If only it were that simple.
The House of Ascension isn’t for the fainthearted. I must survive three deadly challenges to secure my place as queen—and that’s not counting the Potentials ready to stab me in the back.

Someone is murdering Potentials and blackmailing the Masters. The worst part? They’re framing me for it.
A serial killer is on the loose, human traffickers are on the hunt, and a mysterious hooded man is making deals with devils everywhere. To top it all off, a fire has torn through the Verdant Plateau, and I have no doubt it all ties back to House Jupiter.
Distractions lie in the arms of four gorgeous men as deadly as each other. I cannot fall for them, but my conviction teeters on the edge of a sharp blade.
I’m walking a fine line between pleasure and pain, but I’m doing it my way. I have a murderer to find and answers to seek, and I don’t care if I get a little bloody on the way.
I’m an Auger, after all, and death is a family affair.
