This is a story of a child born into slavery, and kept in isolation for the majority of his life. He is made into a ruthless fighter for the Arena and has to fight to live. When I started this book I wasn't so sure that I would like it, but I fell in love with Nameless! He is highly intelligent, although quite a few underestimate him. You see this character grow tremendously in this book and become a champion. Can't wait to read the next book!

This book is different from other stories in many aspects. The first 2/3 of the book has no dialogue, but it adds to the mysterious life the protagonist leads. Nameless' story starts as a newborn baby. His mom dies giving him birth. He is 'tossed' to another pregnant slave woman for her to take care of him. From there, he fights his way into life, trying to stay alive, but not as a normal slave, he's left alone in a dark cage to fend for himself, never given a name, and never even talked to. That left him without any idea why he sometimes got food and sometimes not, or why they would beat from time to time. Having no dialogues helps see the world through the child's eyes. So as strange as it may seem, I believe it works well.

One of the few cons about the story is that since the protagonist doesn't get a 'name' until far in the book. He's being referred as the child, the youth, and the Silk, which confused me sometimes. Because of it (and maybe some other things), I often found myself reading a paragraph or two a couple of times before catching the meaning.

That said, over all, I greatly enjoyed the book. If you like gladiators and the likes with a little addition of fantasy, you should give it a try.
