Trained since childhood to compete as an intergalactic gladiator, Seven’s rules are simple: Fight. Win. Or die trying. The official battles are fast approaching and Seven is ready to recruit his unit of fighters from the planet most recently annexed by his empire—Earth.
But when Thirteen, his newest female recruit, defies all his commands, she threatens to destroy everything he has fought to achieve. Thirteen won’t give in. Not to him. Not to the system. Not to anyone. Except in order to live, she must yield to his will, and embrace the superior race now ruling the universe.
This volume of Markram Battles is no longer available for purchase. A new (and updated) collection of short stories will be published as a companion set to the upcoming duology. Read more here.
