From the author of the New York Times bestselling SUMMONER series, comes a brand new EPIC world.

Cade, a misunderstood juvenile delinquent, and Harriet, a Victorian cat-burglar, live in two different eras - until they're both transported to another world.

Abandoned in a realm populated with lost remnants from the past, prehistoric animals and monstrous creatures, they are forced to become contenders in an endless, brutal tournament.

It's time to get ready for battle . . . because hiding is not an option.
