Sividious Stark and the Stadium Between World (Paperback)
by Greg Park
Sividious Stark is your average, run-of-the-mill fourteen-year-old: smart, mischievous, and above all, logical. Nothing especially interesting happens to him— until the day he’s thrown into an adventure beyond his wildest imagination. Pursued by a gang of bullies out for revenge, Sividious escapes to the woods where he comes face-to-face with Aya, a winged, blue, mythical creature in grave danger. She entrusts him with an All Access Pass to a place between worlds and pleads with him to save her from “The Games.” Moments later, mysterious Agents drag her into an abandoned mine, where they disappear in a flash of light. Resolved to find a rational explanation, Sividious enlists the help of his best friend, Jackie, to test the power of the pass. When they find themselves transported across time and space, they’re thrown into a realm that defies all logic. It doesn’t take long to realize that the beings they’re dealing with aren’t the things of fairy tales: unbeknownst to human kind, an intergalactic battle has been raging in which creatures are enslaved and forced to compete in a battle to the death. Determined to save Aya from this fate and stripped of the logic he’s clung to, Sividious has only one hope—the one thing he’s resisted—magic. Armed with a power he never knew he had, will one young man have the courage to follow his heart and challenge the dark forces of the galaxy?
