Little witch girl at school one night has a dream that winter isn't coming because someone is binding the winter spirits and gods.
But she cannot get anyone to believe her because she's young and a first year student. But more and more she sees signs that she's right. Finally she goes to see an old sorceress who is considered crazy by everyone. But the last has the books, knowledge and power needed.
The lady gives the girl the benefit of the doubt on her dream and they summon a winter spirit. But the pages change from a circle to a line and the winter spirit appears bound. The vision was true. Someone is binding the winter spirits so that winter cannot come.
Unfortunately now the only ones who know are a young girl and a crazy sorceress
