The Prize in the Game
THE PRIZE IN THE GAME is the tale of the intertwined fates of four friends, destined for kingship but riven by rivalry and war. Gods stalk the island of Isarnagiri, laying subtle and inescapable dooms upon the feuding kingdoms there. And to those gods, the cares of men and women are less than nothing - but still men and women strive to defy their fates and build destinies of their own. THE PRIZE IN THE GAME takes us to a shining era of dark powers, legendary heroes, and passionate loves - all of them ruled by the hand of fate.

"Best installment yet."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Walton sure-handedly evokes a primitive realm where the Otherworld seamlessly impinges upon reality, bringing sounds, smells, sorrow, hatred and burning love to life as powerfully as the thrust of a barbed spear. She also captures the terrible beauty of a warrior race in an outworn time, struggling, in Yeats's phrase, to come clear of the eternal nets of wrong and right."--"Publishers Weekly"
