The magic has returned. But not all of Orïsha is rejoicing. While the maji and the nobles dance in celebration, those who never had their powers awakened and those who never did anything to deserve this life thrust upon them are succumbing. As violence rocks the city ahead of a brewing war, it will be up to Zélie and her friend Amari to save those that they love most – no matter the cost.
With magic back in the land of Orïsha, Zélie and Amari are determined to use their newfound power to stop Adimu’s efforts. But as Zélie’s brother Olunyan goes missing, she is torn between the two sides of her family. With dangerous forces amassing against her, can she find the strength to defeat them?
In the magic-graced land of Orïsha, it is said that the lost king of Orïsha sent six children to lead his people. One such child is Zélie, a young and intelligent girl who has longed to follow in her father’s footsteps as a maji and use her abilities for good. But before she can do so, their world is devastated by an event known as the Fire Day – when a rebel with dark magic suddenly emerges from their midst, raging against the ruling power of the maji. Desperate to save those they love from this new threat, Zélie and Amari embark on an epic journey beyond Orïsha, risking everything for one last chance at vengeance on those who destroyed everything they knew.
The people of Orïsha have suffered under many hardships, including the terrifying Seven Who Rule. But as a new generation returns to reclaim magic of the land, that evil’s shadow spreads ever wider. Those who oppose it are branded traitors who must fight for their lives to survive. As Izilé and her family are forced out of their home, Zélie and Amari discover a dangerous secret demanding their assistance from afar – or face doom in the upcoming battle.

With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.
