Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Magic or Die by J.P. Jackson

Magic or Die

"This is a thrill ride, and quite well written."

James Martin is a teacher, a powerful Psychic, and an alcoholic. He used to work for the Center for Magical Research and Development, a facility that houses people who can't control their supernatural abilities, but left after one of his students was killed, turning to vodka to soothe his emotional pain. The problem is he still has one year left on his contract.

When James is forced to return to the CMRD, he finds himself confronting the demons of his past and attempting to protect his new class from a possible death sentence, because if they don't pass their final exams, they'll be euthanized.

James also discovers that his class isn't bringing in enough sponsors, the agencies and world governments who supply grants and ultimately purchase graduates of the CMRD, and that means no profit for the facility. James and his students face impossible odds--measure up to the facility's unreachable standards or escape.
