Each year, the North American Confederation of Mages assesses every sixteen-year-old novice. Some will be chosen. The rest must undergo a procedure to destroy their magical ability unless they prove themselves in the mysterious and brutal Mages’ Exam.
Disadvantaged by her parents’ low standing, Rocío Lopez has dedicated herself to expanding her considerable talent to earn a place in the Confederation. Their rejection leaves her reeling—and determined to fight to keep her magic.
Long ashamed of his mediocre abilities, Finn Lockwood knows the Confederation accepted him only because of his prominent family. Declaring for the Exam instead means a chance to confirm his true worth.
Thrown into the testing with little preparation, Rocío and Finn find themselves becoming unlikely allies—and possibly more. But the Exam holds secrets more horrifying than either could have imagined. What are the examiners really testing them for? And as the trials become increasingly vicious, how much are they willing to sacrifice to win?
The first in a new series by USA Today bestselling author Megan Crewe, Ruthless Magic combines the magic of Harry Potter with the ferocity of The Hunger Games alongside a poignant romance. Fans of Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, look no further for your next urban fantasy fix.
Hell hath no fury like a goddess scorned.
When the gods get upset, Lady Hel has a way of breaking loose!
Sif is a struggling college student caught in-between the gods for an epic battle. All is well until both Lady Hel, the goddess of death, and Thor show up to pay her a visit.
Lady Hel has not been restored to her kingdom, as promised. Instead she is still exiled on Earth. With time on her hands, she’s stuck on the idea of family, and her discarded kin, when inspiration hits. She doesn’t need to wait for Ragnarok to come for the gods to receive their comeuppance. No, there is no time like the present to hit them where it hurts – their champion Thor.
Thor’s in trouble with Odin, the All-Father, for disobeying his orders -close to treason. And, he’s also found his way to Midgard just in time.
All roads lead to Sif, and she’ll have to choose sides, heart or honor, carefully, or mankind will pay the ultimate price. Broken promises spark enmity.
And when stuck between two gods, how’s a woman to choose?
