In the brutal world of battleboxing, Imalroc sacrificed years to become an unbeatable champion. But his will to fight vanishes when he learns that he will never earn his freedom from the deadly sport, and he begins his own private rebellion against his masters. When his contract passes into the hands of the Toriem cousins, Imalroc discovers an unlikely path to freedom. The longer he is owned by the cousins, the further he is drawn into the web of secrets, politics and seduction that surround the Toriems and the dangerous powers closing in upon them. And as the stakes rise, Imalroc is faced with the realization that while his desperate drive for freedom has kept him alive, the price for breaking out of the battlebox forever might destroy him.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Hello again people! It's been a while, but I am finally back with a story I'm so excited to share. To those of you who read Beginnings, I want to say that this is a much darker, more complicated and distinctly different kind of story, but please give it a try! I do want to note however that it has a lot more depictions of violence and sex, because of the world in which it is set. I love these characters and I'm so happy to finally be introducing them to all of you. I hope you enjoy it. And please comment! I love feedback! It really helps me stay motivated to continue writing. Thank you for reading and supporting my writing!

So is the name pronounced mall-rock? Or la-mall-rock?

Your writing style is true perfection and you have quite an extended vocabulary I love it!
What I love most about this story is the detail information about everything. It's like being a part of it
This makes me wonder how slavery works in world if he was supposed to be let free eventually? Unless there was some kind of personal deal made that wasn't honored
Fantastic ending to this first chapter -- I love your descriptions and the amount of detail you've given me already. I can picture him, calculating every move, waiting for his moment to strike. I already really like Imalroc... can't wait to see what becomes of him ^-^
