Game Wardens rule most of the galaxy by a fierce empire built on enslavement and brokered deals. The only means to earn one’s freedom is by playing in the Alien Games. Two slaves go in the arena, the survivor, if there is one, is given their freedom and crowned a king, earning them a small country to rule and slaves of their own.

To make the battle more fun for spectators, genetically enhanced monsters, sahalias, are given to the combatants, but they must found in a scavenger hunt. Five orbs, each hatching into a lizard that will bond with their keeper, are hidden on a random planet. If the competitor finds all five, they have a great imbalance of power over the other, who will have none. The sahalias are created with one purpose, to battle to the death and destroy the other competitor.

I really enjoyed the relationship building. It was full of banter and conversation the progress of which built the relationship between Caden and Raghib in a very organic way. There was no need for too much descriptive prose, the interactions told their own story very well. 

Fairly written, could be a little more depth in the story. But I really enjoyed the characters and the writing.

I definitely plan to continue with the series.
