His last word was for Lyra, his seven-year-old daughter, to be locked from the light. She was stowed away in her bedroom for the next ten years. He died the night he gave his last wish, and all she wants to do is escape it. When Lyra does she has no idea what is after her. Old letters start to make sense once she meets the rare subjects, Elementals. Even on different sides, hating each other, nobody to trust, they find something. That one thing is a legacy of six people. The game changes. Lyra is pushed back to the palace. She can't play her part for the world. Lyra is one of them.
