Blood Tournament is an unforgettable journey into the not-too-distant future. The setting is only a few years from today. That is one of the things that make the story that much more frightening since it takes place in our lifetime; that plus the gifted pen of author King Samuel Benson who draws you into his world with passionate and believable writing.

If you think this dark view of future earth is impossible, think again. I think the taking down of the World Trade Center in New York is proof that anything can happen at any time. If you think the human race has evolved past the barbaric mentality of ancient Rome, think again.

Blood Tournament is the adult version of the Hunger Games; not an idealistic view of the human race where players don’t really want to hurt each other, but the real version of the human race in the real world. It is a glimpse into how the human race responds to having total and complete power over those less fortunate.

Blood Tournament is a thrilling page turner that asks the big questions: would you kill another human being to save your own life? So you are an idealist and you said “no.” Then, would you kill another human being to save the one person in the world who means more to you than life itself.

Is it that much of a stretch to imagine the dystopian world of Blood Tournament? You decide. . Enter the Blood Tournament and find out who you really are. Highly recommended reading.

This is a gripping spin on the Hunger Games. Mr. Benson writes a moving tale, emotionally connecting us with the two main young adult characters. During the course of the story, we watch the hero (Alex) come to grips with his love for his best friend and develop into a man. Alex’s nemesis is introduced earlier in the story and is brought back for a final confrontation. He faces the worst odds and does so with courage and honor.

Mr. Benson builds a rich dystopian world that anyone would be afraid to live in. The story is filled with breathtaking action, and intense relationships and seemingly insurmountable challenges that will keep you riveted.

I was given this book as a gift because I LOVED the Hunger Games and after seeing a few of the reviews on Goodreads, I thought I'd like to give it a go.

I'll be honest, I was a bit doubtful of the comparisons to the Hunger Games that seemed to come up over and over. And I was correct in that respect. Beyond the fight to the death style of tournament that is the central focus of the story and the age of the main characters, I didn't find too much in common with the popular series. And that was a GOOD thing.

The world of the 2018 Series is a dystopian hell where the New Government owns the people in a disturbingly realistic system of life and death. There is a tournament where they recruit the citizens into a brutal murder-fest, which was handled with a sense of the macabre that I couldn't help but enjoy. The characters are flawed and more realistic that many I've seen in these sort of stories. I was invested in their plights, in the conflicts and victories of the main four. I couldn't put this book down and know that I will happily re-read it when its time for book 2!

All hail the King! This young author has actually dethroned The Hunger Games if you were to ask me. His style of writing is very easy to understand and to follow. The author does an in depth character analysis that we are emootionally bonded to the young people who must face these awful games for entertainment. As a book of this genre, the characters as well as the story is flushed out very descriptively and in an easy to follow in an understandable way. The book is full of action and excitement. The energy is high and the tension is stretched to the limits. Our author refuses to give up and in turn offers us warning of what our future could actually be like if things continue to go the way they are. It is thought provoking and provocative. I give this book 5 stars!

This is an exciting tale about a group of young people caught in a new world with new problems. I picked up a free copy from Amazon during a special for the purpose of writing a review. It is well written and pretty easy to follow. The problem is, this is just not my kind of story. I am giving it 4 stars, because I know there are people out there who will enjoy this type of book very much, and there really isn't anything too distracting or erroneous that I could see that would make it a bad book, it was just not one that I would choose out of hand - but if you are into dark dystopian stories, then by all means, give this one a read!!!

A well-developed read that had me hooked from the opening page to the end. This is the type of book that when you get to the end, you say to yourself `no this can't be over'!! The two main characters, Alex and Mercy, are placed into a situation that nobody in their life would want to have to endure at such a young age. As the energy and tension kept escalating, so did my speed of reading. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. Although it may resemble Hunger Games, there are many differences. The former is for the weak at heart, but Blood Tournament is for those who can only handle the true adventure and heartbreak of the games. I would recommend this for everyone who likes to stay up late at night reading. Believe me, once you pick this book up and start reading you will not be able to put it down. Bravo Mr. Benson for another best seller!
