get instead is a fantastic novel full of [...]


    23. I m a huge fan of LA Witt, so the 5 star rating should come as no surprise, but the book itself is full of them.While I felt the mystery suspense aspect of the book was not executed with the same mastery as the romantic aspect of the plot, I did find it deftly done I loved both the main characters and found Witt s portrayal of Pompeii very colorful and believable I couldn t say whether it was authentic, as I know very little of that period of history It FELT authentic, however, which is good eno [...]


    24. I really enjoyed this one, but I would have wished for on the romance front While it had romantic elements, it really wasn t a romance novel so much We see Savius and Drusus attraction and growing trust, but while love must include respect, respect doesn t always lead to love And the twist threw me quite a bit It wouldn t have been as good of a story had I known what was coming, but on the other hand if I d been expecting it I wouldn t have been thrown out of the story so much.At any rate, I m [...]


    25. I feel bad giving this book only 3 stars because right up to the big reveal I was totally invested in it Up until that point I was completely absorbed in the very well written story, the authentic feel of the period and place, and the interesting, complex characters Maybe my sense of let down and disappointment at the denouement was all the keener because of that.
