Fantasy / Teen & Young Adult
In a world of magical instability, four high school students are chosen every year to enter the Ivy Labyrinth and try to break its hold on the planet by solving a series of complex challenges and riddles. Most never come out. Now, a new four have been chosen: the quiet intellectual, Kristy; the dutiful son, Kai; the impulsive best friend, Brianna; and the highly reactive screwup, Ash. In a high fantasy, Hunger Games-meets-Maze Runner serial, there's no telling what obstacles will come up next.
Why I Chose it
I like the idea of a labyrinth that might kill everyone who enters and yet requires sacrifices. Sure, this is is obviously influenced by Hunger Games (and I assume Maze Runner as well, though I don't know anything about that one), but it's going to be the characters that make or break this. There aren't any plots that haven't been told before.

It feels like they haven't updated the "Featured in Kindle Vella" list for a really long time, but maybe I'm just imagining that...
