Publisher's Summary

Shane Ryan’s ultimate battle is about to begin....

In back alleys and hellholes across the world, ravaged souls and scarred warriors whisper of the Iron Tournament. A savage game of death, pitting living fighters against caged spirits, all for the amusement of a mysterious audience.

But a new challenger is about to enter the ring—ghost hunter and retired Marine Shane Ryan. He’s never backed down from a fight. And he’s not about to start now.

When a mysterious invitation arrives on his doorstep, Shane finds himself swept into a world of underground death matches, supernatural gladiators, and tortured souls. And in this sadistic arena, there is only one rule: Winners live, and losers die....

But Shane quickly discovers a sinister presence behind these dark, bloody battles.... A ravenous force that feeds on death and suffering.

Can he defeat this supernatural enemy in mortal combat before it unleashes unthinkable carnage upon the world?

Or will Shane have to back down from a fight for the very first time?

Exciting

The dark shadows at play around the story are what I look forward to having revealed as this story progresses more! This glimpse into the Iron Tournament was interesting, and engaging. New characters with interesting skills and backstories who hopefully make further appearances in this world. Bring on the next!

Shane Ryan is simply fantastic!

I loved Ron Ripley and Ian Fortey’s, Duel of the Damned! The story is simply fantastic! Together Ripley and Fortey weave a tale with all the imagery one has come to expect of the often cynical, always charming, Shane Ryan of Berkley Street fame. They have built a cast of great characters and a well written story that makes for a 5-star review so full of action and suspense that I couldn't stop listening. Every free moment was spent lost in the tale of how Shane Ryan had to once again pull his fat out of the supernatural fryer so to speak, and prove his worth whether he wanted to or not.

This time finds Shane really not wanting any of it! But he finds he has little to no choice. Shane has been invited to a very special, one of a kind event, called The Iron Tournament where living fighters are pitted against bound spirits in a savage fight to the death. The winner of course gets to live on to fight another battle. And so on the tournament progresses until the last man or ghost is standing.

It was an absolutely amazing story! Certainly one of my favorites, not soon to be forgotten. And one that I would happily recommend for some good light hearted entertainment.

Can't stop listening

This book was not what I expected. Tournaments with ghost. The main character is not mussed, and I really enjoyed his feelings on the fighting with ghost. I feel like I would be in the same since of humor on what is happening. I recommend this book.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

Shane is back!!!

Worth the wait for another Shane Ryan adventure! This ramp had me on the edge of my seat wondering if they finally got Shane for good. Scare Street brought the heat and nail biting with this book. It's a must read.

Jacinta to the rescue

I love Shane’s interactions with ghosts. He receives mysterious package with an evil pirate ghost an invitation to the Iron Tournament where the loser dies and he needs to destroy the ring leaders Guthrie and Lazarus, but is it over. Cannot wait for Death's Cathedral and to see if Jacinta continues to communicate with ghosts

Great book !

The books Scare Street put out are awesome books. My favorite are the books with Shane Ryan. This one is very good. I think with 2 authors writing this the writing is somewhat different than when just Ron Ripley is writing about Shane. It is still an excellent book. The book is read well by the narrator. It will keep you engaged ....... it's very exciting. You won't be disappointed !
