In Meli, if you're born with the wrong magic the Purifiers rip it out. They'll etch a black flame into your skin, labeling you a Burnt Child. Elaria is one of those Burnt Children. But Elaria has a secret. She can see magic.
Soon, Elaria is hunted by Purifiers, befriended by a murderer, and haunted by a ghost. With her powers growing, Elaria must choose to either save herself or the world.
