Fire and Song
The Iron Prince will claim his crown.
Reidon Ward’s first semester at the Galens Institute hasn't been without reward.

After all… The Sectionals tournament has arrived.
Rei, along with Aria, Viv, Catcher, and a couple unexpected squadmates, are about to face the first real battle of their careers.
