Synopsis of Burn The Witch
Historically, 72% of deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to most people. Although unknown to most, some people have faced these dragons. Only residents of Reverse London who live on the hidden “reverse” side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a select few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to come into direct contact with them.
The protagonists of the story are the witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), a dragon conservation and management organization. Their mission is to protect and manage London’s dragons on behalf of the population.
