Two young people in their first year of university, drawn to each other’s passion, establish a secret society to pursue those ideals. But as time passes, the demands of a world that isn’t kind to dreamers threaten to force them apart, filling the void between them with shattered hopes and the fallout of lies. A tender, tragic tale about the cruelty of youth, by acclaimed author Yoru Sumino.

Yet from the moment the handsome Prince Kyle lays eyes on her, he’s convinced that she’s the long-awaited Holy Saint destined to banish darkness from his world. Aira herself maintains significant doubts. Is she really up to this challenge? She might be able to use magic, but is she really a Saint? Aira’s fears and struggles only deepen when the woman summoned alongside her begins to look more and more like the one who truly deserves that title.
