Ever since magic caused his mother’s death, Ha-Neul hates witches and the powers they wield. As crown prince of Balhae, he has instituted harsh laws against all magic users.
When Lisa, a young witch who hopes to gain freedom for her people, begins working undercover as a servant in his palace, the last thing the two expect is to fall in love. However, when Ha-Neul learns that Lisa is not only a witch but daughter of the prince of Vires, land of witches, he banishes her. Distracted by his heartbreak, he’s caught off guard by a military coup.
In hiding and on the run, Ha-Neul swallows his pride and travels with his siblings to Vires, planning to beg Lisa’s aid, only to learn she has mysteriously vanished.
Now his only hope in reclaiming his kingdom and reuniting with Lisa lies in the remote Northern Mountains, a country no outsider has ever accessed and rumored home of a formidable source of magic. There, Ha-Neul learns that a being powerful beyond comprehension is willing to help him in his quest. But if Ha-Neul can’t let go of his hatred of all things magic and accept the new path offered him, it will mean the destruction of his entire world.
