A long-lost heir just discovering her powers. A college of vicious magic. These villains have never met anyone like her…

When mages slaughter my parents in front of me, I have no time to mourn. The murderers drag me to a brutal college where I learn I’m the heir to a royal family of dark magic. I’m destined to manipulate the world through fear—and to stand beside the four scorching-hot, arrogant young men who rule this school.

Unfortunately, I’m having trouble locating my supposedly wicked skills.

Whether I want to or not, I have to tap into my talents fast if I want to survive. The students here are even more vicious than the teachers, and my fellow heirs are worst of all. The four of them crush anyone who doesn’t kowtow.

No way will I bow to any ruthless royal, no matter how alluring. They can turn on the charm or tear me down, but they can’t break me.

I don’t care about ruling. I don’t care about magic. But I’ll take what I can get to avenge the people I loved.

The moment I master the dark power inside me, I’m razing this place to the ground.

Royals of Villain Academy: Books 5-8

A brewing magical war. Four impossible loves. Can we conjure a happy ending?

I was starting to think I knew what I was dealing with at the university best known as Villain Academy. I’d come to believe that by owning my role as the last remaining Bloodstone, I could change this place for the better. Then a series of shocking revelations turns everything I believed on its head.

The other scions have my back now, with all the trouble that’s brought them. How much more will they have to sacrifice before we can find some kind of peace? I’m ready to fight for my newfound life, my family, and the guys I’m falling for… but this battle may bring more casualties than I can bear.

Do I have the defiance in me to overthrow centuries of magical tyranny? Looks like it’s time to find out.

*This set contains the final four books in the Royals of Villain Academy series—Corrupt Alchemy, Foul Conjuring, Grim Witchery, and Vicious Arts—plus 30+ pages of exclusive bonus scenes.*

Cruel Magic (Royals of Villain Academy #1)

Cruel Magic

I didn’t think anything could be more horrifying than watching mages splatter my parents’ blood across our kitchen. I was wrong…

When the same dark mages drag me off to a college called Villain Academy, I learn that I’m the long lost heir to a royal family of dark magic. I’m destined to manipulate the world through fear—and to stand beside the other heirs: four scorching-hot, arrogant young men who rule this school.

I don’t want to use a power that feeds off people’s pain, but I have to master my shaky talents fast if I want to survive. The students here are even more vicious than the teachers.

And my fellow royals are worst of all.

No way will I bow to any villain, no matter how brutally alluring. They can turn on the charm or tear me down, but they can’t break me.

I’ll use whatever darkness I find inside myself to take this place down.

Vile Sorcery (Royals of Villain Academy #2)

Vile Sorcery

In a month, I’ve gone from magicless to one of the most powerful dark mages in the world. You’d think that would make my life easier.

But all that power is only potential until I learn how to wield it, and my enemies have a huge head start. While I’m picking up every skill I can, adversaries both within Villain Academy and beyond it are working to knock me down.

My fellow scions? I can count at least a couple of them among those enemies. The others… Let’s just say the lines between light and dark have gotten a lot more blurred.

Nothing’s safe here—not my mind, my heart, my magic, or the few people who’re proving themselves my allies. When the danger turns deadly, will I be able to save all of them and myself?

Sinister Wizardry (Royals of Villain Academy #3)

Sinister Wizardry

Do I want to spend my summer with my vicious classmates at Bloodstone University—better known as Villain Academy? No, thank you. But I’ve got to find a way to tackle my enemies before they try to destroy me again, and the trail to potential answers starts there.

I’ve had it with taking the high road, though. Come at me, and you’d better believe I’ll hit you back just as hard. Maybe that’ll mean I have to tap into my dark magic instincts more than I’d ever have planned to, but I’m not letting one more person I care about get hurt.

That also means I’ve got to steer clear of the one guy I completely trust, or I might ruin his life too. With two of the other scions vying for my attention and the last shifting his campaign against me in an unexpected way, I’ve got my hands full as it is.

I can’t say whether I’ll survive everything this summer has in store. All I know for sure is it’s going to be a hot one.

Horrid Charms (Royals of Villain Academy #4)

Horrid Charms

Every time I turn around, new opponents are looking to knock me down. No part of the magical community is safe. And now my enemies have left me with a horrible accusation hanging over my head, using so many tricks I can barely defend myself.

If I want to clear my name and keep my freedom, I have to turn to the guys who once made my life hell. They’ve changed their tune and made amends, but how far can I really count on them? Especially if they discover that my greatest foes are within their families.

I’m going to have to find out. The truth can’t stay hidden forever. But no matter what the villains in the university and beyond it throw at me, I won’t give in. I’m the last of the Bloodstones… and hanging onto that role may be the only way I can save everything that matters to me.

Corrupt Alchemy (Royals of Villain Academy #5)

Corrupt Alchemy

I was starting to think I knew what I was dealing with here at the university best known as Villain Academy. Not so much. But can I really trust a shocking revelation from someone who’s proven to be my enemy?

There’s no way to answer that without diving in. If my mother is still out there alive, I have to uncover the truth. Even if it means putting myself back in the hands of the mages who’ve betrayed me before.

The other scions have my back now, with all the trouble that’s brought them. How much more will they have to sacrifice before we can find some kind of peace? I’m ready to fight for my newfound life, my family, and the guys I’m falling for… but this battle may bring more casualties than I can bear.

Foul Conjuring (Royals of Villain Academy #6)

Foul Conjuring

Having my birth mother back in my life? To say it’s a big transition is an understatement. Especially when she’s basically a stranger to me, and I’m not sure yet whether I can trust her to be any more maternal than the average fearmancer parent (which, spoiler, isn’t much).

Unfortunately, the other barons aren’t giving me time to ease into the situation. They’ve turned their sights on my fellow scions and newfound lovers, putting them under fire from far too close to home. As if that wasn’t enough, an unsettling plan is unfolding that threatens every student on campus.

I’m starting to think there’s more at stake here at Villain Academy than I ever suspected. While I’m facing uncomfortable revelations at every turn, can I find the strength to protect everyone I care about?

Grim Witchery (Royals of Villain Academy #7)

Grim Witchery

I’ve won one victory against my enemies, but it seems the barons are just getting started with their new, vicious schemes. They’ll stop at nothing to expand their power.

Any move I make to oppose them could have horrible consequences for both me and the guys I love. My only hope is playing along until the right opportunity comes my way.

There’s a chance I could sway my mother if I can earn her trust. She may be brutal when she feels she needs to be, but I’ve seen glimpses of a softer side underneath. Can I walk the line between obedience and resistance without losing so much more than I already have?

Vicious Arts (Royals of Villain Academy #8)

Vicious Arts

The battle lines have been drawn. My fellow scions and I stand on one side, and the power-hungry barons on the other.

The scheme they’ve put in motion could shatter both our community and the nonmagical world. Neither I nor the guys I love are willing to let that happen, but with the barons throwing both laws and parental bonds aside, we’re short on options. The fate of our world could come down to a literal battle for our lives, one I’m not sure we have any hope of winning.

Will the strength we’ve found together and the allies we’ve managed to gather be enough to carry us through? How close to the barons’ level will I have to sink to have a chance at victory? As our time runs out, the only thing we can count on is that blood will be spilled—and lots of it.

And don’t miss the spin-off trilogy, Traitor of Villains, starring Cressida Warbury, Noah Ashgrave, and a mysterious new hero…

 

Crooked Magic (Traitor of Villains #1)

Crooked Magic

Hero. Traitor. It all depends on which side you’re watching from.

When the vicious ruling mages launched a war against their heirs, they tore the magical community in two—and I walked out on my family to stand with their enemies. You could say I was championing compassion over tyranny, but really it was pure self-preservation.

Two years after our victory, I’m tutoring a way-too-charming heir who’s totally off limits, dodging my parents’ vengeful spells, and trying to figure out where I’ll land after graduation. My once-prestigious ancestry isn’t doing me any favors. Most of my peers look at me with more suspicion than warmth.

Then a mysterious, brooding man arrives on campus with news of a conspiracy that could destroy our newfound peace. To unravel it, I’ll have to reconnect with the dark side of our community. Disavow my few friends. Woo the mages who idolize my family.

If I fail, they’ll probably kill me.

By now, I know there are worse things than death. And this might be my one chance to prove I’m more than a traitor—to my allies and myself.

But with the charming heir and the mysterious brooder along for the ride—two bad ideas I can barely resist—and a horror from my past rising from the ashes, I’m in way over my head. Will I win the day? Ha. The real question is, how much am I going to lose?

 

False Augury (Traitor of Villains #2)

False Augury

I thought I was fighting to prove myself, but it turns out I’ve been duped. The traitor betrayed… I guess there’s a certain poetic irony to that.

Unfortunately, neither poetry nor irony is going to get me or the guy I inadvertently dragged into this mess to safety. I’ve got nothing left to bargain with. So when the worst of our betrayers offers us a way out, what choice do I have but to take it?

There’s a long journey ahead of us, one I couldn’t have been prepared for. One that’ll require I somehow trust the last person I want to. One that’ll push all three of us to our limits—with no guarantee that we’ll make it to the end alive.

Rebel Destiny (Traitor of Villains #3)

Rebel Destiny

My enemies have dug their claws into me far deeper than I ever realized. All I wanted was to help the people who’ve supported me so much… and instead I’ve become their greatest threat.

With every expert the barons can draw on struggling to pick apart the strange magic lodged inside me, while one of my new lovers is forced to keep his distance, I can’t help wondering if my parents have won after all. I’ll be lucky to even survive the next few weeks.

But that means I don’t have much to lose. Cressida Warbury was once one of the ruling mean girls of Blood U. I gave up my bullying ways, but maybe it’s time to bring the bitch back—and turn her lose on the villains who thought they could destroy me.
