The year is 2032.
The Octagon engineers have been tasked with creating a new concept, a game to entertain the executive elite and society's most wealthy and privileged.They were given only three requirements: It must be brutal, it must be fast and there can only be one winner.As a result of their design, the first prototype of the Dominion was born.
The test site for the first Dominion is to be the desolate and abandoned Harvard University campus on the banks of the Charles River, a haunting place of crumbling buildings and overgrown courtyards.
Sixteen death row inmates have undergone six weeks of intensive combat training and will be the guinea pigs for this first Dominion.
There is no escape for them. The site is ringed by a disintegrator fence and they have just two hours to reach the end.
But what the engineers didn't plan for was a woman named Magnolia Gray and she has a completely different game she wants to play . . .
Soldiers Field is a fast-paced "fast-read" prequel to the Octagon Trilogy.
Every nightmare has a beginning.
