The world of the Arena is a personal one. In the shadow of the crowd, on the sands of battle, each combatant has something to prove. Here, a wizard wants to show everyone that an orc can become the most celebrated spellcaster in history. Here, a barbarian craves victory so much that he would sacrifice his soul to win. Here, a giant needs success on the grandest of stages to achieve riches beyond his wildest dreams. And here, a dwarf trained by elves may defy them all in his quest to become the greatest Arena fighter of all-time.
These are the scrawls of a scribe who saw every one of their encounters with each other. These are his chronicles. This is their combat. The Arena beckons.
Magic/Blade: Notes from an Arena Onlooker is the first book in J.D. Camacho’s Areniana series, a cross between Rocky and Lord of the Rings.
