Fish balanced on the chair's arms, grabbed the rope and began to climb. The entrance to the hole was a tight fit and he was halfway inside when the quetzel bit his ankle. He kicked out at its razor sharp teeth. Then from the outer cave he heard a bellow of fury. "I will kill you Outcast! I will boil you alive!"
It is as the golden-clawed bear predicted... the three of them will plunge deep into the heart of the Wilderness Mountains in search of Ari. But to pass through the Southern Zone alive, Fishy must beat Thief, the Champion of the Southern Zone in their Mighty Arena.
Revisit the world of The Outcast, where the Zoners' youth serve the Megas for seven years, scavenging a living in the Arid Zone. Follow the three Outcasts as they set out to rescue their friend from a short life with the Wilderness gypsies and discover the Oriacans, the Swan King and the finger-eating Punisher.
