Description: Part one of Shadow of Wrath.

If survival meant murdering an innocent person in cold blood every week, could you do it? Are you able to stick the knife into your opponent’s heart while they look at you with fear in their eyes? Life in the Arena turns everyone into sinners.

When a starving and homeless boy is kidnapped and brought to a modern-day gladiator arena, hidden deep within the abandoned city of Bimini, he is forced to fight for his life. The crude death matches are a source of enjoyment for Ryker, who resides over the Arena as its vicious master. Given the name Dog, the street boy must find a way to survive, even if it means murdering other innocent kids in combat at the expense of his humanity. With every dead body he leaves behind in the pit, the blood and the violence threatens to wake a beast inside him.Allegra, a slave girl in the pits and a victim of Ryker’s constant abuse, is his only key to salvation. She has lost everything already — her family, her innocence, and her dignity — while her will to live hangs on by a thin thread. Can she save Dog’s humanity before she too succumbs to the horrors of the Arena? With death casting it’s long shadow over everyone, how can anyone survive?A tale about survival, tragedy, and human perseverance, SHADOW OF WRATH allows us a glimpse into the world of the Sins of the 7.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Looks like that isbn is already taken by this book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16... .

Is the March 2013 publication a new edition of same isbn? Or a new bookcover? Or both?

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) I'm creating as a revised edition unless I hear otherwise. Book is at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...

As the author, you can choose which edition/cover is featured on your author page, searches, etc., what goodreads calls the "primary edition" or "default edition." Just go that book page and "edit details."

(For directions on setting primary edition, see Author FAQ #4 this group at http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... or help screens at http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/31... )


Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Do you need a series created? Possibly a series "Shadow of Wrath" or "Sins of the 7"?

L.W. Patricks | 11 comments Shadow of Wrath is a series of 5 short novellas that combine into one complete story, somewhat like Hugh Howy's Wool, so I guess that would be helpful. Sins of the 7 is a separate series that is introduced by Shadow of Wrath. I'm not sure if that's confusing? Anyways, whatever works best.

Thanks once again for your prompt reply! Have a happy new year

L.W. Patricks | 11 comments sorry, Just one more comment...there is one book that has been created that might need to be removed. It's the one that is just 'Shadow of Wrath' (minus the dystopian tag). I believe someone else created that one for me. Thanks a lot Debbie!

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) The one without the Dystopian "tag" has the exact same isbn.

Are you saying that this book at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17... is part one of five

And this one at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16... is the whole book, all five parts?


message 9: by L.W. (new)

L.W. Patricks | 11 comments Yup, thats exactly it.

Thanks!

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Goodreads series information will take a bit to catch up. Series is at http://www.goodreads.com/series/94207...

Clicking both book links and series name should show accurate information.

For "Tags" on goodreads, instead of adding in book title field, shelve your books with desired tag name. For example, when looking at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16... which you have on your "read" shelf, click "edit shelves" underneath where the "read" shelf shows. Start typing "YA" and choose to "add 'ya' shelf".

Rinse, lather and repeat for "dystopian" "young adult" "dystopian ya" "science fiction" "science fiction dystopian" or whatever the appropriate genre/tags/shelves should be.

That's how some book pages are showing a "genre" or "top shelves" on the righthand side.
