Once upon a time, there was a girl who fell in love. An unexpected, unrequited lover saw this love and lost his mind, ruining her life to take her away and keep her all to himself. In a frightening turn of events, this sparks the beginning of a long and arduous journey with the girl and her little brother to get back home from the land of gods and monsters.

In this first journey, Gene is violently taken from Ella on an egotistical man's whim. In order to get to Gene, Ella has to face facts: She needs to gain power to overthrow the entirety of the Disciples of Mihaci, governors of both religious and non-religious ordeals in their world. In a world of magic-users called magi who use relics (and, long ago, grimoires), can a magus whose only power is to absorb information and forget it shortly thereafter defeat the Honored Disciples of Mihaci?
