It's the year 2057, and the planet's climate crisis has passed the point of no return. Fires rage, cities drown, cancer rates soar, and the population is forced to live nocturnally. Humanity's last hope lies with a coven of teenage witches. There are just two little problems: these kids are tapping into forces more powerful than they could ever imagine — and, they don't exactly know what they're doing.
