Uncaged Review – Rogue: Planet Athion by Debbie Cassidy

Rogue: Planet Athion
Debbie Cassidy

Each Victory is another day I get to continue breathing.  Each Victory is a reprieve from Death.

Ever since I was betrayed and taken from my home planet, ever since they pumped me with poison and abandoned me on this asteroid to fight or die, I’ve been surviving.

But I’m not alone.

There are others with me, alien to me, just as I am to them. Separated into Houses we fight as a team on the blood-soaked sands while the elite watch.

Each day is about survival until him.

An outsider, he brings death, but he might also be our salvation.

There can be no us and them. There can be no prejudice. There can only be the team, because together we are stronger.

This is a good start to a scifi series. Women from Earth are abducted by two races on a planet, the Trads and the Athlon for reasons that they lost their females on their planet from a virus, and the women on Earth may be the only way to continue their races. The Trads used fertility drugs on the women that misfired and turned the women infertile. Of these infertile women, the lone survivor, Rogue is thrust into battle units, or a fight club – which is for the bigwigs entertainment, and these are fights to the death. The drugs have changed Rogue into almost a Berserker, and is a tough opponent.

I can’t give away too much, as this a shorter story, but the story is a good start to this series. I wasn’t blown away, and depending on my time and TBR pile as to whether I get back to the series.
