After a magical eruption devastates the kingdom of Belwar, royal heir Adraa is falsely accused of masterminding the destruction and forced to stand trial in front of her people, who see her as a monster.

As Sophia tries to make sense of this news, and the web of lies surrounding her, she begins to question everything.
