Publisher's Summary

On the first day, she met her match. Then she killed 16 men.  

Tossed into the gladiator arena, the delicate girl in the fancy pink dress should have been the first to die. Leyli had other plans. Surviving was at the top of her list. Revenge was a close second.  

Having grown up behind the sheltered walls of the Oberhame Palace, she knew what the crowd wanted. She'd just become a pawn in the games of men. But why was she still alive? They'd killed her brother, the heir to the throne. Had they gotten to her father? Was the king dead?  

In the cell beside her, the Lion of Lenlochlien was impressed. When he offered advice, she took it. When she kept coming back after each round, he dared to hope she'd survive. He had no idea he was about to become her best weapon. 

Leyli didn't just want to live through the games, she wanted to protect her father's throne, but to do that, she had to become someone else. The Lion had to make her a Wolf.  

Chained side by side, he'll show her how to be a killer. She'll give him a reason to keep fighting. Together, they'll learn it takes a friend to survive.

Good surprise

The interesting thing about this book is the genre it is in sci-fi/ fantasy. I think this book is more a game of thrones set in a bronze age it might even be considered a romance story. As well the adult relationship is done very well and quite in opinion believable. The characters are likable, the fight scenes are good and I believe this book is worth a listen.

Auryn is a master!

Please make all your books available on audio! The two currently available are both some of the best books I have heard. Narration is also great on both this and "Kiss of Death". You are a genius of this genre!
