“Des échos des HUNGER GAMES imprègnent cette histoire, qui évolue autour de deux adolescentes courageuses déterminées à surmonter tous les obstacles pour reconquérir ceux qu'elles aiment. C'est un monde crédible et qui nous implique. Nous le recommandons pour ceux qui aiment les romans dystopiques, les personnages féminins puissants et les histoires qui exposent un courage hors du commun.” --Midwest Book Review. D. Donovan, critique de livres électroniques (à propos d'Arène 1) ARÈNE 3 est le troisième tome de la Trilogie des Rescapés, best-seller qui commence par ARÈNE 1, disponible en téléchargement gratuit. Après avoir failli mourir de froid au cours de leur voyage vers le nord, quand Brooke et son petit groupe se réveillent, ils se retrouvent au cœur de la civilisation. Ils ont trouvé la cité utopique, qui est cachée au cœur d'une partie éloignée du Canada. Ils ont chaud, à manger, un lit confortable, des vêtements propres et ils sont en sécurité. Finalement, ils ont réussi. Au cours de sa guérison, Brooke rencontre les mystérieux survivants qui habitent dans cette ville et se disputent son amour. Elle recommence à s'entraîner, devient bien meilleure combattante sous l'égide d'un nouveau mentor et se transforme peu à peu en femme. Cependant, Brooke comprend vite que la vie ne se limite pas à la sécurité et à l'isolation. Quand elle entend une rumeur selon laquelle il y aurait des survivants qui, cachés au cœur de l'Amérique, se battent pour ramener l'ordre de l'intérieur, et qu'elle apprend que son père en fait probablement partie, Brooke se retrouve face à un dilemme crucial : vivre dans cet endroit parfait, libre et en sécurité, jusqu'à la fin de ses jours, ou partir se battre pour la liberté des autres. Elle sait que ce serait un voyage qui la ramènerait dans une Amérique post-apocalyptique. Cette fois-ci, il faudrait qu'elle aille vers l'ouest et traverse le pays à la recherche d'hypothétiques survivants, à la recherche de son père. Il faudrait qu'elle se batte pour traverser un pays transformé par l'apocalypse, pour essayer de survivre à une interminable série de dangers, de groupes itinérants de gangs violents, avec peu de ressources et encore moins de provisions. Ce serait un voyage de trois mille deux cents kilomètres, probablement une mission suicide. De plus, si elle quitte l'utopie de Fort Noix, elle sait qu'elle ne pourra jamais y revenir. Pourtant, il y a pire : il y a un obstacle sur sa route. L'Arène 3. La plus grande arène qui reste dans ce qui fut l'Amérique, la plus brutale, la plus dangereuse de toutes, celle dont personne ne ressort vivant, celle qui, comme Brooke le sait, la pousserait dans ses derniers retranchements. Va-t-elle tout risquer pour sauver les autres ? ARÈNE TROIS, roman à suspense dystopique qui présente une héroïne dont les lecteurs du monde entier sont tombés amoureux, est la bouleversante conclusion du best-seller La Trilogie des Rescapés, une conclusion qui vous fera tourner les pages jusqu'à une heure avancée de la nuit. "Addictif … ARÈNE UN est un de ces livres qu'on lit jusqu'à une heure avancée de la nuit, jusqu'à avoir les yeux qui se ferment parce qu'on ne veut pas s'arrêter." – Dallas Examiner
From Morgan Rice, #1 Bestselling author of THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS, comes the first book in a new trilogy of dystopian fiction. New York. 2120. American has been decimated, wiped out from the second Civil War. In this post-apocalyptic world, survivors are far and few between. And most of those who do survive are members of the violent gangs, predators who live in the big cities. They patrol the countryside looking for slaves, for fresh victims to bring back into the city for their favorite death sport: Arena One. The death stadium where opponents are made to fight to the death, in the most barbaric of ways. There is only one rule to the arena: no one survives. Ever. Deep in the wilderness, high up in the Catskill Mountains, 17 year old Brooke Moore manages to survive, hiding out with her younger sister, Bree. They are careful to avoid the gangs of slaverunners who patrol the countryside. But one day, Brooke is not as careful as she can be, and Bree is captured. The slaverunners take her away, heading to the city, and to what will be a certain death. Brooke, a Marine’s daughter, was raised to be tough, to never back down from a fight. When her sister is taken, Brooke mobilizes, uses everything at her disposal to chase down the slaverunners and get her sister back. Along the way she runs into Ben, 17, another survivor like her, whose brother was taken. Together, they team up on their rescue mission. What follows is a post-apocalyptic, action-packed thriller, as the two of them pursue the slaverunners on the most dangerous ride of their lives, following them deep into the heart of New York. Along the way, if they are to survive, they will have to make some of the hardest choices and sacrifices of their lives, encountering obstacles neither of them had expected—including their unexpected feelings for each other. Will they rescue their siblings? Will they make it back? And will they, themselves, have to fight in the arena? ARENA ONE is Book #1 in the Survival Trilogy, and is 85,000 words.

Three months ago, I was forced to marry the president's son, Bishop Lattimer—as all daughters of the losing side of the war are sold off in marriage to the sons of the winners. But I was different.

And this time, it is not enough to just survive...
