Synopsis for The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World
Everyone knows the mightiest soldier, the Ice Blade Wizard, who led the country to victory three years ago, but few know his real name: Ray White. After overcoming a bloody war, Ray enrolls in Arnold Academy, ready to experience a normal life, a luxury he never had. To achieve this, he keeps his identity as an ice blade mage a secret, and the scars of the past still haunt him to this day.
Despite being ostracized for being a commoner, Ray befriends the proud but kind Amelia Rose, the muscular Evy Armstrong, and the shy and bookish Elisa. However, a conspiracy lurks within the walls of the academy, and Ray is tasked with hunting down a spy whose motives remain unclear. To protect his new friends and the people he holds dear, Ray will do whatever it takes, even if it means facing his past.
