An immense display of mana in front of the Knight's Order has earned Myne the attention of nobles. The result? Yet more people appear hoping to exploit the young apprentice shrine maiden's value. And so the High Priest decides to shelter Myne in the temple to safeguard her from the impending danger he foresees. But Myne's main concern is still books, and she works to advance the printing process so that their price falls and more people can buy them. Her long winter in the temple away from her family begins, but everything changes as the harsh winter passes and the spring nears, offering a glimpse into what the future holds for this biblio-fantasy.
