Off Campus by Charles E.P. Murphy and Jeff Westwood

If these teenagers don't unite, they're all going to die.

Ken Sakamoto's girlfriend has been abducted by a necromancer and the only way to get her back is to play the monster's game. The youngest son of a British military family who is decidedly not in the military, Ken is already out of his depth in American college. Will he dare place his soul on the line for someone he's known for a month? How can he not?

Worse, he's not alone: Josh Hartman, all-American athlete whose oldest friend cannot love him back, is in the game too. They’ve both been told only one can save their girl.

But Lizzie Higgins won't wait for Josh. She won't wait for anyone. With everything she has, Lizzie is breaking herself and the other hostages out, and organising them to fight their way through every trial and creature in their way. What she doesn't know is that she's not saving anyone - she's just made them all part of the necromancer's trials. And now he's looking right at her.

All will suffer through the warping of flesh and reality, all will risk their lives and souls, and most won't be coming home. But if these teenagers don't break the rules and stand together, nobody has a chance in hell.

Murphy and Westwood unleash a tale of relentless horror and violence, and no one is safe.
