The Ten Houses pit contestants against each other, their lives forfeit as their captors strive to win the Dragon Sceptre. The fates of Jairus' loved ones are dependent on him winning against impossible odds. How can a farm boy prevail against trained warriors and a vindictive sorceress? How can he ever find his way home?
• "Amusing and tense in turns. A gripping read."
• "A fast moving story left me eager to read more, kept me wondering the whole way through - would he win and return home? Would his woman still be waiting for him?"
• "A ferociously good story of mayhem, murder, an evil woman, and a peasant boy who finds inner strength and wisdom while struggling to stay alive in a wicked place. Scott has invented a world the reader will completely believes exists—dragons and all."
• "Well written and fast paced, the author has packed the pages with equal parts political intrigue and hold-your-breath action. Recommended for series fans and anyone who loves a highly imaginative story that never slacks."
