From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Hang a Witch comes a thriller set at a secretive boarding school where students are trained to carry on family legacies that have built--and toppled--empires. Think Umbrella Academy with teenage assassins.
November is as good as dead. She just doesn't know it yet.
At the international Academy Absconditi, there's no electricity, no internet, and an archaic eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes range from knife throwing and poisons to the art of deception. And the students? All silver-spoon descendants of the world's most elite strategists--training to become assassins, spies, and master impersonators.
One is a virtuoso of accents--and never to be trusted. Another is a vicious fighter determined to exploit November's weaknesses. And then there's the boy with the mesmerizing eyes and a secret agenda.
November doesn't know how an ordinary girl like her fits into the school's complicated legacy. But when a student is murdered, she'll need to separate her enemies from her allies before the crime gets pinned on her . . . or she becomes the killer's next victim.
From New York Times bestselling author Adriana Mather comes the first book in a thrilling new series that will leave you breathless.

If you’re looking for a page turner, here it is!!
Wow!! I bought this book yesterday and couldn’t put it down. I thought it was going to be similar witchy vibes the other books are and found out it wasn’t. It was a pleasant surprise actually, the plot and all of the scheming and mystery was amazing to read and it unfolded to us at it did to Nova. What an amazing read, I can’t wait for more books. This world will be interesting to read about, we need to know if she finds her dad and I have my suspicions Ash has more invested in Nova than just a relationship.
