If you are the sort who likes to read tales of grand adventure and ferocious battle, then it is likely that you will soon find yourself lost within the pages of this book. Before long, you will discover yourself entangled in a loud and riotous brawl inside the smoky innards of a gnomes’ tavern. Perhaps you will even be swept away in a dramatic clash upon the sea-washed decks of a pirates’ galley. Or, possibly, you will find yourself cast into the dreary depths of the Rumble Pit, that grim and fabled arena where many an unlucky traveler has arrived after a treacherous voyage across the Seas of Ire.
TRAPPED IN A PIT OF MONSTERS . . .
When young Kendra Kandlestar is granted a wand by the ancient tree of Een, she yearns to become a great sorceress. But magic doesn’t come easily to Kendra, and she soon turns to the shard from Greeve—and its dark power—to help her rescue her brother from the Rumble Pit, a deadly gladiator arena where all manner of mythical creatures are forced to fight in a fierce contest for survival. Yet, as Kendra is seduced by the power of the insidious shard, she discovers that the greatest battle just might be the one brewing inside her own heart. Is this a war she can win?
