Steven Alexander has what he considers the perfect life. With a good job, a loving wife, and happy and healthy sons, he has little to complain about. In a flash that life is ripped away and he is thrust into a world of violence and slavery beginning with a brutal home invasion. His sons are murdered in front of him and he and his wife Rebecca are then kidnapped, drugged, and taken to an uncharted tropical island where they awake on a pristine beach in the company of five strangers.

The island is a playground of horror and the kidnapped are forced to participate in the Game, a modern-day rendition of the Coliseum of ancient Rome, where they must compete in acts of murder, rape, and self-mutilation for the amusement of an unseen wealthy elite. Contestants must survive the Game five times to earn their freedom from the island. Losers become the evening meal.

Steven struggles to survive in a world where violence is not only accepted but cheered. He fights to hold on to his wife in a community where cannibalism is survival, brutality is affection, and living another day is at the expense of his own soul. Survival comes with a price, however, and he soon learns that not all of the players are there unwillingly and they’ve paid a steep price for the opportunity.

Surviving the Game was only the beginning of the nightmare…

Steven Alexander escaped the brutality of the Game, a modern-day rendition of the Coliseum of ancient Rome, where contestants must compete in acts of murder, rape, and self-mutilation for the amusement of an unseen wealthy elite. Contestants must survive the Game five times to earn their freedom. Losers become the evening meal. He escaped without winning, a feat unheard of in the five hundred year history of the Game.

Steven lost everything to the Court, the ancient group that runs the Game. His sons were murdered in front of him. His wife disappeared into the debauchery of the Game. His old life was ripped away leaving him with no choice but to run, all the while trying to protect the innocent young girl, Mia, who he rescued from the Game.

But how do you run from a worldwide organization that controls the police, the media, and politicians high and low? How do you find help among people who will do anything to become part of the Game? The Court will stop at nothing to protect the secrets of the Game and they want Steven back at any cost leaving him with only one choice… sweet, simple revenge.
