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