The year is 2050 and the arenas are firmly part of increasingly slave-owning societies.
But how to keep the attractions fresh? How to keep the crowds happy? That’s what is exercising Brad Willman, head trainer of one gladiator stable outside London.
Then he has a brainwave and the lives of two women are turned upside down as they find themselves catapulted into the brutal world of the arenas, where girls are traded, trained and used as commodities.
However one of them can walk free, but at what price? And which one?
The twelfth novel in the Arena series is a cruelly inventive addition indeed!
