    Summary

    Alexandria Silvestre [Latin for Woods] was born in the small city of Polis raised by her parents Maximus and Becca Silvestre.

    Lexa had taken an extensive interest in her father's profession at a young age and started training with the fierce warriors. Female Gladiators were people that were of an extreme rarity but they fought in the Colosseum with men as their equals.

    When a civil war struck, Lexa was prepared to fight alongside her brothers and sisters but what she was not prepared for was to lose her family and lover Costia.

    After the war, she decided that Polis had nothing more to offer her now that she had lost everything she had ever loved. In her grief, Lexa and her best friend Octavia set out to Rome to fight in the Colosseum and Lexa feels if death befalls her, it would not matter.

    The Emperor meets Alexandria personally after a match in the arena, and it seems like the perfect opportunity to set Alexandria in his daughter Clarke Gryphem's personal guard.

    However, upon meeting Clarke Gryphem, Lexa is absolutely blown away by her Empress' beauty. She continues to fight in the Colosseum to free her mind of her demons, but her Empress clouds her mind and she now fights to live.

    Summary

    Princess Nile of the Kingdom of the Crimson Mountains in North Africa was raised to be Queen. For the tribes united under her ancestral Freeman banner over 300 years ago upon the Roman invasion of the continent during the Second Punic War against Carthage. Carthage's citizens either murdered or sold into slavery upon its destruction 50 years later, its annexation into the Roman Republic proved the end of a civilization. Yet their fall allowed the unified Freeman Kingdom to flourish. Especially as allied with their neighboring Romans to mutual benefit.

    When her father, the King, dies unexpectedly, Nile finds her birthright passed down to her 10 year-old brother. For the greedy people of Palatine Hill bear no respect for female rulers. With a child king on the throne and Nile as regent, the Freeman are in a precarious position against the might of the Romans at their border.

    A messenger sent from Rome to the Kingdom weeks after her brother’s coronation doesn’t bode well either. Along with the arrival of General Sebastianus and a host of armed soldiers. Whatever news these invaders bring, Princess Nile’s life is about to take a turn. Though for better or worse, she cannot know.

    Summary

    “Where did you say you learned how to do this?”

    Grantaire shrugs. “Old family secret.”

    This seems to confirm Enjolras’ suspicions, whatever they are. His entire body is tensed, his fingers curled tightly onto the edge of Grantaire’s small table. His eyes dart to the door of the cabin, like he’s trying to judge how fast he could run out of the room if needs be. Grantaire continues to watch him in silence.

    Eventually, he asks, “Who are you?”

    ***

    Grantaire has lived alone on his island for 250 years. One day, Enjolras appears during a storm.

    Summary

    ‘What the fuck are you doing here?’ Antonio all but hissed, and felt conscious of how he was carelessly sprawled on the bed, almost naked, then internally scolded himself for that exact feeling.

    ‘Aurelius told me I had to switch rooms because I would be staying with my partner until our next fight,’ Joseph replied, his hazel still a bit wide, mouth a bit slack, ‘He didn’t tell me it was you.’

    Antonio’s blood turned to scorching ice, and he realised his breathing had stopped but he didn’t remember when, anger took too much space in his lungs. He shut his eyes for a little longer than a blink. ‘Are you serious?’ he flatly asked, desperately clinging to shreds of hope.

    ‘Y-yeah.’

    Antonio took a big breath and harshly rubbed his fingers over the sides of his nose, his eyebrows, pressed them against his closed eyelids until he saw patterns like Persian rugs. He felt the urge to scream. ‘Okay.’

    Summary

    Oh, Apollo had craved, and desired, and had wanted for what felt like eons all for this glorious prince. What would be a blink of an eye to a God had been pure torture, and no matter how many times he attempted to paint the sunset the same shade of the prince's lips, the intention to court Perseus could not be truly seen.

    It is time for Apollo to claim the youth as his own.

    Summary

    The trip that Lily Evans expects to go on is the annual pre-dissertation jaunt to Athens with the rest of her Classical Civilizations PhD program. The trip she does not expect to go on is to 479 BCE, right on the cusp of one of the most important battles in the Greco-Persian war. Now, she has to navigate antiquity as she tries to find her way back to the 21st Century, God—or gods—help her.

    James wants to win this war. No, James needs to win this war. He is a man of honor and duty, and even if it means dying a gruesome, bloody death, he will go down in history as one of Athens's great warriors. He will suffer no distractions; not even beautiful ones who speak strangely and refuse to listen to his orders.
