K'Zarina of the Olkanian Clan is on her wander, a tradition of her people where young adults find their place in the world. Idyllisus, an Earth like planet, was settled by transhuman colonists thousands of years ago by a people whose DNA was modified for their dangerous mission, and their descendents have long forgotten their starfaring colonial past. In Sydjordal, those who are discovered with these latent attributes are labeled as witches and put to death. After K'Zarina, new to the city, is attacked, a strange blood trait is exposed. Now labeled a witch, for K'Zarina it's a dangerous place in the world, but is it dangerous for her, or everyone else?
