The Magical Arithmancy Battles

Andante Vienna never believed a Lightmaker (a tool that augments magic for battle) could be something beautiful. Traumatized by her past, she believed it was a weapon suitable only for mass destruction: the reason she why was an orphan, the very cause of her loneliness. Her hometown is obliterated during the great war and she barely manages to escape alive. She is captured by the enemy side, tortured and miraculously escapes again - only to be found by someone unexpected and sent to live in an orphanage controlled by a powerful family called the Dawsons in the big magical town of Evergreen, where she leads an ordinary life until she ends up meeting Starr Dawson - a mysterious, aloof boy who ends up changing her perspective of the world as she saw it.
