    MORITURI Slow Start But Compelling Finish To Spartacus AdventureI’ll admit it the first hundred pages of SPARTACUS MORITURI had me convinced that I was wasting my time After all what makes SPARTACUS – the television program – such a winning experience is the visceral thrill of bloodshed the sweaty bodies thrown back and forth in combat and in sport coupled with some exciting drama besieged with so many duplicitous characters As a viewer you’re shocked by the brutality you’re captivated by the beauties and you’re intrigued by the betrayals SPARTACUS remains a swords’n’sandals soap opera – one based loosely on the events of history – spun with a cinematic flair that elevates even the most mundane happenings to the level of human drama It isn’t hard to see why the STARZ Network jumped at the chance to put in on the air and it isn’t hard to fathom why its cadre of loyal fans might latch on to a series of books based on their favorite charactersAfter author Mark Morris could dispense with introducing his players and situations MORITURI thankfully morphed into a great yarn – one beset with the same elements that make the TV show a sensation So long as you don’t mind action seuences reduced to sometimes wordy sentences and paragraphs you’ll find plenty to like in this guilty pleasure beach readSet during the events of SPARTACUS’s first season “Blood and Sand” MORITURI picks up shortly after the legendary slave is first crowned the Champion of Capua with his defeat of Theokoles Suddenly a new noble comes to town – Hieronymus – and he comes bearing the support of the Roman politician Crassus To everyone’s surprise Hieronymus sets up his own ludus and in his gladiators first outing he decimates the reputation of the House of Solonius Never one to shy away from new challenges Batiatus commits Spartacus and his own league of fighters to a display in the arena but will Hieronymus’s grim spiritual advisor Mantilus and an unexplainable plague spell certain doom for all involved?As stated above I think Morris could’ve gone to greater pains in incorporate his new characters into SPARTACUS’s already very full bodied existence This isn’t to say that his additions aren’t all that interesting; indeed Mantilus is a brilliant creation and there’s a new slave Athenais who serves as a visual reminder of how nefarious some ‘owners’ can be with their property Hieronymus and his gladiators end up serving as mostly stock characters while Crassus is given a bit of new exploration for the purposes of this tale However I felt the set up and introductions went on far too long keeping the reader away from the real heart of the tale that being the legendary slave who will eventually lead a revolt Spartacus is given short shrift in the opening 100 pages or so and that places a bit of a hurdle in front of the reader which doesn’t get rectified until laterStill once the action starts it’s all delivered with a crispness and an attention to detail Morris clearly understands what draws fans to SPARTACUS be it the bloodletting the Bohemian approach to sex and sexuality and the infinite backstabbing All of that Morris gives great exposure elevating the book to the point that it’d be easy to see MORITURI actually having taken place off screen of those elements filmed for Season 1 Rather smartly Morris sets much of the action at a time of upheaval for some of the secondary characters – Crixus is laid up in the infirmary and as such gets little time but still manages to serve a role integral to the conclusion; Ashur is often off performing Batiatus’s bidding – and that presents the author with the chance to really hone in on the still budding friendship between Spartacus and VarroIn fact MORITURI is so strong an installment that I could make a suggestion do just like this Figure out precisely when in the lives of these televised characters that other like minded tales could be spun One could make the case that given Morris’s strengths as a writer there could be some great value in adapting some of the morality plays of the individual episodes into novels as well Certainly there’s enough fodder here for new stories; but – without spoiling it for anyone who hasn’tdoesn’t watch the TV program – not all of these characters will be around forever Making the best of them when they are around could be a tremendous challenge to anyone attempting further franchise novels but if they’re half as good as MORITURI I’d definitely be on board as a regular readerNo it ain’t perfect Parts of MORITURI feel a bit rushed – maybe the author was rushing to make a publication date? – and there are parts that uite frankly felt a bit rote Still it worked As characters Spartacus and his enemies and allies make for some very compelling narratives Once the show vanishes from the airwaves as it must Googled the real Spartacus if you’re inclined for a brief lesson in history I’d be thrilled to see some of these folks get new lives maybe even in novels detailing the greater backstories It may never happen but it wouldn’t hurt if anyone at Titan Books is interestedRECOMMENDED It’s a franchise novel told with the same care and attention given to most franchise efforts and SPARTACUS MORITURI hits all the right notes there’s ample danger intrigue suspicion sex violence and then some to interest at least fans of the STARZ Network Original Series and maybe at best win a few converts I went into it with no expectations and I came out of it definitely pleased definitely sated No it’s not as good as the TV show but it’s a filling substitute all the same If nothing else it’s a respectable way to pass the time while waiting for the program to return for its fourth and final seasonIn the interests of fairness I’m pleased to disclose that the good folks at Titan Books provided me with a reader copy of SPARTACUS MORITURI for the expressed purposes of completing this review

    Spartacus and the rest of his brothers from Batiatus’s ludus suffer from a mysterious mental and physical illness which most believed is caused by dark sorcery But Spartacus knows better than to rely on superstitious follies and seeks to investigate further This book is sort of a spin off to the events following the death of Spartacus’s wife from the first season of Starz’s Spartacus TV series The story started slow moving but it was entertaining just the same Less violent and sexy too I’ve watched the TV series before and I keep hearing the voices of Andy Whitfield though the book cover shows Liam McIntyre Manu Bennett John Hannah and the rest of the actors in this book It was a little nostalgic to be honest

    It took awhile to get going but once it did I enjoyed it very muchA man named Hieronymus arrives in Capua and under the patronage of Marcus Licinius Crassus sets up his own Ludus Soon after the gladiators in both Batiatus' and his rival lanista Solonius' ludi begin experiencing lethargy nightmares and general malaise After Solonius' gladiators are uickly defeated by Hieronymus' lesser trained men and people set eyes on Hieronymus' rather uniue looking attendant Mantilius superstition begins to take hold Is Mantilius a sorcerer there to place curses upon rival gladiators or is there a less otherwordly explanation in play here?The trouble often times with tie in novels is that if they're not written by someone with intimate knowledge of the characters you're sometimes left with beloved characters who behave in non canonical ways I didn't see much if any of that here The author had a good grip on the characters he was writing and I can't recall any events in the book that would directly contradict things that happened on screen I would have liked there have been a bit depth to the few original characters the author added thoughOh and he did a great job with the rather uniue speech patterns the show usedThe mystery itself what exactly was wrong with the gladiators I'd already sussed out but not the actual how so that didn't lessen my enjoyment of the storyThis book like the other Spartacus tie in novel is set in the period after Spartacus and Crixus have defeated Theokoles and Crixus is healing from his wounds and thus not as big a factor in the book as I'd have liked Though he did play a part in the solving of the mystery he still felt like a side character to meI'm sad there's only been two tie in novels released I'd love to read

    Very well written and set to mind an episode of Spartacus that we might have missed Truly this was written by a fan of both DeKnight's work as well as the beloved show that influenced so many

    Not bad story

    In SummaryMorituri is not epic but does provide a glimpse of Capua at its depraved worst with its citizenry vying for wealth and power on the backs of slaves gladiators included Pages abound with the machinations of Batiatus and his rivals and although there are only two major gladiator tournaments the story grips readers in a different way by besetting the city’s fiercest fighters with an enemy they cannot cut or even pinpointThe ReviewSpartacus Morituri is based off the Starz TV series but familiarity with the show is not necessary to read the novel I haven’t watched any TV episodes but the bits of backstory in the narrative were sufficient for me to grasp the larger Spartacus arc What did trip me up was some of the terminology and dialogue It being a Roman period piece Morris uses Roman terms for everything from rooms to gladiator weapons While this should please enthusiasts of that era not all the terms can be figured out from context and the book provides no glossary In addition the characters speak in a kind of dialect For example this interchange takes place before a party between Lucretia and Ilithyia “Gods smile upon husband this day He responds with raised voice in gratitude” “Spirits raise to hear the gods show generous heart” Ilithyia said with a tinkling laugh “But such bleating calls to mind sacrificial pig awaiting slaughter”I assume their speech is meant to reflect Latin sentence structure but it does take some getting used toAs to Morituri’s plot it’s not so much an epic adventure as it is a tale of intrigue The novel begins shortly after Spartacus has defeated Theokoles and become Champion of Capua and Batiatus’ ludus But the focus especially for the first half of the novel is not so much on Spartacus and his fighting prowess but the wheelings and dealings of his owner Batiatus whose household is sliding into debt The new lanista Hieronymus has come to Capua to debut his gladiators the Morituri and once Batiatus learns Hieronymus’ patron is the wealthy Roman nobleman Crassus he’s desperate to curry Crassus’ favor Batiatus comes off as a vulgar politician as he kisses up to his betters often with little finesse; treats his lessers with contempt; and spews profanity within his homeThe intrigue ramps up once Batiatus and Hieronymus agree to a match with Batiatus’ fortunes weighing in the balance A strange malaise falls upon Batiatus’ gladiators affecting not only their bodies but their minds Nightmares afflict them and the stable scenes are less about men training though there are a couple passages about Spartacus perfecting his new two sword techniue and about the discord caused by their hallucinations Making things worse is Mantilus Hieronymus’ gladiator trainer who exudes a demonic aura With the ludus in disarray and the Morituri’s white eyed tattooed overseer lurking around rumors of witchcraft run rampant terrifying gladiators and Batiatus’ household alikeSpartacus though is the notable exception Despite his own eerie visions and sapped strength he refuses to believe Mantilus possesses magic powers with seemingly superhuman stubbornness Therefore it is not surprising that he is the one with enough presence of mind to figure out the truth behind Mantilus and the plague affecting the ludusOnce the mystery is solved what follows is a predictable plot for revenge It is interesting though to see Solonius Batiatus Oenamus and Spartacus working together the lanistae to crush the one who’d nearly ruined them and the gladiators to avenge their fallen brethren The three way match in which they exact retribution turns the spotlight on the gladiator arena with intense if harrowingly graphic fight descriptions For those wanting to read about blood on the sand they will find it in those pagesBy the way the cover blurb advertises Morituri as a “tale of blood sex and politics” There’s definitely politics with all of Capua trying to cozy up to nobleman Crassus Morituri also delivers blood though much of it comes in the form of nightmares and gladiators having crazed episodes in their stable Regarding sex there is sex aplenty with an orgy scene and Batiatus availing himself of his slaves but it never comes into play as a tool for love or power It just serves as part of the tawdry Roman background

    Now you walk into any bookstore and you can most likely find half a dozen books fiction and non fiction alike that focus on the historical figure of Spartacus But this particular series is actually based on the Starz television series of the same nameHere in the second installment we are once again introduced to the whole motley crew that lives in the ludus of a Roman named Batiatus and things are not well in this houseA new important merchant arrives in their hometown of Capua accompanied by a dark twisted little man many believe to be a sorcerer And once the merchant announces plans of founding his own ludus in the city backed by the money of a important Roman general all the other gladiators in the other ludus' of Capua start becoming ill They are inexplicably weak have nightmares hallucinations and all other sorts of things And of course everyone blames sorcery and the dark strange little man they believe is behind it allBut as with most things in Rome the supernatural can be explained naturally and it is Spartacus himself that figures out the puzzle and saves the day Lives are won revenge is had and in the end everyone still alive is very very happyI love the television series Its bloody fun gritty and dirty And we all need that once in a while Its full of half naked men Roman gladiators all fighting each other to the death living learning and in some cases loving in a ludus of ancient Rome Totally not PG this seriesSo imagine this series All the blood guts cursing and sex that goes on in it Now try imagining what it would be like in book form Basically you get 300 pages of script set in book form which I think is what I enjoy most about the series The events that happen in the books take place in and around the cannon of the series but you can easily imagine them dedicating an episode or two to this particular story The descriptions are vivid the characters are transferred through the mediums very well and overall its a wonderful series for any fans of the show

    “Spartacus Morituri” by Mark Morris published by Titan BooksCategory – Historical FictionThis book is fiction than history but gives a fairly accurate look into life during the height of the Roman Empire Spartacus now a Gladiator is fighting in the stable of BatiatusGladiators when entering an arena for a fight until death looked up at the nobility and proclaimed “Morituri Te Salutamus” “We Who Are About To Die Salute You”Batiatus who lives in Capua has the best stable of Gladiators that is anchored by Spartacus A Greek Hieronymus has come into Capua and set up his own stable of Gladiators to rival Batiatus Hieronymus convinces Solonius who has the second best stable in Capua to pit his Gladiators against his Although Solonius’s men should win hands down they are sluggish and uncoordinated and lose all matches Hieronymus then convinces both Solonius and Batiatus to a three way match and if Hieronymus wins Batiatus will forfeit everything he has to HieronymusBatiatus and Spartacus must find a way to defeat Hieronymus and this includes finding out why the Gladiators opposing Hieronymus seem to be lethargic at bestA good story for those interested in this period of time and for those who like Gladiator stories Kudos to Mark Morris for using terminology that was prevalent during this time Readers should be cautioned that the book contains strong sexual content and language

    This story is set at the same time of the other Spartacus tie in novel Sword and Ashes by JMClements Spartacus and Crixus have defeated Theokolus and Crixus is in the medicus recovering from his wounds Batiatus and Spartacus the bringer of rain faces a new challenge from a Greek merchant wishing to create his own ludus and win the games using underhand measures If you like the TV series you will get a kick out of this stand alone story All your favourite characters from the TV series are in the story and Crassus himself makes an early appearance which is fine given he does not actually interact with Spartacus much so no spoilers with War Of The Damned series This novel is lot fun than Sword and Ashes and has some great dialogue and fight scenes I enjoyed it as much as any episode from the TV series and if you looking for Spartacus fun and classic Batiatus phrases than look no furtherThe book states Book 1 of Spartacus so hopefully there will be

    The GoodThis book is set around season 1•Seeing stuff from season 1 that does not exist past that season•Captures the characters voice and their motivations well which is what you want from a novelization Seeing words that I could see coming out of the characters mouth made me ultimately decide to buy this book•Diverse cast just like the show•Hits on the important povs most of the people who have a point of view in the show make an appearance•Intrigue like the show•Roman mythologyThe Bad•Repetitive feels like the story got stuck in a loop for a large amount of the novel and only got out of it in the last 100 or so pagesThe MehI uestion if the sexual violence shown in the book was handled well Then again does the show handle sexual violence well?also did a novelization tbr on my blog
