England is home to Luke, a young man. Right now is a time of dwarfs, erupting volcanoes, and fighting. Luke is disappointed when he does not make it into the Contest, so when young Matthew Grant is taken ill with a fever, Luke realizes that he will be the one fighting instead. Don’t read this if you get scared a lot. It is full of adventure and excitement, a great story for nine years to young adults. I rate this 4/5.
