It's hard to belong to the wizarding elite in a world where technology has overtaken magic and society believes you're no longer needed. Liss Ilios has always followed the rigid teachings of her father, who is obsessed with restoring the honor long lost to his family. Delfos Osmu has lived in the shadows, overshadowed by his dazzling twin sister. Despite being the firstborn, his familiar spirit, Mictanlí, has yet to show up to give him his powers. The Tournament of the Great Families is drawing near. It will be broadcast on screens around the world and discussed on social networks. Liss must make sure to stand out, but she still can't cast her family's signature spell: Bastion. Delphi will have to face the most powerful wizards of his generation without knowing how to use his magic. Also, the world of the two young men is shaken when Mictanlí appears to offer Delphi his elusive deals, and Liss finds a mysterious note that affirms a terrible truth: the royal family has a secret that has been hidden for millennia.
