Ramping the horror of The Hunger Games up to a whole new level, Herman’s electrifyingly dark thriller sees rival families compete in a deadly tournament for control of their city’s magick supply.
After the publication of a salacious tell-all book, the remote city of Ilvernath is thrust into the spotlight. Tourists, protesters, and reporters alike flock to its spellshops and historic ruins to witness an ancient curse unfold: every generation, seven families name a champion among them to compete in a tournament to the death. The winner awards their family exclusive control over the city's high magick supply, the most powerful resource in the world.
In the past, the villainous Lowes have won nearly every tournament, and their champion is prepared to continue his family's reign. But this year, thanks to the influence of their newfound notoriety, each of the champions has a means to win. Or better yet - a chance to rewrite their story.
But this is a story that must be penned in blood.
