To have a lot of friends, to be active in various activities, and to enjoy her teenage days. That’s what Naira wants when she moves to Gandaloka. However, her meeting with Gesta disrupts all her plan. Naira is wounded in the midst of Gesta’s fight with a Demit. Gesta shared some of his powers to Naira to save her life. Even though Naira survives, she becomes a half-Demit. Instead of joining the school organization, Naira has to deal with her newfound powers and wings. Naira stays away from Gesta, angry at what he’s done to her. But Gesta can’t walk away from her, because Naira is still in danger.

Even though it looks like an ordinary city, Gandaloka keeps a big reserve of magic. Magical beings called Demit have lived there for a long time. They live among humans, in their human forms, following the human lifestyle. They befriend, avenge, and fall in love, just like humans. “Magical Tales of Gandaloka” records their stories.

Uti edited “Halfie” as one of the five novels released simultaneously under the shared universe of “Gandaloka”, an intellectual property initially created and owned by NaoBun Project. As the co-creator of the Gandaloka universe, she also served as a lead editor for the other three novels and wrote one book in the series.
