Valerie Darkmore's entire life has been building up to this moment-her initiation into the Marionettes, the prestigious league of witches sworn to serve the vampires. As one of the last remaining blood witches, her spot is almost guaranteed. At least, so she'd thought.
The academy is full of sabotage and secrets as the tasks begin, and Valerie quickly realizes she has more than her spot on the line. Her survival seems just as uncertain.
The closer she gets to the final trial, the more she learns everything-and everyone-around her isn't quite what it seems.
The Marionettes is the first in a series.
