Description

“This is the Arena, and here we live to die.” This is the motto of genetically-altered gladiators, the winged humans called Galdoni. Kale, nursed back from the brink of death by students, is given the chance to experience life as a human. When he is captured, he has to use what he learned in the world outside the Academy in order to free the other Galdoni and return to the human girl he loves.

    I read this a year or two ago and still think about this book every once in awhile. It makes me so sad, but sends a greater message about how people change. They can go from broken and heartless to whole and kind it really touched me. I'm currently 15 and this still reverberates with me today
  • Magnificent piece

    A beautifully prepared gory book that is actually also very good mentally. The character setup is amazing I find myself repetitively reading it due to the fact that I'm too lazy to buy the second one anyhow bravo.

    This book was so well made it felt like I was in the scenes itself. Cheree, you did amazing on writing this book. I can't put my feeling or amazement in words but all I could say was that I felt like I was Kale, when I was reading it I felt every emotion in ever character you put in this book. You have inspired me to continue working on the books I have been working on. Thank you for everyone such an amazing book to read.

    Well written and different from anything I've read. I love the idea and the characters. I just wished it was longer and I was sad to find out book two didn't continue the tale. Fun read!

    Great idea for a story and very imaginative, but lacked a bit of realism. Some plot material felt forced and the romance seemed to develop a little too quickly. But other than these things it was an okay book.
  • Amazing and compelling story!

    This was a masterpiece of story writing and I got lost in it's words easily! The world it created was no challenge to fall into, I found myself immersed and skipping meals, staying up late, and reading at stop lights as if the book wouldn't be there if I put off reading it for any long periods of time. To me, the action and romance were both "soft" enough not to get confused or put off by either and just allow the reader to hear the story as if it was told to you from a witness's perspective. I would love to hear more about this world and it's characters if there is to be anything more to tell.
  • Amazing!!!!

    This book was amazing, I among many others loved it. It captured the intensity of fighting, the struggle of segregation, the journey of love, it was all so amazing. How the author made the characters come to life was just great. This book came to life to me.

    I really enjoyed it in the beginning but then it just became a repeated cycle. Getting into one fight with a bunch of guys, win, then 5 minutes later in another fight between a group of guys. I enjoy the creativity of the plot but this book just isn't for me.
