In a world where magic has supplanted science, those that can use it become the new upper class, while those that can't are cast out into the world, barely getting by. Eric, the last scientist, sets out to change all that, to restore a balance lost decades ago. But when a young mage is killed in front of him, he must struggle to get away from the dogged pursuit of the Mage Authority and coerce anyone he needs to in order to finish his quest. Even those that would work against their own interest in the process.

Bethany is the leader of her investigative team of the Mage Authority. When she gets assigned the case of the wrongful death of a young mage, she is thrown down the rabbit hole of conspiracies and intrigue. Will she be able to find the mage responsible before the politics of the guild system forces her to arrest the wrong man?

Ardith is broke and in debt. Despite her own abilities, the world of magic just wasn't working for like it should have. So, when the mysterious man appeared with promises of silver, she jumped at the chance to make some money. It was her first real work out of the academy, but if she isn't careful, it may be her last.
