As a modern gladiator's daughter, Lyn and her family live by the rules of the Gladiator Sports Association. But those rules can turn against you.

When Lyn's seventh father dies in the ring, his opponent, Uber, captures Lyn's dowry bracelet--and her hand in marriage.

To win her freedom, Lyn will do what no girl has done before: enter the arena and fight her father's murderer--even though she's falling in love with him.
