"The Market Festival has come to the city of Housman, where a fabulous blade known as the 'Demon Sword' is put up for auction. Recently knighted Cecily Campbell's newest mission is to guard the sword at all costs. There's just one problem: the sword has the mysterious ability to transform into a beautiful woman knows as Aria. Still, it's all fun and games at the festival, and Cecily and Aria become fast friends-- until a huge fire demon appears! The demon will stop at nothing to steal Aria, even if it means reducing the entire city into ashes. Can Cecily and her companion Luke--the Sacred Blacksmith--save the citizens of Housman from a rampaging demon and its sinister plan?"--Page 4 of cover.
