This book has it all: Satanism, unicorns, magic! Okay, well, maybe not Satanism, but it does have the other two!
Angsty, gay teen Ryan and his gothy best friend, trans girl Alison, decide to perform a vengeance spell, from a mysterious book they find, on a group of bullies. After they cast the spell, an earthquake shakes their home town of Chicago, and they're subsequently whisked away by agents of the Marduk Institute, a top secret government organization that seeks to "cultivate" the powers of wizards.
Once at "the institute" they meet a diverse cast of characters including Ryan's crush, hot/cold "straight" boy Hunter, and skateboarding enthusiast Blake, who develops feelings for Alison. The world of wizards is full of cruel students, such as the elitist Legacy members, and bizarre dangers, such as the mysterious Asuras.
But what happens in our magical, coming-of-age love story when Ryan starts being stalked by a sinister entity in his dreams? Can Ryan's friends save him from an enemy that can't die?
If you like the Percy Jackson series, Mortal Instruments, and ,of course, Harry Potter you'll probably enjoy this book.
