n a realm where one's magical power determines one's worth, Lady Everleigh's lack of obvious ability relegates her to the shadows of the royal court of Bellona, a kingdom steeped in gladiator tradition. Seventeenth in line for the throne, Evie is nothing more than a ceremonial fixture, overlooked and mostly forgotten. But dark forces are at work inside the palace. When her cousin Vasilia, the crown princess, assassinates her mother the queen and takes the throne by force, Evie is also attacked, along with the rest of the royal family. Luckily for Evie, her secret immunity to magic helps her escape the massacre. Forced into hiding to survive, she falls in with a gladiator troupe. Though they use their talents to entertain and amuse the masses, the gladiators are actually highly trained warriors skilled in the art of war, especially Lucas Sullivan, a powerful magier with secrets of his own. Uncertain of her future, or if she even has one, Evie begins training with the troupe until she can decide her next move.

A good read, fast paced plot and interesting characters. I found myself really enjoying the journey of the main character.

It has all the elements of a good fantasy, plus some great fight and dance scenes, but the action at times felt a bit....rushed? not enough at stake? I don't know. I am sure with further outings in this realm, more will be revealed.

This is the first of Estep's books that I've read & I'm hooked! Intrigue, assassins, killing, killing & more killing - this is not a book for the feint of heart. If this type of story appeals to you, the author has written a book you won't want to put down.
