*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Banet has done some incredible world building when it comes to this new series. We get an entirely new world full of races we have never heard of where we follow Mave as she has been the only female gladiator for pretty much a thousand years after she is taken captive losing her race the war. Survival has made her entire the tough woman she now is so when two men are added from the outside things don't like they will be different until we get a twist. This leads to some amazing surprises that really move the story along until you find yourself at the end wondering what will happen next. I look forward to book two. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
