I was hooked from the first page to the last. Kale is one amazing, brave, kind, and honest Galdoni. Raised to fight in the Arena, he knows no other way of life but to fight to survive. Then one day his world is turned upside down when the Arena shuts down and he and the others are thrown out into the human world. Here he has to unlearn everything the Arena has taught him. But once the Arena opens again Kale struggles with either living his human life or going back to save the other Galdoni from their fate in the Arena.
“This is the Arena, and here we live to die.” These are the words carved into a holding cell where genetically-altered gladiators, the winged humans called Galdoni, are trained to fight. Kale, rescued by three high school students and nursed back from the brink of death, is given the chance to experience life as a human. When he is captured, he has to use what he learned in the world outside the Academy in order to free the other Galdoni and return to the human girl he loves.
Dark and exciting, Galdoni pushes the boundaries of love in a world of violence
