Although Joel is spellbound by the magic of Rithmatics, he is not gifted, unlike others. Undeterred, he coaxes Professor Fitch to teach him magical theory. But he still can't infuse his shielding lines and circles with authority, or bring his chalk-drawn beings to life, but he's fast to master the fundamental geometric guidelines. His distinctive expertise will soon face an unexpected test when the best Rithmatist students are taken hostage from his Academy. Since he's not a magic worker, Joel seems to be safe, but he is adamant about investigating the case and proving his mettle. But people start dying and Joel gathers he will require the help of Rithmatist beginner, Melody. Can they stop the killer together before it is too late?
