"The Spartan Slave" will be released next month !

Finally, my full length novel is set to be released next month by the publishers. You can access their site at :

This novel, as my earlier post explains, is about a Spartan warrior, descended from the great King of Sparta, Leonidas and bearing his name too.

However, things are not always what they seem and the great warrior's past and ancestry are shrouded in mystery, something which his parents refuse to explain. Instead, they urge him on a journey of self-discovery, to find out who he really is, by sending him to a mysterious kingdom in the East.

This kingdom is ancient beyond belief and is centered around the worship of the Earth Mother, or the Queen Mother, as she is known throughout this kingdom. Sensual, exotic and erotic beyond belief, the Queen Mother symbolizes the living Earth herself, giving herself and her bountiful talents to her people, who not only revere her but also look to her for guidance in every aspect of their lives.

Leonidas, our hero, has lived a life of privilege, as the chief's son and future heir to the small domain that they have preserved in the mountains of Macedonia. Powerful, strong beyond measure, with fighting skills that can defeat a horde of warriors, he is reduced to helplessness and finds himself in a position that he cannot retreat from, as he is rendered powerless by something which no man has any defense against - the power of love.

Enraptured by the beauty of the Queen Mother's daughter, the lovely Zarira, Leonidas has to choose between her and claiming his rightful heritage, once he accomplishes what seems like a simple ambassadorial mission when he visits this mysterious kingdom on the express command and wish of his father.

The only way he can possess her is not as her rightful husband, as she is already promised to someone else, but as her body slave.

Will the proud young man forgo everything for the sake of love? Will he renounce his life of privilege and spend the rest of his life as a mere slave? How will he ever keep the sacred promise he made to his father that he would fulfill his mission and return with gold and warriors, to help their fight against Rome? Is he doomed to stay in the mysterious kingdom forever as a slave and will he never return to Macedonia again?

Find out by reading my full length novel, which is about love, mystery, exotic practices in strange land and full of surprises - entertaining as well as exciting.

At the end of this work, the story doesn't really end but will be pursued years later in a sequel titled "The Roman Slave", which has also been accepted for publication (release date will be announced later).

Hi Paz,

Thanks for your comments... I do hope you enjoy this work. It is a little scandalous and has some interesting twists and turns which add to the suspense of the novel, a fact noted by the reviewers as well.
