Summary from Goodreads:

The Blood Moon rises. The Blood Veil falls. The Tournament begins.

Every generation, at the coming of the Blood Moon, seven families in the remote city of Ilvernath each name a champion to compete in a tournament to the death.

The prize? Exclusive control over a secret wellspring of high magick, the most powerful resource in the world--one thought long depleted.

This year, thanks to a salacious tell-all book, the seven champions are thrust into worldwide spotlight, granting each of them new information, new means to win, and most importantly: a choice - accept their fate or rewrite their story.

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

The best way I could explain this book is a magical hunger games, but without the games.

There was so much potential with this story. A magical tournament between the families, where the champion fights to the death. You would think this would be exciting, but most of the story is told during the pre tournament leaving the story a bit off kilter. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book. It had a wonderful pace and characters, but with all the build up, the end was a bit of a let down.

This was still a wonderful read that had many twists and turns. Its written well and the story was easy to follow. Even though I wanted more from the tournament, I'm still happy to have read this story.
