THE GODS WE KNEW by Winnie Lyon
A cult of vampires. A coven of witches. An eternal war.
Zella Armstrong came to college expecting parties, girls, and new friends with no knowledge of witchcraft. But when her best friend Summer is attacked at a party by a clan of Vampires, she exposes her magic; the cardinal sin of her coven. As it turns out, the vampires are required to deliver new fledglings every six months to Maisie and Harvey, the heads of a top-secret vampire compound.
And after a century, they’re sick of it.
Zella, Summer, and the vampires team up to take out the compound, but the deeper they go, the darker things get. Ancient secrets and divine betrayal unfold as it becomes clear that no one is who they claim to be—or who they think they are. With Zella’s magic on the line for her crime, working with the vampires is the only thing that can save her. Between witchcraft, peril, and romance, the fate of magic itself lies in the hands of some reckless college kids.
