Because at Basgiath War College, everyone has their own plans and there are only two ways to get out: to graduate or to find death.

"Forget-me-not - What was lost so far"
Although he actually wanted to protect her from the dangers of the hem, this does not stop Matilda from throwing herself headlong into the adventure. Because there are urgent questions they need to clarify: Is there a secret society behind the death of Quinn's father? How do you tame a sphinx? And what about the scheming new classmate? And is it even possible to be in love if your life is constantly in danger?
Hanging out with fairies, walking through portals into a parallel world, and possessing superpowers is something Quinn has gotten used to. It's just a shame that every secret he uncovers presents him with new puzzles. If it weren't for Matilda and her very special way of getting to the bottom of things, he would be completely lost.
