Lumika, known around the world as the city of magic, is also home to the prestigious Lumika University, a leading institution in magitech research. However, not everyone who attends Lumika U is there for an education. Some are looking for recognition, and some are looking for revenge. Still others are only passing through on their way to bigger and better things.

All first-year student Shyn Shirolei really wants is a fresh start and access to Lumika University’s unparalleled libraries. Unfortunately, as the daughter of a seer, she knows better than anyone that life seldom unfolds as planned. When a body falls from the sky on her first day on campus, she finds herself caught in the middle of events that seem unsettling even for a school where furniture walks around on its own and memories can be kept on trees. With a roommate who seems like she already has her entire life figured out and a new friend who seems obsessed with the magical relics of the legendary Spectral Court, Shyn’s first semester as a university freshman is turning out to be a lot more complicated than she had hoped. 

“There’s a shadow over the university,” Shyn’s mother had told her. If only she’d paid more attention.
