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.
