In a world where magic is strictly divided along gender lines, with men dominating the arcane arts and women relegated to domestic roles, two unlikely individuals challenge the status quo and forge an unbreakable bond amidst a backdrop of danger and intrigue.

Onna, a young woman with an extraordinary talent for spellcraft, defies societal norms and excels in her studies, surpassing even the most skilled male students. However, her abilities are met with suspicion and hostility, as women are not permitted to wield such power. Undeterred, Onna sets sail for the city-state of Hexos, seeking a place where her talents will be recognized and nurtured.

Tsira, a troll outcast with a hidden magical gift, yearns for acceptance and a place to belong. When she stumbles upon a half-dead soldier in the snow, she forms an unexpected bond with him. Together, they embark on a journey to unravel the mysteries of their shared past and uncover the truth behind a series of mysterious murders that threaten to tear apart their newfound friendship.

As Onna and Tsira's paths intertwine, they find themselves drawn into a world of political intrigue, hidden societies, and ancient prophecies. They must confront their own prejudices and fears while navigating a world that is not ready for their unique powers and the profound connection they share.
