    A surprising new gladiator story with a twist and an underlying love story that will keep you reading I found myself wantingafter I finished the book and was glad to see she is working on the next one


  4. Mummy& Mummy& says:

    I really liked this book The story was unique and it really captured me The Galdoni are a breed of mutated humans with wings they are created in a lab They have a very altered view of the world and when one escapes he decides that what is happening to him and his people is wrong He befriends some humans who offer to help him and he falls in love along the way This has strong child abuse of beatings.

    I was on board with the premise so much that it made me pick it up off the top of my heap of free ebooks And I was disappointed It s not a hard read and it s biggest crime is being boring Things do happen but aren t told in a compelling well and everything is rather easy The villain is the big, bad society and even though the common people allow it to go on they aren t bad so much as ignorant All so easily overcome and rather preachy I really liked Kale and that it was all from his POV I I was on board with the premise so much that it made me pick it up off the top of my heap of free ebooks And I was disappointed It s not a hard read and it s biggest crime is being boring Things do happen but aren t told in a compelling well and everything is rather easy The villain is the big, bad society and even though the common people allow it to go on they aren t bad so much as ignorant All so easily overcome and rather preachy I really liked Kale and that it was all from his POV I liked the idea of the academy and would have preferred to spend time there than in high school Especially since high school seemed no different than high school nowadays except a doctor worked there teaching anatomy I liked the girl but she added nothing to the story except insta love And the contrivances with the sister, the rape and the suicide all worked to dumb down the story rather than elevate it I don t mind the elements but make us care about these people first Bring us in contact with them, show us the conflict and why Kale is the only one suitable to overcome these events The same with the other Galdoni in the academy Why should we care That one kid was sad but I didn t know him or his circumstance well enough to care too much.The humans were all well and good but were under utilized for there being so many of them and they didn t reflect much about Kale This was the poorest part of the book since all we really wanted to know about was this gladiator man with wings who felt in his soul that killing is wrong.The world of the Galdoni was interesting but under developed and the outside world not though of much except through the context of gambling And no thought was taken as to the best way to show us the Galdoni s world I liked the video at the end simply because it shed light on the stuff I was interested in learning about I could have read a whole book about him growing up and escaping at the end In other words a whole story was skipped over for this lame, sad sack of a story The best qualities of this story were discarded while the boring bits were placed front and center Who cares about the callous humans that created the Galdoni I certainly don t care I cared about Kale realizing he s just as human as the outsiders, maybe he s evenhuman because he knows what s right and wrong.The end battle was quite good but came on us suddenly and without good setup I wanted to knowabout the fighter Galdoni who wouldn t stop fighting for the good of all Why was he so determined to stand against Kale Some time and interactions with this Galdoni would have given us these motivations rather than the chest beating we got And that is just one example of what we lost out on in this underdeveloped story.BOTTOM LINE Kale s story was watered down milk sop when it could have been exciting arena fare

    I didn t know what to expect when I bought this as an ebook, but I saw it was a futuristic gladiator book about high school students and thought I d give it a try I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Kale s introduction into a normal life, but I also really liked the fighting scenes and his life back in the Arena The relationships in this book feel real and I related well to the characters I would recommend this book.


  7. Talk Supe Talk Supe says:

    At first I thought this is a Fallen Angel tale but it s not It s like Arcangel from X men turned Galdiator This is a tale of captivity, going up against stereotypes and realizing one s worth Kale s journey is hardly fiction since we ve all struggled with boxes at one point in our lives.


  8. Sam! at the bookstore Sam! at the bookstore says:

    Rating unfinished 1 starThe book is boring, the plot and world are undeveloped, and the insta love makes me want to bang my head against the wall I just don t have the time or energy to finish this book.


  9. Amina Amina says:

    Overall fairly good I love it towards the end and Alsop even made me chuckle from time to time The dialogue was well written.
