Two friends. Two forbidden powers. One chance to change everything.
When Mishi is taken from her orphanage home, fears she'll never see her best friend again. And when Taka is taken to the infamous Josankō later that same day, she fears it will be more than distance that separates them.
As the girls learns to manage the elemental magic they're not supposed to have, they each stumble across the secret that the Rōjū council has spent centuries killing to keep. Now the Rōjū council wants them dead, and Mishi and Taka will have only one chance to save everything they hold dear.
But at what cost?
