Description

Prize In The Game is the tale of the interwined fates of four friends, destined for kingship but driven by rivalry and war. Gods stalk the island of Tir 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. When a friendly competition leads to the death of a beloved horse and incurs the wrath of the Horse Goddess, the stage is set for a deadly game of politics, love, and betrayal. As the goddess's curse chases them down the years, Conal, Emer, Darag, and Ferdia will find that ties of friendship, and even love, may not be enough to prevent their respective countries from attacking each other in a war that will devastate the island. 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.
