Venture Delving, an out of control bonded servant boy, finds himself in the last place he ever expected—a center renowned for training boys to be professional fighters. He must battle not only rival fighters, but the ghosts of his past and the members of a privileged warrior class who stand between him and his dream, to become a Champion fighter and to marry Jade, his master's daughter.
