The reign of magic is broken. A technological revolution sweeps across the land, and the once invincible Magi caste has been usurped by factory owners and railroad tycoons. Industry spreads like wildfire across the country, and the source of magic recedes in its wake.

Together they must survive the battle raging around them long enough to unravel a twisted political conspiracy before all magic is extinguished forever.
