Teenager Scott Connor's world is about to change, and he's not even close to being prepared for what awaits. All he wants to do is win a skateboarding competition-but all is not what it seems. He signed up for the chance to win a trophy, but now he's fighting for his very life. The games are much more sinister and scary than anything he could have imagined, and now he is one of ten teenagers trapped within the Death Game. The creation of an evil puppet master named France Odio, the game pits teenagers against each other in a fight to the death. Scott must call on every skill he's ever learned to overcome the deadly challenges set before him. Ten will enter the competition, but only one will survive it. With two challenges behind him, Scott is at a breaking point-a side effect of staring death in the face. He thought he was incapable of more, but the worst is yet to come. Trapped in a desert that reeks of death and terror, he has two weeks to make it to the safe haven before the unthinkable happens. Monsters hide in ambush everywhere he tries to hide. Is anyplace truly safe? Can he make it to next round-or will be fall victim to the horrors of the desert? Is his fate to survive or die alone and forgotten in the desert? Fortunately for Scott, he has one thing the others don't: the luck of the devil.
