Welcome to the world of Hentrio.
Nick Bint is a seventeen year old who has trained everyday of his life to become an honored Refect when he would come of age. The Refect serve the king and guard Hentrio’s cities in order to keep citizens safe. With so many gifted individuals who can cast destructive magic or master swordsmanship in a short amount of time, crime is a relentless problem. Nick wanted nothing more than to do his part and protect the good citizens of Hentrio…
However, through a slew of ill-fated events of one night, Nick finds himself with a bloody dagger in his right hand. He stands in a tavern while the Refect storm in, put his hands behind his back, and arrest him. The judge sentences him to face two years in the Vincot City Arena. Every citizen in Hentrio fears the arena because only a handful survive in it past six months.
Nick must now fight for his life in front of the crowds of the arena day in and day out. He will face the harsh mental and physical torment the arena has to offer. Everyone that is in cells below the arena is a potential combatant that he would have to fight to the death with. He will have to search within himself to find what he is really made of. The sands of the arena are the foundation of the epic quest Hentrio has to offer young Nick.
This book was so amazing!!! I absolutely loved it and was addicted from the start. There are twists and turns every chapter. Will read again and again.
