I can't quite bring myself to give this one star because I did finish it and I did like the overall storyline. But it definitely doesn't get more than two stars. The writing is full of mistakes, practically every other paragraph Brooke is 'shocked' or 'awed' or 'amazed' usually at fairly unexciting things. A lot of things happen suddenly too. 'Suddenly she found the keys' etc. there were also a lot of points where I questioned the realism. Especially when Brooke is feverish and in pain with a multitude of injuries including a bad snake bite and is given an injection of what is apparently penicillin. Which makes some sense because it should stop it getting infected or something. But then Brooke goes to sleep and wakes up magically healed (pretty much) she's not in pain, her leg isn't swelled up it just all seems so unrealistic.

But really the thing that annoyed me the most throughout the book is the totally unnecessary romance element. For most of the first half of the book, Brooke is chasing down slaverunners with Ben who she met at the beginning of her chase. A couple of hours later after minimal interactions mostly orders or shoot or get in the car etc. and while both seriously injured and still worried about their siblings we get this from Brooke: "I find myself losing my sense of time. His are eyes are so sensitive, so out of place here. They are the eyes of a poet, or painter— an artist, a tortured soul. I force myself to look away. There’s something about those eyes that makes me unable to think clearly when I look back at them. I don’t know what it is, and that bothers me. I’ve never felt this way about a boy before." It gets worse as the author tries to set up a love triangle later in the book and it all seems so unnecessary and out of place.

Enjoyed the first 'sample' section so downloaded the rest, I'm pleased it was free because at nearly half way through I am packing it in.

There's only so many times you can read about how fast a car or motorbike is travelling, how the lead 'guns' the car, several car crashes with barely a scratch and a car chase that goes on for pages and makes you dizzy with all the references to streets you've no idea about!!! Shame because it started promisingly but I really can't stand it now!

This is only a sample book! It looks like it's gonna be a really good book but this is only a sample of 2 chapters! They really should say that it is but it looks like the full book will be really good!

I really liked reading 'Arena one'. It was the typical post apocalyptic era book with an exciting concept. I enjoyed reading this book and the author has a great imagination, which I look forward to in the next book in the series.
Now, for some things I didn't like. I felt like the author could have been more descriptive in this book especially in the fight scenes. I saw the author repeating certain words during the fights which, for me, took away some of the intensity at those times. I also felt that the author could have developed the characters just a little bit more considering that this was a full length novel, but as it is a series I will let that go.
In conclusion, I have to say that I was a little apprehensive about reading a book by this author because I did not like the
'Vampire Journals' written by this author. I was happily surprised by this book and recommend it to the action loving readers.
All in all I give this book a 7.

I bought this on my Kindle because I had a big ol' Hunger Games hole to fill. I had literally just finished THG and didn't know what to do with myself so went searching for similar novels. I read the 'taster' chapters and decided I had to know what happened so bought the book. I finished it a lot quicker than I would have liked but otherwise I rather enjoyed it. Whilst it had a lot of The Hunger Games about it (sibling devotion, post-apocalypse, fighting for entertainment), there was enough different about it for it not to feel like a rip-off. Looking back, not a lot actually happens. It's more of the main character's (who narrates) "journey" and memories and so on than time actually progressing or things happening (although there is a fair amount of action, it's quite short and sweet, and sometimes repetitive). There's a love triangle which is completely unnecessary and, in my opinion, not very well written. It's obviously something the author felt it needed and just shoved in there to cover that base, as it were, as opposed to really working it into the story, but it's easy to skim over and not be too sickened or confused by.

I am yet to commit to buying the other books in the series but I expect I shall at some point when I'm at a loss for something to read as I found it an easy-read and relatively engaging.

A really gripping read, the story line is exciting throughout the whole book and I have saw reviews that have said if you love The Hunger Games you'll love this book it is completely true! This book is exciting,gripping and is just simply excellent. Its well worth the read as I thoroughly enjoyed this book beginning till end.
