Growing up in Imperia with prominent parents allowed Valens to become a well-rounded young man. He is educated in literature and the arts, and he is also a very talented warrior. But when his father, the greatest gladiator in Imperia, is murdered, his father's famous school is sent into disarray. Valens, along with his childhood friend Ludo, vows to return the school to its former greatness. But along the way he finds that following in his father's footsteps requires much more than just running a successful gladiator school.
