Gods and Gladiators

When the Olympian Gods contest that the Romans aren’t nearly as mighty as they think they are, Ares, the God of War, is the first one to prove it by spending a month as a Roman. Ares arrives in Rome as a Gladiator, thrilled to have a human body in which to kick some ass. His first chance at Gladiator glory is to reenact the slaughter of the Sabines but when Ares spots a beautiful slave with eyes blazing with courage, he refuses to tear through the defenseless prisoners.

    I was unsure about reading a book about gladiators but because I’m a huge fan of Jaye Shields I decided to give it a try. Shields does not disappoint, the action is fast paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The romance between Ares and Eirana is hot and exciting from the very start you can feel the love and lust they have for each other.
    I wouldn’t mind another book to find out more about Eiranas brother, I like his character. I will be looking forward to more books from Jaye Shields.

    The only reason it’s not a 5 star read is because I wished it had been longer. Great Story!

    The gods on Olympus are unhappy that the humans in the Roman realm have stopped honoring them with worship and celebration so when Eris, the goddess of Chaos offers up a game, Ares, the god of War takes up her challenge to spend one month among the humans to get them to once more worship the gods as they deserve.

    Ares descends in human form to battle in the Coliseum, only once there, he discovers more than the Romans depravities of killing helpless women and children, he discovers love.

    Eirana, a Gaul prisoner of the Romans strives to survive life beneath the deadly arena, but when a Roman gladiator named Ares saves her life and the lives of the other women, she discovers more than a hero. She encounters a god and falls in love.

    GODS AND GLADIATORS by Jaye Shields is an extraordinary journey through time to a place of danger, helplessness, and brutal savagery. A well-written story of love that grows amidst action-filled scenes that expertly conjure amazing images of battle and destruction. The battles come to life before your very eyes, rather than just on the pages of a book. Jaye creates a wonderful romance between a warrior who has only known death, and an innocent woman who has witnessed more death than she should ever in her lifetime. Neither expects to survive yet they surrender their hearts and their bodies to each other at a time when only death may be the final outcome.

    I highly recommend this wonderful novella from the author who brought you the thrilling paranormal romances, the Immortals in Alameda Trilogy and the erotic Sex Demon Trilogy. If you love the ancient world, mythology, and romance then you must read GODS AND GLADIATORS by Jaye Shields. I watched this story grow and refine as I assisted her in editing but it’s Jaye, and Jaye alone, that brought Ares and Eirana’s story to life.

    ***Edited the original copy but my honest and unscripted review is my own. I did purchase an Amazon copy.

    Omigosh!!! I was so excited when I saw Jaye Shields had a new book out. I bought it and never put it down!!! Gods and Gladiators is about love, compassion, humanity and courage in the most hellish of circumstances. I really loved the idea of Ares, the God of War, coming to earth as a human and learning the strength and beauty that lies in these most wonderful of human traits. It is really a story for our times even though it is set in the past. You will be awed and inspired by Ares and Eirana, the slave girl who is Ares equal in heart and courage. This is a fast paced, amazingly descriptive journey into Roman times. You feel like you are there with the slaves, the gladiators and the Romans in the Coliseum. It takes you from horrifying despair to hope, love and yes…..even lust!!! Another character, the child Camilla, will also be one of your favorites. I don’t want to give away too much. It is only 99 cents on Amazon. You cannot get more enjoyment and escape for 99 cents anywhere. Jaye, if you read this…PLEASE MAKE THIS A FULL LENGTH BOOK…..write a sequel or a screenplay!!!! I WANT MORE!!!! The best writing yet from Jaye Shields!!! Thanks. Enjoy all you other lucky readers!!!!!
