This is the story of Amalia di Danti. This is the story of the young woman who had the courage to doubt everything she believed, in search for truth and justice. This is a story about the impact of fear and terror, how it warps the minds of otherwise kind people. This is the story of what happens when power is left unchecked.

In order to protect the people of Jaborre from the dangerous threat posed by the black arts, the government installs watchmirrors on every street corner. The penalty for practicing black magic is death. Amalia is the daughter of a high-ranking government official, and as such believes wholeheartedly that black magic is the most wicked of all evils. When she stumbles upon evidence to the contrary, she is confronted with an uncomfortable question: why was black magic really banned? Her answer to that question thrusts her into the midst of a growing rebellion and civil war.

I plan on writing 4 seasons, each with an over-arching story-line. The seasons and their episodes are loosely planned so I know (generally) what will happen.

Please take note of the trigger warnings page.

    • I’m a senior in college, and that’s a huge time sink at the moment. This is definitely not abandoned. 🙂 I’ll post an official note somewhere, but I’ll probably go back to writing during December when I have my winter break.

    • Still a hiatus. Funfact about the author: I’m a freelance illustrator, on top being a student. The other reason has a lot to do with the fact that I really don’t want to write the next chapter. I’m considering just skipping to the Lawrence Pelorian arc, because I’m not even sure the next chapter is even necessary.
