From debut author Katharyn Blair comes a heart-stopping fantasy novel, perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare and The Young Elites, about a teenage runaway who enters a dangerous tournament with an impossible prize.

Vesper Montgomery can summon your worst fear and turn it into a reality—but she’s learned the hard way that it’s an addicting and dangerous power. One wrong move and you could hurt someone you love.

But when she earns a spot in the Tournament of the Unraveling, where competitors battle it out for a chance to rewrite the past, Vesper finally has a shot to reverse the mistakes that have changed her forever.

She turns to Sam Hardy, a former MMA fighter who’s also carrying a tragedy he desperately wants to undo. However, helping heal Sam’s heart will mean breaking her own, and the competition forces her to master her powers—powers she has been terrified of since they destroyed her life.

While this book doesn’t bring anything completely new to the table (and it was not a cover buy for me), I liked it all the same, especially the last half. It was a little slow to start in getting interesting but by the time Vesper Montgomery comes across the Tournament of the Unraveling things kick up a notch. The book turns to the tournament and the Oddities (those with powers) and an underlying second story takes form. Clever friendships are begrudgingly created and romance grows. What started as maybe three stars ended at 3.5, worth rounding to 4 and looking forward to book 2.
