Or so she thinks . . . The last powerful mage in the world, Princess Aura, is the sole witness to the Queen's plot. And she knows how to stop it. The problem? She can't do it alone.

Despite his chorus line of adulteries the couple teams up and must find a way to get to the Sky Temple before the Queen does.
