    "I had watched the tv series Spartacus, so I was really interested to read this book. There was a lot of sex in the book, but not so much you would be embarassed reading it or want to put it down. I was actually rooting for the two to get together. It is a great book, I really loved the history, and the politics of the Roman times. "

    "I really like history, so I was interested in the mix of Roman and Celtic history in this book. Unfortunately that's the only part I really liked. The characters were flat, and the writing was kind of tedious. There's some potential in it, but I would recommend another romance novel."

    "This book definitely shows how brutal life was in this era. The typical Roman slave was not treated well, and the same is true in Mark of the Gladiator. However, love can conquer brutality, as we so wonderfully see in this book."

    "I am all about the erotic novels, and this one looks steamy in general. The star rating and user reviews are generally positive. One thing I would have mentioned in the solution is that it is a homosexual errotic novel. From the summary of the book however, I would be down to read it for sure!"

    "The decent reviews suggested that this book is particularly short. Falling short is one thing, a short book is another thing, and I guess a lot of people actually tend to get confused with the two. I would not consider this one of the best, but this book is not something I would avoid since short books actually appeal to me."

    "Warrior Prince really has everything - romance, desire, adversity, betrayal, and death. It is a roller coaster ride of emotions from start to finish. The book is well written with interesting characters and a compelling story. It isn't the most original or memorable book you will ever read, but it is enjoyable nonetheless. "
