In the Earth of the future, the privileged few build their wealth on the backs of slaves who are neither man nor beast. Those with gold to spare spend it at the Arena. Betting on the Warrior Shifters is the pastime of the elite. Captured for the sport of the masses, they have no choice but to fight or be killed.

Miranda is the daughter of one of the cruelest Gladiator owners in all the land, still her heart remains pure. She only wants to help heal those who have no one to look after them. The last thing she bargained for was catching the eye of the fiercest warrior of all- Brandwulr.

To Brandwulfr, the innocent Miranda is a way out of this godforsaken realm, a way to get home. He doesn’t need to be attracted to the silly little human. He shouldn't want her. Yet there is something in the softness of her touch that sets his blood on fire and awakens the wolf within.

I love author Marteeka Karland, I just love her writing. Amazing, hot, intense, unforgettable.   Gladiator Wolf starts out the Gladiator series, and please write faster on this series cause this girl wants more!! Okay first we have a hotter than sin gladiator wolf, Brand. He is being held as a  slave forced to fight in the gladiator games. He is completely alpha and intense. He is a strong man who you do not want to cross or have to fight. He will win.  The collar on this throat prevents him from shifting to get away.
Miranda is the daughter of the man holding Brand. She is sweet, brave as all heck, and kind. She helps the slaves, saves many of their lives in the process. If it were up to her she would free them all.  But her kindness will soon lead her on an adventure of a lifetime.
She ends up in Brand’s world finding out what it is like to be hated, feared, and cruelly judged.  Can Brand change how he feels to make others accept her will determine if these two can make it as mates, because that is what they end up being is mates. But their two worlds might just keep these two apart.
I loved how Ms Karland brings such great characters and makes me love them. Brand is so strong but he needs to learn to trust and believe in love again. Miranda is the perfect person to teach it to him if he can just let her in long enough to feel it.  If you follow my reviews you know I am huge werewolf fan, so yeah that was a draw for me here too, but his total personality will keep you wanting to read more.
I also like Miranda she is no shrinking violet she is strong, but soft when she needs to be.  I think anyone who is a fan of action, adventure, and true love must read this book asap, you will not be disappoint, I know I am not.  More, more, more!
