WoW: The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

The Valiant

     The youngest daughter of a proud Celtic king, Fallon has always lived in the shadow of her older sister Sorcha's legendary reputation as a warrior. But when Fallon was a young child, the armies of Julius Caesar invaded the island of Britain and her beloved older sister was killed in battle.
     On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is excited to follow in her sister's footsteps and earn her rightful place in her father's royal war band. But she never gets the chance. Instead, Fallon is captured by a band of ruthless brigands who sell her to an exclusive training school for female gladiators—and its most influential patron is none other than Julius Caesar himself. In a cruel twist of fate, Fallon's worst enemy, the man who destroyed her family, might be her only hope of survival.
     Now, Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries, chilling threats and the dangerous attention of Caesar himself to survive the deadly fights that take place both in and out of the arena—and claim her place in history among the Valiant.

Why I'm Waiting: I saw one part of this synopsis and was immediately sold. Any guess on what part?.............. If you guessed "training school for female gladiators" you'd be right! And then I saw that Julius Caesar was making an appearance as well?! OMG I need this! I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction, but anything that twists and turns it is great! This seems like it will be one of those stories! 

Will you be waiting on this with me? 
What are you waiting on this week?!
