Unbelievable good.

I loved the premise of the story and I was hooked from the beginning. Vivienne Leheny was amazing. She had a specific voice for all the character s and it follows for the next 2 installments. She totally brought the book alive for me. Her performance only enhanced the entire story. I hope she doing the rest of the series! Since I started listening as well as reading many of my favorite books I've come to realize the person preforming can either ruin a story for me or truly make it an extraordinary experience. To my delight Ms. Leheny made it an awesome experience.

If you could sum up Gladiator in three words, what would they be?

I want one.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Raiden. He was so masculine, tough and dangerous but had a very soft spot for her.

Which scene was your favorite?

After being tricked into trying to save her friend, the Gaden crew showed up just in time to save her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and did.

Any additional comments?

This was my first Anna Hacket book but not my last. As soon as I finished this one, I started Warrior. I intend to go through all of her audible books within the next week. We'll see. Also, the narrator was excellent!

Decent Sci-if romance!

This is the first book in a new series by author Anna Hackett and it was a good listen. Basically, the story is about a group of women from Earth who worked on a space station near Jupiter when a bunch of bad aliens came through a temporary wormhole and abducted them. When they come to, they find out they are on a desert planet where they will be expected to perform as gladiators for sport. The heroine is a military woman who does have some training in combat and she does really well in the first contest and attracts the attention of the fiercest gladiator in the arena. The narration was good, but I feel it would have been better performed by a male narrator as well.

Damn that Gladiator!

This is a hidden gem for any romance fan who loves an dominant leads.. I will say that the whole sci-fi part of it is a bit flawed but hey... who am i to judge what other species look like or how technology works beyond earth's realm? Personally, I liked the fast pace of the book. I liked that although there was romance, there was a fascinating story line that came along with it. The book has it all, humor, sex, sadness, revenge and of course HEA,

I haven't listened to Vivienne's narration before and i am glad that I liked her. She is able to give each character a different tone which made this reading more interesting. She isn't the best but she is good.

My recommendation: grab the book if it's on sale. It won't disappoint.

WOW! What a ride!

This is the second series by Anna Hackett that I've started and I love them both. Gladiator has a totally different feel than her Hell Squad series that I can chalk up to the talent of the author and the talented narrators she had reading each series. Gladiator, the first in the Galactic Gladiators series is a syfy adventure romance involving an alien abduction, tough humans and alien hero's to the rescue. As with all of Ms. Hackett's series, the story is action packed with plenty of steamy scenes in between. Vivenne Leheny does an excellent job of bringing the characters with a great talent for voices.
I would definitely recommend this series to anyone.
