The Villain Institute
Megan Linski & Alicia Rades, author
Love is even more dangerous behind bars. Ava-Marie: My name is Ava-Marie, and I love living on the dark side. Getting into trouble is kind of my thing, but one night, I take revenge too far. I’m sentenced to a reform school for magical delinquents... though really, it’s a prison. As the only supernatural who can control both fire and water, I’m already a target. To make matters worse, I literally share a soul with Charlie, a sexy inmate from the wrong side of the tracks. Surviving at the Institute is almost as risky as falling in love. But there’s a way out. The Warden is offering a pardon for the team who wins the Darke Games— a sick, twisted competition where more prisoners come out dead than alive. They think I'm the bad guy. I'm about to show them just how much of a villain I can be. Charlie: I shouldn’t be at the Institute. I’m in here because of her— the girl who claims to own half my soul. After losing my sight, I grew up as an orphan, banished from magical society. I learned enough on the streets to survive the gangs and fight clubs inside the prison. But nothing could prepare me for the Darke Games. Ava-Marie is my worst enemy, but if we’re going to break out of here, we’ll have to get along. Yet the more I let Ava in, the more I want her. I can’t let my desire for her get in the way of my one chance at escape. Except it already has. There’s a dark power inside of Ava that terrifies me... And none of us will be prepared when it unleashes.
