The blockbuster co-writing debut of Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman, All of Us Villains begins a dark tale of ambition and magick...
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 worldwide spotlight. Tourists, protesters, and reporters flock to its spellshops and 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.

The tag line for this series is Hunger Games with Magic-sold. Give this to me like yesterday. For me, the reason Hunger Games was a big draw is not only the drama of pitting teenagers against teenagers for one to win; it is also the heart and soul that comes from the characters from the circumstances they have been placed in. In All of Us Villians, the prize is control of high magick, and the test is held within the stories that the seven families have fed their children since birth. There are seven landmarks, seven relics, and a whole set of rules that surround this curse that plagues the town and one contender who should not even be there wants to end it all. The secret of this curse has been hidden from the world, but now a tell-all book has leaked every delicious fact of it—all eyes on who will win at the end of the three-month competition. I was on the edge of my seat, devouring each page, wondering just who was going to betray who. Could the curse be ended, and who wrote the tell-all book teased at the top of the chapters. All of Us Villians is delicious, dark, and worth every minute of reading time, and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.
