Iolanthe's normal life as a mage is interrupted when Atlantis seeks to capture her. Who would someone want a mage who could only control fire, water, and earth? Nobody. Ostensibly that was her elemental mage leve, but underneath the deceptive identity her adopted father wove for her protection is a destiny that Iolanthe can't hope to escape. When she encounters Prince Titus....well a boy with such a destiny certainly changes the outlook of things. Together the powerful pair work for the downfall of the Bane, a notorious head mage over looking Atlantis, in the hopes of a better future for their kingdom.
