An interesting introduction to the complex society that governs the country of Adara which has a military system that includes women in positions of power and wielders of magic called naitans along with their respective bodyguards challenged by other countries such as Tibre which disdains magic use in favor of mechanical and scientific methods and consider women to be incapable of holding positions of authority. Various denizens of each country discover that they have to shed their preconceived notions and accept the fate that a mysterious omniscient power has conferred upon them while they try to rid the world of the demons that incite violence and chaos. An intriguing tale that keeps adding new players to the mix while only revealing parts of the quest that begins with the naitan Kallista Varyl developing fantastical powers and follows her while she becomes a pied piper to various different inhabitants of her world.
