Publisher's Description

* Christy Award Winner
20th Anniversary Edition *

A Journey She Did Not Choose Will Change Her Life Forever

Transported surreptitiously to a terrifying alien world, with limited resources and only a few cryptic words to guide her, Callie Hayes finds herself engulfed in a perilous battle for freedom – for her very life. After agreeing to participate in a routine psychology research experiment, she must unravel the mysteries shrouding her only route of escape or risk succumbing to the deadly deception of the Arena.

A mesmerizing journey through the treacherous terrain of a strange and terrifying world. A powerful allegory that will capture your imagination with its timelessness and aching familiarity.

Editorial Reviews

"Karen Hancock’s intense story is an excellent though edgy contribution to the genre." — Publishers Weekly
-- Publishers Weekly

"A classic in the making for the modern era, with appeal for fans of C.S. Lewis and Kathy Tyers, this is required for all collections." — Library Journal
-- Library Journal

"A progression of faith by trial somewhat like Pilgrim’s Progress… [Hancock’s] theological argument, while certainly Christian, is quite subtle… She can take her place in the wave of fine science fiction coming from evangelical presses these days." — Booklist
-- Booklist

"The genuinely enthralling mix of adventure, romance, and vivid imagery fused with spiritual symbolism invites readers to lose themselves in Hancock’s imaginary world… engrossing and well-paced." — Christianity Today
-- Christianity Today

"Arena sets a benchmark for contemporary allegory—thoroughly imagined, intelligently written, and as vivid as last night’s unsettling dreams. Well done!" — Kathy Tyers, author of the Firebird series, Star Wars: Balance Point, and Star Wars: Truce at Bakura 
-- Kathy Tyers

"Through vibrant description and well-paced action, Karen Hancock creates a compelling world of both horror and hope. Arena gives Christian fantasy lovers something to cheer about." — Brandilyn Collins, bestselling author of Eyes of Elisha
-- Brandilyn Collins

"When other books are long forgotten and out of print, I believe people will still be reading Arena. It’s destined to be a classic." — Rene Gutteridge, author of Ghost Writer
-- Rene Gutteridge

"An allegory for the third millennium! If you liked Pilgrim’s Progress and The Matrix, then you’ll love Arena." — Randall Ingermanson, co-author of Oxygen
-- Randall Ingermanson
