My Review: 5*
Mix between Karate Kid and Gladiator
Slavery in a futuristic society includes very harsh treatment that we associate with the Roman Empire. Young Bensin is a martial artist who loves the cavvarach shil mixed martial arts event. He is happiest when he's in his zone using the cavvarach to fight but he promised his dying mother that he'd look after his sister Ellie. More important he promised that Ellie would be free one day. How can a young teen help his sister escape slavery?
This book is a mix between Karate Kid and Gladiator, expertly written to make us care what happens to Bensin, Ellie, and even his new owner. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good story.
Bensin, a teenage slave and martial artist, is just one
