A deadly plague ravages both humans and mystical creatures alike in the divided world of Nigh. A young woman named Deiji is recruited by a mysterious necromancer named Mowat to break the spell on each of the four elements, in order to quell the fever that Mowat’s mortal enemy, Relant, brought upon the world and thereby reunite the continents.
Hoping to escape an arranged marriage, Deiji is all too eager to accept Mowat’s proposition. She leaves her simple village life behind and is thrust blindly into distant regions of the unmapped, uncharted world. She must enter the elements of fire, water, earth, and air, where she subsists on a desert island, tracks her way through the deep forest and even explores the ocean as a mermaid. She battles tigers and giant squid, all leading to the final struggle against the evil Relant himself. Only time will tell if Deiji has what it takes to meet the challenge and save her world.
