There was a time, long ago, when wars were won and lost based on the outcomes of single battles between heroes. Entire countries were moved. Empires rose and fell.
In The Tournament, that time has come again.
Crack open Blue Fall, the first in the series, to get started!
|The Tournament is the world's most dangerous state-sponsored war game. Each country fields a team of three players. Each team is given a color as their calling card and the freedom to do whatever it takes to win. The playing field is the entire globe and the stakes couldn’t be higher. There is only one requirement: it must be kept secret.
Frank Youngsmith’s life is stuck in a rut. He’s broke, bored, and works a dead-end job. What he doesn’t know is that he’s about to be in a fight for his life. When Frank stumbles into the dark world of the Tournament when the game is on, it’s up to him to expose the secret...or die trying.
|Two players have been murdered. Two killers are on the loose. Nothing is what it seems.
The world is awake now. The Tournament has captivated everyone, but no winner can be declared until the mystery of what happened to Team Blue is solved. Meanwhile, three new players are chosen to rebuild the fallen team, but they are young and inexperienced, and instantly targeted. Their survival is dependent upon their existence remaining a secret. But in the Tournament, secrets are hard to keep.
New alliances are formed, old enemies are confronted, and the truth is finally revealed in Grey Winter, the second book in the Tournament series.
|The Black House gathers power and the remaining teams are divided. The Tournament will fall into the hands of Eddie Mazaryk and Team Black unless Ellie Willmore and Team Blue can stop them. But to stop Black, Ellie needs to pull off a miracle: unite sworn enemies to beat the best of the best.
The stakes have never been higher: The winners own the Tournament. The losers forfeit everything…even their lives. Ties of friendship, love, and hate are put to the test under a hail of gunfire in Black Spring, book three of the Tournament series.
|It's been ten years since the Battle of the Black House. The Tournament has grown beyond anyone's wildest dreams – with dozens of teams, hundreds of players, and millions of fans worldwide. Every year more teams are added to this global gunfight, and every year the original eight teams get older and a step slower.
Ellie Willmore and Team Blue wonder if each passing Tournament might be their last. What they don't know is that this time, someone plans to make sure of it. A mysterious figure who calls himself the Gardner has his sights set on rigging the Tournament and hand-picking the winners, and he wants Team Blue out.
In a competition without rules, Ellie realizes just how far some will go to win. And in what might be their final Tournament appearance, Team Blue find themselves in a fight for their lives.
