Eff was born a 13th child. Her twin bother - Lan - is the seventh son of a seventh son. This means he is supposed to possess amazing talent - and she's supposed to bring doom to everyone around her.
Undeterred, her family moves to the Frontier, where her father will be a professor of magic at a school perilously close to the magical divide that protects settlers from the beasts of the wilderness.
Eff and Lan do not know what awaits them in such a place - there are steam dragons that hover in the sky, and strange creatures that undermine the settlers' existence. Eff learns magic with the other students, but there's always the threat of something going terribly wrong. As Eff and Lan grow older, they face challenges they never could have dreamed of.
And then their magic is put to the test in a stand-off that will change their lives forever.
