All of Us Villains (All of Us Villains, #1)

by Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman

You Fell In Love With The Victors of The Hunger Games.
Now Prepare To Meet The Villains Of The Blood Veil.

After the publication of a salacious tell-all book, the remote city of Ilvernath is thrust into the spotlight. Tourists, protesters, and reporters alike flock to its spellshops and historic ruins to witness an ancient curse unfold: every generation, seven families name a champion among them to compete in a tournament to the death. The winner awards their family exclusive control over the city's high magick supply, the most powerful resource in the world.

In the past, the villainous Lowes have won nearly every tournament, and their champion is prepared to continue his family's reign. But this year, thanks to the influence of their newfound notoriety, each of the champions has a means to win. Or better yet--a chance to rewrite their story.

But this is a story that must be penned in blood.

I loved this one! A top read for me this year for sure!

When I saw that it was described as Harry Potter meets Hunger Games I knew I had to read it. And it lived up to all expectations.

It’s got everything from a unique magic system, a high-stakes plot, and gruesome history. It’s told from multiple POVs but it doesn’t drag the plot down. In fact I love how we see a bit of everyone’s reasoning behind their behavior.

There isn’t too much true dark villains, but you do get angsty teens trying to live up to their families expectations who are morally grey. I have a feeling though we will get more villainy come the next book.

Ps. I am team Alistair and none of you can convince me otherwise
