Overview

"A surprising new gladiator story with a twist and an underlying love story that will keep you reading. I found myself wanting more after I finished the book and was glad to see she is working on the next one!" Jennifer Ekins- Goodreads Reviewer

". . . This book took me by complete surprise! . . .I really liked was that this book had a male protagonist. . . This book had all the genres that I love included in it: paranormal, dystopian, and romance. . .The society and government reminded me a little of The Hunger Games but with a unique twist to it. And I liked the subtle touch of romance which added to the story but did not overpower it. I was so impressed with Galdoni that I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fresh voice in YA." Lexie Hogan- Goodreads Reviewer

"This story is unique and inventive. . .I was mesmorized by this world of bred killers. . . I must give credit for something so creative." TheBookWhisperer, Book Blogger

"Very satisfying read, I enjoyed the characters immensely and the conflict felt real and devastating." Lucy- Goodreads Reviewer

". . . A futuristic gladiator book about high school students. The relationships in this book feel real and I related well to the characters. I would recommend this book." Steven Bond- Goodreads Reviewer

"Everything I've read from this author has left me speechless. She has such a wide range of subjects and characters, but it's the heart that links them together. Read her books. They will sweep you away." S. Teppen- Goodreads Reviewer

This is the Arena, and here we live to die." These are the words carved into a holding cell where genetically-altered gladiators, the winged humans called Galdoni, are trained to fight. Kale, rescued by three high school students and nursed back from the brink of death, is given the chance to experience life as a human. When he is captured, he has to use what he learned in the world outside the Academy in order to free the other Galdoni and return to the human girl he loves.

Dark and exciting, Galdoni pushes the boundaries of love in a world of violence.

Galdoni is one of my favorite books. It pulls you in at the very begining and makes you keep wanting to read more and more. It has the right amount of action, romance, and the super natural. The characters seem to be sitting right by you because of their emotional depth. And the storyline was amazing and new. The only bad thing about it was the spelling errors, but those were easily over-looked. Please give it a try. It's free. xD

VERY GOOD READ! A very different take on the typical "angel" read. The Galdoni were bred to fight. Can they even achieve friendship and love? Written for the YA, I feel this is a great read for anyone that loves a good fantasy series. Give it a try, I think you will enjoy it. It is a very quick read, and I will definitely be buying the second in the series to see where the author takes the characters and story line. Thanx to Cheree Alsop for an amazing story! Cannot wait to see what you have for us next! -- SPeeD

Dystopia is a genre that I have yet to explore because for some reason I find it a challenge wrapping my imagination around post apocalyptic stuff. Good thing this wasn't too futuristic for my taste as there are still familiar elements like the order of society, teenagers acting stupid and the first blush of love so the setting is not a far cry from present day. The cruelty and stigma of being a Galdoni is heartbreaking, my heart really went out to all the Galdoni towards the end, how their childhood was juxtaposed with "normal" and activists fighting for their rights on their behalf.

I couldn't put it down! Some parts even made me tear up. I highly recommend.

This book was a rapidly moving set of scenarios, creating strong emotions and the realization that appearances are only physical differences (often created by greedy men) to gain a profit. I really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading the next books. It had a good theme of lab grown beings trying to be recognized as more than animals and trying to gain acceptance.
