Wizard and Thief
Aluna is a thief - that's all she knows how to be. In a world of towering mountains of trash, constantly looming soot and gigantic pests, it's the only way she and her loyal dogs Cubby and Mickey can survive. Together they are a force to reckon with - that is, until they choose the wrong person to steal from.
Leo is a Magus, and as far as he knows, he may be the last. Living in a particularly secluded train car in an ordinary trash valley, he studies all he can from the Book of Light, a book filled with concoctions and strategies that Mages before him pored over for centuries. His training is only just beginning, and without a mentor, the road is a shaky one. He thinks the tales of the prosperous land Evimeria told in the beginning of the book are a forgotten legend, or simply a myth - until a creature from that very place comes to steal the book. Which just so happens to be the same fateful night in which he is visited by a stubborn thief.
Although the two are very different, the events of that night leave them destined to figure this out together. Reluctant as he is to share his secret, Leo knows he must, and as much as Aluna doesn't want to trust him, Cubby and Mickey unfortunately do. As the two set off in search of the Book, they learn that the dreamland of Evimeria is not fake at all - but it is far from what it used to be.
