High school junior Alex has nothing left of his father but his sword. Until a strange boy appears out of nowhere (literally) and steals it. In his attempt to get the sword back, Alex is unwittingly dragged into a magical criminal underworld full of hotshot gangsters, cold-blooded assassins, untrustworthy magic teachers, badass bartenders, magic battles & swordfights, fancy cars, every flavor of boba tea, and ancient secret societies...and hanging over it all is the mystery of his father's disappearance, which Alex has to solve if he wants to survive! Contains BL, but romance won't be the focus of the story. Content warnings: foul language, (non-graphic) violence, blood, sexually suggestive (non-explicit) scenes, drug & alcohol use Updates Wednesday.
