Assault or Attrition (The Arena Mode Saga, Book 2) by Blake Northcott

Thanks to an inoperable tumor pressing against his brain, Matthew Moxon was left with few options for survival. In 2041 his only chance was a multi-million dollar nanotech procedure – a price tag far out of reach until he entered ‘Arena Mode’: a no-holds-barred fighting tournament reserved for super-powered beings, where the winner would become one of the wealthiest people on the planet. 

Moxon escaped the grueling event with his life, as well as the grand prize...but en route to crossing the proverbial finish line he was forced to kill Sergei Taktarov: a superhuman with a legion of followers who considered him the Second Coming. 

In the aftermath of Arena Mode, Moxon retreats to Northern Canada in search of solace, unaware that he’ll soon be hunted by religious extremists, bounty hunters, and entire governments – all in search of the one known as 'The God Slayer'. 

Reviews for the Author

"Blake Northcott's Arena Mode series grabbed me from the first page and wouldn't let go. She's telling a story about unique characters in a unique world, and she's doing it with a unique voice. More, please." – Mark Waid (Kingdom Come) 

"Blake Northcott is the most exciting new voice to come to superheroes in over a decade. She's got a brand new angle on this material. I genuinely think she's going to be a game-changer." - Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Wanted) 

"Sometimes you get a chance to jump on board a writers career at the start, before everybody else discovers how good they are. Blake Northcott is that opportunity. So jump on her already...wait, just read her books." - Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son, Deadpool)
