This novella is a quick, Sunday evening read. High fantasy fare that takes you to a gladiator-like arena, where one kills to survive, to meet a prince turned killer, who is confronted by the archaic tradition of the Ghul in which a virgin are "deflowered"/raped by these gladiator-killers before being taken by highborns as concubines. This is to teach them a lesson that no matter what horrors they experience with the highborns, things could be worse. Gruesome. And in this context our fallen hero, imprisoned and forced to fight to survive, meets our virgin who is tethered to terrifying sociopathic highborn. They not only save each others lives, but also each others souls and spirit. LIke I said, a perfect Sunday evening read.
