    Summary

    An old woman once told Marcus that he would come to know great love and great happiness as his soul reunited with its other half. He would know he'd come into their presence when his heart lost its rhythm; that happened the day his eyes first saw Esca walk out onto the sands of the arena. The problem is... the old woman said Marcus' other half was a woman, not a man.
