Cephas has no memories of how he came to fight in the gladiatorial arena of the floating earthmote called theIsland of the Free. All he knows of the world beyond, he has gleaned from stories the master of the games reads to his followers.
From a distance Corvus Nightfeather and his Circus of Wonders have watched the Island of the Free, piecing together its weaknesses and its defenses. And watched with interest the young genasi gladiator whose feet have never once touched the earth.
