ALKA CHELRAZI IS ON A MISSION:
1. Infiltrate Blackwater Academy
2. Win the Great Game
3. Burn Wizard society to the ground
As a child, Alka witnessed her parents’ brutal murder at the hands of Wizards before she was taken in by an underground rebel group.
Now, Alka is deep undercover at the most prestigious school of magic in the Republic: Blackwater Academy, a place where status is everything, where decadent galas end in blood-splattered duels, where every student has their own agenda.
To survive, Alka will have to lie, cheat, kill, and use every trick in her spy’s toolkit. And for the first time in her life, the fiercely independent Alka will have to make friends in order to recruit the misfits and the outcasts into her motley rebellion. But even as she draws closer to victory — to vengeance — she sinks deeper into danger as suspicious professors and murderous rivals seek the traitor in their midst, and dark revelations unravel her resolve.
Can Alka destroy the twisted game…without becoming a part of it?

Wow! From the first page I was hooked! I couldn’t put it down and finished it in just 3 days – totally sad that it was done.
Alka is such a fierce MC. She’s out for revenge and isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty!! In the first chapter she takes someone’s life all in the name of the mission.
She’s going to infiltrate Blackwater Academy and burn it to the ground. In Morovia, Wizards are superior and Humbles (those without magic) are servants. Even though Alka is a Wizard she doesn’t believe the way they do. She plans on making some changes.
Once she gets to Blackwater she learns that it isn’t as simple as she thought, there’s hierarchy after hierarchy and not all Wizards are the same.
I love the emotional journey we take with Alka, she’s so believable and real. She has inner turmoil and questions her actions frequently. The other characters are all so very unique and the whole dark academia vibe flows beautifully.
The plot twists and turns are remarkably laid out. The story ends with finality but there’s still room for a book two (I hope!) I would love to see more of this world and these amazing characters.
