Publisher's Summary

They called her the Gladiator Queen, the first female heir to the throne of Norihame. Leyli never wanted this. But her cousin's scheming left no other option. He'd killed her brother, trying to claim the throne for himself, and sold her off to be a gladiator, hoping to get rid of her. It didn't work. Now, she'll do whatever it takes to make sure he can't destroy the country her family fought so hard to keep safe. Even a queen's number one job - she has to marry a noble and produce an heir. 

On the sands of the arena, death was honest. Men fought for their lives and nothing else. In the palace, everything is different. The threats are veiled in fancy clothes and whispered rumors. Spies lie in wait around every corner, bribed with promises of power and wealth. Once, she thought this was normal. But no longer can she care about petty scandals, not when her citizens - her friends - are dying because of laws her family made. 

To win this game, she has to keep her cousin far from succession. The best way is an heir of her own. She needs a noble husband who won't kill her in her sleep and - hopefully - one who will ignore the hulking shadow of her best friend turned bodyguard. She never expected Tristan to become a weapon that could be used against her. How much of her own happiness will she give up for Norihame?

Absolutely Amazing

This is my favourite series by Auryn ( along with Rise of the illiri)
I completely devoured the trilogy then had to buy them on audiobook.
Th world that this series sucks you into just leaves you wanting more. It will not disappoint anyone and i for one would recommend it to all xxx

Mmmm!

This second book was OK, but nothing much really happening.

It is still a pleasant listen, apart from over use of swear words. I do not believe these add to the story at all, but rather detract from it, which is why I have dropped a star.

Narrator has still not grown on me. Perhaps me more than her.
