As war draws closer, the first shots have already been fired at Axis University. The attacks have thrown three students together into an unlikely alliance: Blake, scion of Darkness; Keisha, servant of Light; and Aki, a wildcard with powers that don't fall anywhere on the continuum. That alliance grows tenuous as Aki's powers turn sinister, Keisha desperately searches for a deadly imposter on campus, and Blake has to pay his debts to Darkness.
This semester, the students face a bigger threat than attacks from outside - the faculty are taking sides and they aren't afraid to use their students as pawns. This time, they're not going to stumble into someone else's battle: they're the target.
This book was more difficult than the others, because for the first time my beta readers were extremely divided on multiple issues. I tried to write something focused directly on the university, with less of the plotlines from other realms so that I could wrap up several things ongoing around campus. And of course, I was able to do a mystery plot the way I wanted to, even if it wasn't necessarily a good idea...
