Born in the dust…

A boy be quick...


But can he survive the Game?


Twist's grandparent's died in a prison colony on a hostile planet. His parents did too.

The only way out is through the Guardian Tournament, 

where he can win a place among the elite warriors who protect Canyon City.


But to earn his warpknife, Twist will need all of his speed and wits. 


He must defeat the children of the ruling class within the deadly world of the Game,

a world where the line between virtual and reality blurs.


A world of dark secrets, where his enemies hold every advantage.
