This review is from: The Gladiator's Master (Kindle Edition)
Well, that's my adventure with indipendant publishing done.
Should fanfiction be published, anyway?
Because that's what this is - a STARZ' "Spartacus" slashfic, with some names changed.
As far as I'm concerned, fanfiction belongs on AO3.
The plot is nonexistant, the characters a cookie-cutter, wish-fulfillment cliches (especially Caelius, who's a glorified self-insert Mary Sue).
For someone who's never heard of the wonderful world of fanfiction, this book might sound refreshing (much like that "50 Shades..." atrocity) but for one who's been reading m/m slashfics for the last 14 years, this suffers in comparison to some wonderful stories out there, in various fandoms.
