If you could gain almost limitless power by risking probable death, would you?
Maydijira is a land forged by huge imbalances of power. Only a unique magical system—the Crown-Magic—brought peace and united the races by letting sovereigns negate all magic in their kingdoms. However, powerful groups unhappy with the system begin pursuing Shimurli, a girl gifted with unusual powers, in the hope that she can undermine the realm.
When the task to save the system falls to Shimurli and three others—an unconventional princess, a gifted but bitter swordsman, and a military engineer intimidated by his own ordinariness—each will have to overcome their personal demons and learn to work together to rise to the occasion... or face the consequences!
I'm targeting an older YA audience, so in film terms, PG-13 is the goal. My personal view is that it's valuable to discuss mature themes in stories, although I'm bothered when creatives add "adult content" needlessly to raise sales. I prefer to avoid potentially distressing subject matter unless there's a thematic or plot reason to go there. I also think there's a difference between tastefully giving just enough information that the audience can understand what's going on, and portraying something in unflinching, graphic detail. But I have some mature themes and intense scenes planned, and it will fall to me as an artist to judge how to maintain that delicate balance.
