Though destined to live out his days in slavery, Kwil desires nothing more than to study magic. His natural talent will not be denied, and he seeks any chance to practice his craft. If he’s discovered, the penalty is death. Humans are forbidden to learn magic in the land of Gi’gata.
Determined not to live the life her father has planned for her, Nera dreams only of making music and escaping from his watchful eye. In Kwil she finds a kindred spirit, a trapped soul yearning to break free from the rules of society. Together they must abandon their former lives and search for the knowledge they both crave.
