Prince Abramm is betrayed by his family, his religious leaders, and (he thinks) by God when he discovers a political plot to murder his brothers and place him on the throne as a puppet king. Sold as a slave and made to fight as a gladiator, Abramm must kill to survive, battling himself as well. His sister, and others are searching for him, but does he want to return? Abramm's portion of the story is pretty good, although his soul-agonizing gets a bit old. I really like his companion's character and found him quite interesting. The love interest is trivial and stupid tho - she really should have been left out or her role needed to be dramatically larger. The same goes for his sister. A large portion of the story follows her journey to locate her brother, but nothing essential to the story-line ever happens with her. You could cut both female characters completely, and the story would be essentially the same. Perhaps the sister's efforts will have significance in the next book. Otherwise an interesting book, but nowhere near as good as Arena. I would give it 3.5 stars.
