Publisher's Summary

From debut author Katharyn Blair comes a heart-stopping fantasy novel, perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare and The Young Elites, about a teenage runaway who enters a dangerous tournament with an impossible prize.

Vesper Montgomery can summon your worst fear and turn it into a reality - but she’s learned the hard way that it’s an addicting and dangerous power. One wrong move and you could hurt someone you love.

But when she earns a spot in the Tournament of the Unraveling, where competitors battle it out for a chance to rewrite the past, Vesper finally has a shot to reverse the mistakes that have changed her forever.

She turns to Sam Hardy, a former MMA fighter who’s also carrying a tragedy he desperately wants to undo. However, helping heal Sam’s heart will mean breaking her own, and the competition forces her to master her powers - powers she has been terrified of since they destroyed her life.

Why am I even reviewing this book?! I don’t want it to be over. I loved spending time in Vesper’s world and there are so many people there I want to know better. Please keep these coming!

One of the best in the genre

I used to work in YA movie marketing, and I had to learn the genre inside and out. It’s been a few years, but I picked this up because it looked interesting, and it rocked my world. Blair delivers a truly feminist protagonist that manages to be flawed without falling into the YA tropes of insecurity and self-doubt.

Fantastic!

The narrator does a great job capturing the voices of the characters! The plot is wonderfully twisty and the romance is swoonworthy without being cloying.
