A century ago, my family was the elite of the magical community, the backbone of the mages. Then came the plague and the war, ravaging the world. When it was finally over, the mage Houses came out of hiding and divided the resources left.
Now, I live on the fringes of society, stealing to provide for my aunt and brother. But today is the day that things will change. With the end of the term and an opportunity to work for the best firm not owned by the supernaturals, life is finally looking up.
Except, when life seems too good to be true, that’s because it is.
Blackmailed and backed into a corner, I have no choice but to pull one last heist.
Success means exposing my forbidden magic, but failure can cost me the lives of everyone I love.
