Lin is not your average teen-ager. For one thing, her little brother spits out prophecies like any other kid would talk about a toy or something else. Another thing is that Lin has had 7 dads. But most of all, her dads were all gladiators, as in fight-to-the-death matches. When Lin loses Tommy, her last father, her life becomes turmoil, and somehow SHE ends up in the arena.

I loved this book, and the only problem I had was the ending, but I won’t tell you why. 🙂 *sneaky*
