    1. This review is also available on Cornerfolds!So I am a HUGE Spartacus fan. I'm rewatching it now for the third time and, let me tell you, I'm still pretty devastated that it's over. When I found out there were a couple novels that went along with the series, I was thrilled! The first one, Swords and Ashes, is set between episodes 1x07 and 1x08, and really went out of its way to explain a few things.The book begins with Batiatus, Lucretia, Ilithyia, Spartacus, Varro, and Barca heading to the home [...]

    2. When I happened upon this first novel related to the "Spartacus" series running on Starz, I was taken aback. How exactly was a series known for its stylized visuals and narrative excess going to translate into a novel? It would be all too easy to tell a conventional, watered-down tale in the "Spartacus" universe, especially if the final product was meant to appeal to a more general audience. Yet, I was intrigued, and decided to give it a go.I was pleasantly surprised. Not only is the dark and gr [...]

    3. Detaylı İnceleme İçin: bookowski101/2014Evet, biliyoruz ki bazı efsaneler kanla yazılırM.Ö. 71 yılda Roma'dayız. Batiatus Hane'sinin en güçlü gladyatörü, Capua Şampiyonu Spartaküs ve diğer gladyatörler, köleleri tarafından vahşice öldürülen Pelorus Hane'sinin sahibi Pelorus'u onurlandırmak için yapılan arena gösterilerine giderler. Pek tabii ki Marcus Gaius Glaber'in eşi Ilithya da, Batiatus'un eşi Lucretia da bu macera da yerini alacaktır. Ama asıl oyun Pelorus [...]

    4. Approaching this book, I was a little skeptical because it was based off a TV show. I was very surprised about how good it really was from beginning to end. The novel stays true to the atmosphere and flow of the show. It takes place in the first season of the show and tells a story that adds more understanding to events that happened on screen. It’s all here; the dialect of each character’s personality and speech, violence & gore, sexual scenes, complex betrayals, etc. I really like the [...]

    5. Diziyi izleyenlere hiçbir şekilde zorluk ve yabancılık çektirmeyecek şekilde ilerleyen, gayet de akıcı bir hikaye olmuş. Aynı zamanda yeni baskısı da yapılacaksa kesinlikle bir kez daha redaktörün elinden geçmesi gereken kitap.

    6. Wer auch nur die geringste historische Korrektheit sucht, ist hier noch mehr fehl am Platz, als bei der Serie, auf der der Roman basiert. Kenner der Blood and Sand-Reihe werden allerdings wohl nichts anderes erwarten, genau so wenig, wie ich es getan habe. Außerdem dürfe es ziemlich schwer sein, eine kleine Nebengeschichte, die zu der Zeit spielt, als Spartacus noch Gladiator des Ludus Batiatus war, und die nicht in der Serie gedeckt wurde, auf historischen Ereignissen basieren zu lassen.Grund [...]

    7. I had mixed expectations going into this one as it is based on the series on Starz and takes place in the middle of Season One. I enjoy the series, but it is somewhat over-the-top, so how was that going to translate to the written word? Actually, that wasn't a problem and the stilted language actually helped me to visualize the characters as I could picture the actors saying their lines and at times it had me chuckling; I mean who doesn't enjoy using the occasional expletive, "Jupiter's Cock!"Th [...]

    8. This wasn't too bad. I wouldn't have named the antagonist Verres when one of the protagonists is named Varro, but that may just be me. A bit slow at the start, but it had a decent end, but on the whole in keeping with the series. And that may well be the problem with the book - because it takes place in the midst of the series (after Spartacus summoned the rain but just before Sura arrives), nothing can happen that changes the situation for any of the characters - they cannot leave the story any [...]

    9. What an epic ride into a tale of Spartacus and the many eccentric characters we have come to know on Spartacus:Blood and Sand. This book is centred on the acquisition of the home of a dead lanista by Batiatus, Sparatacus' quest to get reacquainted with his wife Sura as wekl the politics among the many officers of Rome as well as their counterparts. I must say this book is full of intruige, bloodshed and insurmountable humor. I enjoyed it thoroughly from start to finish and love how it took on th [...]

    10. And he rises once more SpartacusI gave Spartacus swords and ashes five stars because I like how detailed it touched on being a slave to be put in bondage and forced to obey or die it's really powerful I love Spartacus tale of trail and tribulations how I can't see how his destiny will shape him into the man who will free the slaves from bondage I also love the way they talk in the time period of Rome and I dislike nothing about this book other than the gay sex between the dudes are more so rape [...]

    11. I wasn't expecting much from this but Clements has actually done a really good job of translating a very visual show into a novel. He is limited because this book takes place during season one but he manages to craft an interesting story that does add something to the saga. I also appreciated Clements' attention to detail with respect to Latin.

    12. Over all, I found the book interesting. As a fan of the show I was glad that I found the book enjoyable. There were scenes in the book that I far liked more than others, however, unlike some books I have read, this was one that I did not read in one sitting as I have done with other books. I'd recommended it to a fan of the show.

    13. Es hat mir gut gefallen aber ich habe einbischen mehr erwartet, aber trotzdem gut :) Man sollte sich erst die 1 Staffel anschauen bevor man das Buch liest, weil das Buch spielt zwischen Episoden. Bin mir aber nicht sicher ob es zwischen 5 und 6 oder 6 und 7 spielt. :) ♥♥♥♥♥♥ Spartacus!! *.*

    14. Uninspired writing and plot, fairly weak characterization, and tie-ins to the TV series that were all too convenient and predictable. The only reasons I give this three stars are the descriptions and gladiatorial action.

    15. ok. but mostly because I loved the series on tv. I don't think I would have picked up this book if it wasn't for the series it is based on.

    16. An original story that had the voice of all the characters of the television series with some added new ones. I always love reading the Latin words and getting a description of them.

    17. A brilliantly placed utterance of the memorable phrase 'JUPITER'S COCK!' (in all-caps, of course) near the end of the book quite literally made me laugh out loud.
