Publisher's Summary

A rising star in the weightless combat sport of zeroboxing, Carr "the Raptor" Luka dreams of winning the championship title. Recognizing his talent, the Zero Gravity Fighting Association assigns Risha, an ambitious and beautiful Martian colonist, to be his brandhelm - a personal marketing strategist. It isn't long before she's made Carr into a popular celebrity and stolen his heart along the way. As his fame grows, Carr becomes an inspirational hero on Earth, a once-great planet that's fallen into the shadow of its more prosperous colonies. But when Carr discovers a far-reaching criminal scheme, he becomes the keeper of a devastating secret. Not only will his choices put everything he cares about in jeopardy but they may also spill the violence from the sports arena into the solar system.

Highly Entertaining

A friend recommended this book to me. It's sci-fi, it's fighting, what's not to like? However, when I saw that it was considered young adult reading I was skeptical. I was a little surprised by the narrator's voice and delivery but in the end I realize how perfect it was. The story is relatively simple, but it is quite engaging putting you in the mind of a fighter as he moves both inside and outside the ring.

I really loved that the author didn't spell things out for the reader and we are free to fill in the gaps. The world building was solid and the action was great but not sensationalized. I found myself wondering again and again where the story could or would go next, and the author never let me down.
