When the small town of Zamascus is raided by a neighbouring country, a small group of children survive and are left to fend for themselves. They take to hiding from the marauding soldiers and stealing food wherever they can find it. One day they come across another group of children hiding out and being led by an adult. This man claims to come from a nearby country that is on their side. He asks the children to spy on people and slowly sets up rosters and night time manoeuvres. Little do the young adults realise, but they are slowly being recruited into an army. Before long the night time adventures include murder.
This is an action packed novel of bravery and survival. It is thought provoking,as the reader witnesses how the lust for revenge enables people to be led into actions they would never have considered previously.
