In stories of old, the people of Raushida waged war against the elements, sealing away all remaining magic in the world.
In days of old, people waged war against each other, depending on the Mender caste to do whatever was necessary to bring soldiers back from the cusp of death.

One young woman named Marah stands against the encroaching plague, struggling to control newfound magical powers that threaten to either cleanse or destroy anything they touch. Fighting internal demons regarding her mother’s role during the war as a Mender, she challenges the idea of donning the Mender shawl herself. Her younger sister, Bethel, challenges Marah’s stubbornness by keeping her in check with wit and snarky one-liners.
The two young women embark on a journey to discover the root of Marah’s powers. Along the way, they make new friends and are faced with revelations even Marah’s powers can’t overcome. Is Marah’s magic the key to halting the outbreak before it swathes the world in darkness or will her powers bring about the end of days?
