Bees are disappearing from the pages of the ancient manuscripts in Council dimension and from the outside world, threatening its very existence. Jaden navigates alchemy''s complexities, but the more she learns, the more she begins to question Council practices. Erasure - a procedure designed not only to remove individuals from Council dimension but also from the memories of other alchemists - troubles Jaden, and she uses her ingenuity to remember one of the erased people.
