The end is coming for the town of Agora, founded on principles of commerce and fair trade, where anything and everything is bought and sold, including emotions, and the only untouchables are the debtors. Agora's founding document, the Midnight Charter, tells of an antagonist and a protagonist, who will determine the city's fate.

Two children, Mark and Lily, may or may not be the ones to fulfill the prophecy in the Midnight Charter. Mark is the only-living child of a fisherman, who sells him to obtain medicine for himself, Lily an orphan with a mysterious past. For a short time, they are on the same path, then their lives take widely divergent directions, and yet manage to keep intertwining.

So far so good, but there had better be a sequel. Otherwise, too much was left unresolved.
