Russian-inspired epic of magical revolution & romance
Empire. Revolution. Magic.
Gerrit is the son of the Supreme General of Bourshkanya, but he can't control his magic. When he's told to create magicially-enhanced weapons, he does the unthinkable; he runs away.
Celka is a travelling circus performer, hiding her links to the underground revolutionaries and her storm-affinity from the prying eyes of the state. But Gerrit's arrival threatens to expose everything; her magic, her allegiances, and her secrets.
The storms have returned.
