Summary

A war to enslave the population. A prison planet designed for blood sport. The Sovereign Empire’s power was a lie.

Brutally trained his entire short life to be a Sovereign Elite and defend the Empire, Azrael instead finds himself a prisoner. Not even eight years old, and without system access, Azrael is abandoned on Tech Duinn. He must rely on his hunting trainers to keep his identity secret. There is no doubt that if people learn his last name, he would wake up in the arena...if he woke up at all.

While fleeing the takeover of Mur, the group discovers how deep despair can drag them. Soon, only the praise of the bloody mob in the Arena Pit Dungeon keeps them alive. Surviving seems impossible, yet Azrael vows to not only live, but to find a way off-world.

Azrael lives only because of applause. Others will die for it. Death or escape is the only way out of the cycle.

Great beginning to a new series

This series is like a prequel to Ether Collapse but happens far back in time. I really enjoyed it

Love the world he is Creating

I have really gotten into this style of fantasy and the biggest selling point for me is the world in which these events take place. Ryan DeBruyn has done a great job making an exciting world in which I just want o keep listing to and learning more about. I have listened to all his books and will immediately buy any books he comes out with Great work!

Great start to a supporting story line

I enjoyed this start to a new story within the Ether Collapse universe. It's a fresh look at the gaming system and the greater story at large. I very much look forward to the next installment.

Once I got into it I couldn't put it down.

Lots of action and a very slow development of the characters due to the nature of his training. I don't normally like prequels or side stories since it can take an author down a path of everything being lost. I am waiting on 2 books now the original series and this one.
