Overview

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 centaurs, dragons, and a myriad 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.

About the Author

Growing up on a farm, Lee Edward Födi was subjected to various horrible chores such as cleaning up after chickens, pigs, geese, and younger siblings. There was a time when his father harbored hopes that his son would take over the family business—but these aspirations came to an abrupt end when the young author accidentally ran the tractor over his dad’s outhouse (thankfully, his dad was not inside at the time). As a result, Födi went on to pursue his love of art, mythology, and storytelling, all of which (luckily) do not require any skill in operating heavy machinery. He is the author and illustrator of The Chronicles of Kendra Kandlestar and has also illustrated several picture books, including I’ll Follow the Moon and The Chocolatier’s Apprentice, a Canadian national bestseller. When he is not writing and illustrating, Födi spends his time teaching kids how to daydream through his fun-filled creative writing workshops. He enjoys travelling, and especially exploring castles, mazes, tombs, and temples—not to mention tiny places hidden between the cracks of here and there.

Read an Excerpt

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 gnome tavern. Perhaps you will even be swept away in a dramatic clash upon the seawashed decks of a pirates’ galley.
Or, possibly, you will fi nd 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.
Here, in the doomed light of the Rumble Pit, all manner of creatures will collide in a raucous contest for survival.
