A young girl, Abigail, lives in a city whose borders were closed many years ago because of an epidemic of a mysterious disease. Abby's father was one of the sick - and he was taken when she was six years old. Going against the authorities to find her father, Abby learns that her city is actually full of magic. And that there are those who wish to have it eliminated forever, by labeling it a disease. Those infected are mysteriously taken away without a trace.
Then one day, Abigail discovers in herself extraordinary magical abilities.
