Gerrit is the son of Bourshkanya's Supreme-General. Despite his powerful storm-affinity and the State's best training, he can't control his magic. To escape the brutal consequences, he flees.
Celka is a travelling circus performer, hiding both her link to the underground and her storm-affinity from the prying eyes of the secret police. But Gerrit's arrival threatens to expose everything: her magic, her family, and the people they protect.
The storms have returned, and everything will change.
