After the mysterious disappearance of his parents, Kris is forced to carve out a life on his own in the city of Aerilguard. For most of his life, he has managed not to draw too much attention from the City Guards. As someone who possesses magical abilities, Kris is often looked over or forgotten, which suits his needs just fine. Then Kris’ entire world is changes.
