Serafina Winslow accidentally starts a fire in her school’s bathroom with her bare hands. Thinking she’s just a difficult teen who can’t get her act together after her parents’ death, her aunt Millie sends her away to the Victor Berkshire Academy for Troubled Youth. On the outside, the school seems like any other strict boarding school, but Sera soon learns it’s for shifters. As Sera questions her past and what her parents kept from her, she tries to adjust to the school and who it’s actually run by: five boys called the Vicious, who are all scathingly hot. And the Vicious leader Axton North becomes her enemy on day one.
