MacHale, D.J. The Quillan Games.
Bobby Pendragon, fresh from a deadly encounter with Saint Dane, finds an invitation to the Games of Quillan, and off he goes to a fresh Territory. The people of Quillan are quite fond of games, and of gambling, but the stakes if one loses are grim indeed. In no time at all, Bobby finds himself a Challenger in the biggest Games of the world, where winning is everything and the losers leave in a coffin. But there is some hope: Bobby has discovered a secret underground movement, working to wrest control of their world from the fascist Corporation that rules it. Meanwhile, back on Second Earth, Bobby's friends are in trouble, and he needs to get back to help them--if he can survive.
This series gets better and better, and the stakes for the Territories have just been raised again. Essential for libraries that own the series, which should be all libraries. Deirdre Root, Ref. Libn., Middletown PL, Middletown, OH
