Publisher's Synopsis:
With a chip in his head and hundreds more throughout his body, sixteen-year-old Carl Freeman was turned from an orphan with impulse control issues into a super-soldier. Still trapped in the Phoenix Force, he begins to fear he’ll never escape after months of training on Phoenix Island.

He's sent on his first off-island mission: to compete in a Blood Sport-style combat tournament that pits kids against kids in gruesome fights. The volcano island known as Devil's Pocket is a secret hidden place, but strangely there he sees Octavia.

When the truth of the tournament, and of Octavia's role in it, is finally revealed, Carl just may get the escape he's looking for after all. That is, if he can survive the brutal competition.

John Dixon is a former Golden Gloves boxer, youth services caseworker, prison tutor, and middle school English teacher and uses these experiences as inspiration for his books. Dixon lives in a suburb of Philadelphia.  Visit his blog at and find him on Twitter at @JohnDixonBooks.

My Thoughts
This is the second installment, with Phoenix Island telling the beginning of the story (it was a good book, so make sure you pick it up and read it).  Carl is back and well respected by his peers.  Still trying to figure out a way to leave, he once again is thrown into circumstances he rather not be in.  Scenes and characters are vivid and will have you turning pages to find out what happens next.  Another good one!  I Rated This Book:  4/5 Stars ****
