The adventure begins in Book One of this coming-of-age series.
Vetch is training to be a knight in a magical world. But he's afraid of battle and reluctant to hurt others. He's also nervous around girls. He's kept his fears from his friends but knows at some point he'll be revealed for the coward that he is.
Led by a sorcerer, a massive army of men and inconceivable monsters attack Vetch's homeland. With no idea of the extent of the enemy's power, Vetch struggles against impossible odds to keep himself and those he cares about safe.
Can a young warrior with a too-gentle heart survive?
