Annotation: It tells of the life of a girl who's life was chosen for her, and must fight for her freedom to save her brother and her life.
Additional Comments: Lyn is the daughter of seven gladiators, but it doesn't stop there. Her seventh father has one last fight, until he can live a normal life, if he lives. Lyn stands there when she watches her father die, and her mother dies in front of her eyes. She is now asked to marrie her father's murdurer. She can only deside one thing, she has to fight him to the death, for her little brother, for her freedom, and for her life. She doesn't know what will happen. This is her first fight, but will it be her last?
