I don’t know who I am. I don’t know how I got here. All I do know is if I stop running, I will never be free.
When I burst from the woods into a rush of headlights and asphalt and open night sky, I think I’ve made it. I’m free. I’m safe. Then blinding energy explodes in front of me and the last thing I see before it all goes dark is a handsome face hovering over mine. Yay me, right?
I awake to find myself magicked to a hospital bed with some non-handsome guy telling me my magic is uncontrolled and dangerous. The way they see it, the choice is simple: enroll in their magic academy and learn to manage my power or spend the rest of my life in a cage.
And that’s how I land at Protectors Academy, a cut-throat magic boarding school where the heirs of the rich and important rule while they compete for an elite position on the borderlands.
So I’m not free, but I am not safe here, either. I’m being followed, a group of mean girls is on my case, and four of the hottest guys on campus don’t know what to do with me. And that’s before I’m attacked and the entire school blames me for burning down my own dorm room. All I want to do is pass their tests and get out of here. But first, I have to survive.
