Potential TBR Pile Addition

Ooh. Now this sounds like it'll be an interesting book. Debut fiction alert from PM:

Kate Quinn's BLOOD FOR BLOOD, an epic novel of ancient Rome, pitched as Bernard Cornwell for women, in which a slave girl falls in love with the greatest gladiator of the time, all culminating in a conspiracy to assassinate the Emperor Domitian, to Jackie Cantor at Berkley, for publication in 2010, by Pam Strickler (NA).
A Romantic Historical perhaps? I'm definitely keen to know more.

I just hope I remember it by 2010 though. :-(
