The sorority girls are real witches.
From New York Times bestselling authors Kass Morgan and Danielle Paige comes a thrilling, dark contemporary fantasy about a prestigious sorority of witches and two girls caught up in its world of sinister magic and betrayals.
At first glance, the sisters of ultra-exclusive Kappa Rho Nu - the Ravens - seem like typical sorority girls. Ambitious, beautiful, and smart, they're the most powerful girls on Westerly College's Savannah, Georgia, campus.
But the Ravens aren't just regular sorority girls. They're witches.
Scarlett Winter has always known she's a witch - and she's determined to be the sorority's president. But if a painful secret from her past ever comes to light, she could lose absolutely everything...
Vivi Devereaux has no idea she's a witch. So when she gets a coveted bid to pledge the Ravens, she vows to do whatever it takes to be part of the magical sisterhood. The only thing standing in her way is Scarlett, who doesn't think Vivi is Ravens material.
But when a dark power rises on campus, the girls will have to put their rivalry aside to save their fellow sisters. Someone has discovered the Ravens' secret. And that someone will do anything to see these witches burn . . .
When 18-year-old freshman Vivian Devereaux, who is white, pledges elite Kappa Rho Nu, known as the Ravens, at Savannah's Westerly College, she makes friends for the first time after a life of frequent moves with her tarot reader mother. But alongside the intense sisterhood, Vivi learns that she's a Pentacle, one of four types of elemental witches with fierce earth-commanding powers. For Vivi's sorority big sister, Scarlett Winter, a water-wielding Cup who is Black, junior year means balancing her family's impossible expectations, boyfriend Mason's waning interest, and a secret that could destroy her entire future. When a banished Raven, Gwen, reappears and a sorority sister is kidnapped, Scarlett and Vivi work to defeat the evil threatening to expose their coven to the college and the world. Morgan (The 100) and Paige (the Dorothy Must Die series) blend the cloistered atmosphere of The Magicians with the Southern cattiness of The Belles, adding pops of giddy magic "glamouring" the sorority house into a 1920s speakeasy along the way. Though the series starter's conclusion drags, wonderful worldbuilding, well-executed plotting, and page-turning surprises create the feel of a bingeworthy TV show, keeping readers engaged in Vivi's and Scarlett's alternating narrations. Ages 14 up.
