It's a new year and Gauntlet finalist Codi James is back for round two.
With her new position at the top ranked Battlecast Academy and with last year's victor no longer competing, it seems like the fates have aligned to give Codi a clear run at winning the tournament once and for all. Armed with state of the art equipment, a rigorous training schedule and a scholarship fund to let her focus on nothing but the Gauntlet all year round, she has one goal: first place.
But this year the game has changed. She's not the plucky underdog anymore. Codi has the weight of expectations on her shoulders, and there are those who view her leap to fame through jealous eyes. This year her battles won't be confined to the arena, and now she has everything to lose.
