A deadly competition.
A chance for revenge.

After a vampire murdered her mother, Ava swore to get revenge. But it's been ten years since anyone has even seen a vampire.

When Ava stumbles across a magic show, she witnesses impossible illusions. Sneaking backstage, she discovers an ancient secret society with true magic. They will teach her how to hunt vampires if she can prove her worth. Now, she must put on the performance of her life in a sinister competition: one where illusion and reality blur, and the stakes are deadly.

But vengeance is finally within reach . . .
