Coerced into working for the sector's powerful gang leader Saint Willow, Aza Wu again gets caught up in underground magic tournaments, this time using magic she cannot control.
Aza Wu regained her magic-- but it has come at a great cost. After the Tournament of Casters, Aza is able to pay off her parents' debts. Unfortunately, the cost of the gathering spell she used to strip Finch of his magic has put her permanently in the employ of the gang leader. Aza has been doing little errands using real magic-- collecting debts, putting the squeeze on new businesses in the district. Saint Willow is nothing if not ambitious and having Aza as a fighter is much more lucrative than as a fixer... especially if she can control the outcome. -- adapted from jacket
