Codi’s life is falling apart.
With no parents and no prospects, she’s good at one thing: fighting. When one of her teachers cashes in on an old debt, she is thrown a lifeline, and sent somewhere she can finally use her skills.
Conscripted into a high-tech training academy, Codi is set on the bruising path to compete in the Gauntlet – an interstellar combat tournament of epic proportions. She now has one goal: to win the Gauntlet - no matter the cost.
