Where magic is dark and gritty, characters troubled and twisted, and victory comes at a heavy price.
Deep under the City of Glass in the frozen southern land, an age-old machine radiates a power which locals call icefire.
Most citizens are immune to it, but a few, always born with physical disabilities, can bend it to their will. For fifty years, the ruling Eagle Knights, who fly on the backs of giant birds, have killed these Imperfects, fearing the return of the old royal family, who used icefire to perform evil magic.
Across the border in steam-age, science-focused Chevakia, people have built barriers to protect themselves from the radiation, which kills them.
Chevakia also harbours the old southern royal family’s only surviving members, and they are planning their return to power, taking both countries to the first war in fifty years.
