A beautiful day set aside for fun and excitement, two brothers – Robert and Timothy head off to the local village to enjoy the festivities. Darkness prevails and the two brothers find themselves captives of the Huctan army; the killers of all things Botan.
With the assistance of a young girl, both brothers are determined to escape and return home. However, they go from being prisoners of the Huctan army to being prisoners of a rebel group created to protect Botan and all things Botan. Joining the group of rebels, the two brothers are faced with whom to trust and where their allegiance lies. Unknown to them, they have just joined a group built on lies and deception. Sworn to protect Botan these boys are trained to become a Thane by learning to manipulate, deceive and move with stealth and deadly force all to protect Botan. They are faced with life and death decisions with each mission they venture on.
“I swore, then,” he said, that the Huctans would never break me the way they broke Fenae. That I would never so much as cry because of them. That I would hurt them, if I could, but they would never hurt me.”
The lies and deceptions come full circle when the boys are yet again separated and faced with the treacherous Huctans.
“Something in Haberd had suspected from the moment the council meeting was called. Maybe it was the convenient way that someone forgot to notify him of the meeting, or the twinkle of surprise in Verinald’s eyes when Haberd arrived.”
Can the brothers come together once again and save those that are depending on them? Can they save Botan?
