Coliseum Arcanist
by Shami Stovall


GENRE: Fantasy



Adventure. Competition. A duel to the death.

While on a journey to the famous city of Thronehold, Volke Savan learns of the Sovereign Dragon Tournament. The massive celebration involves hundreds of arcanists competing for fame and glory, and Volke is determined to win.

Dark forces dwell in the city, however, and rumors of the legendary world serpent spread amongst the shadows. Whoever bonds with a god-like mystical creature will gain magic beyond compare, and the queen’s guards suspect cutthroats will use the chaos of the tournament to hide their plotting.

Unsure of who to trust, Volke investigates the terrible rumors while advancing in the ranks of the tournament. Unfortunately, the true villain may be closer than he realizes…

Praise for the Frith Chronicles!

"Absolutely brilliant."
~ Archaeolibrarian for Knightmare Arcanist (Frith Chronicles, Book 1)

"With a thoroughly satisfying ending that hints at an incredible future for the series, Dread Pirate Arcanist is an unequivocal triumph."
~ ManyBooks for Dread Pirate Arcanist (Frith Chronicles, Book 2)



Nothing hurt quite like the sharp beak of a phoenix jabbed straight into my scalp.

I growled a curse as I leapt up into a sitting position on my bed. Was I bleeding? I ran a shaky hand through my disheveled black hair and flinched when I grazed the tiny puncture wound. Some blood, but not much.

“Good morning, Volke,” the phoenix said, his voice chipper.

I took a deep breath. “Hello, Forsythe.”

“My arcanist wanted to know if you were ready to train.”

“Yeah. Just give me a moment.”

The stinging pain removed all grogginess. I couldn’t go back to sleep now, even if I wanted to. After another deep breath, I peered through the open window. The sun had yet to rise. The purple hue of the sky, dotted with a handful of stars, meant we still had an hour before dawn.

“He’s already awake?” I asked.

“He’s been determined to work hard ever since he escaped Calisto’s pirate ship.” Forsythe tilted his head from side to side. “And you did say you would train with him whenever he asked.”

Although it was dark outside, Forsythe illuminated my room. A gentle glow radiated from beneath his scarlet feathers, like his body was made of flame. The rest of him resembled a large heron with delicate features, including a long neck and a pointed beak. His gold eyes stayed fixed on me as I flung my legs over the side of the bed.

I loved phoenixes, but every time they moved around, soot fell from the smolder of fire hidden beneath their feathers. A trail of it led from the windowsill to my bed.
