Audiobook Review: Champion (Prison Planet, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Champion by Emmy Chandler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Ms. Wolfe, you’re the only woman who’s ever requested the arena.” 

Sylvie Wolfe made a bad decision, for a good reason. Now, sentenced to death for her crime, she has only one decision left to make—the method of her execution. Most people pick lethal injection. 

Sylvie demands death by combat. 

Her choice gets her sent to the prison planet Rhodon, where in zone one, the galaxy’s most dangerous convicted murderers fight to the death on camera in a gladiatorial-style competition that will end with one inmate being declared the champion. And having his—or her—death sentence commuted to life in prison. 

Graham Anderson thinks he’s lost his mind when he sees a woman in zone one. He pulls Sylvie into his cell just before lockdown, temporarily shielding her from a throng of monsters intent on laying claim to her. By the time the doors unlock at dawn, he’s made nearly a hundred vicious new enemies and lost his heart to the fiercest, sexiest, most determined woman he’s ever met. 

With death looming in the arena and foes aligning against them behind the scenes, Sylvie and Graham must fight for every moment they share. But in the end, there can be only one champion. Which means only one of them can leave the arena alive… 


A fierce female!

The heroine: Sylvie Wolfe – she was a teacher on her home planet and was convicted of a crime and sentenced to death on the prison planet Rhodon. She has a choice of lethal injection or death by combat in zone one on Rhodon in the gladiator ring to be televised to the galaxy. She chose death by combat, but she is the first and only female on zone one and she is not really prepared for the utter lawlessness and depravity of the male prisoner population.

The Hero: Graham Anderson – He has been fighting in the arena in Zone one for quite a while and is in the top tier of the opponents and he knows most of the other combatants. He tries to help out some of the other inmates in the bullpen, but spends most of his time working out and making sure he has his favorite cell every night, the one with a decent mattress. He has enough seniority to take the cell he wants. When he sees a woman in the bullpen, he grabs her into his cell and locks the door for the night.

The Story: The combatants fight often and each fight is to the death and only the champion at the end of the season gets his death sentence reduced to life in prison. Which means Sylvie has to win quite a few fights to come out on top. Though once Sylvie and Graham fall for each other, they face a dilemma in that only one person each season will win and get moved to another zone (general population) on the prison planet.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. It was narrated by Jillian Macie and Aiden Snow. Jillian is a good narrator who has a good female and a decent male voice. She does sarcasm very well and she’s emotion through her voice. Aiden is one of my favorite narrators and has a deep melodic voice which matches exactly how Sylvie describes Graham’s voice.

The story is good, the romance is pretty quick and I like how protective Graham is of Sylvie despite how well she can fight. She is pretty hardcore for a female, but she is still one woman in a bullpen full of over 100 rapists, murderers and the like. She can usually handle one on one combat but that isn’t what she faces outside the arena.
