El has trained all her life to do two things – to fly the skies on wings of roaring flames, and to burn her enemies to the ground. Now, having graduated the academy, she’s ready to do both those things.
…until she’s dispatched in the opposite direction of the war effort. To a city named after vegetables of all things. Seriously, who names a place after those? But, despite it being a routine mission, El and her unit find a new enemy waiting for them. One who isn’t afraid of a little fire.
With the war now on two fronts, El and her friends must use every spark of magic they have in a high-flying gambit against an enemy bearing a truth that threatens her faith – and a choice that threatens her nation.
And, if she’s lucky, maybe she’ll even find a good sandwich along the way. That’d be a real win.
