Rome's hunger for gladiatorial combat has never been greater.   
The passion for novelty and variety in the arena has given rise to a range of warriors but none quite so like Krista.
Sole survivor of her family's brutal murder, Krista is now the property of Commander Lucius Niclaus and is sent to train until she is old enough to fight in the Arena.
Growing up in the Arena, Krista refuses to be a slave like her parents and her deadly combat skills earn her the adoration of the public and the respect of fellow gladiator, Artorius.
Fighting for her freedom, Krista will do anything to break her chains and kill the man who slaughtered her family and put her there; Commander Niclaus. 
But Krista's pride and skill earn her powerful enemies; catching the eye of the Emperor's sister, Krista will have to navigate a web of betrayal, love and pain if she is to win her freedom and avenge her family.

From the sands of the arena, the ultimate female warrior will rise.
