The quiet cycle of life in the forested realm of the Skarure is shattered by the outbreak of war between the British and Colonial forces, and the old alliances of the Haudenosaunee are split, pitting brother against brother, even within the clans. Thrust into this maelstrom, young Joseph Killeen will rely upon an unexpected community to decide not only what is right and wrong, but ultimately, who he even is.

This is a highly readable and fascinating account of the Indian tribes who were displaced and forced to align themselves with either the British or Colonial forces during the American Revolution. It presents the Native American perspective as well as that of an Indian captive, the latter through the character of Joseph Killeen. This duology marks it as an intelligent and poignant work of historical fiction. I definitely intend to read more of this series!
