Walls surround the city, hemming the citizens in and protecting them from what is beyond, but they are far from safe. So-called witches run rampant within the walls, hunted by the Inquisitor and his Guards who fear the powers their prey possess.

They grow closer while they deal with the difficulties of their lives brought on by their fathers and the growing conflict between witches and Guards. Can their relationship survive the struggle?
