Step back in time to the age of King Penda, when the kingdom of Mercia was born. Life in Anglo-Saxon England is far from fair. There are strict classes that all people fall into. At the top there are the kings, then the thanes. After the thanes come the warriors, then the ceorls, and at the very bottom are the slaves. Women are not equal to men; and then there are the prisoners. With Mercia breaking away from Northumbria and war stirring the blood, there are a handful of boys that want to change their lot in life and move from being slaves to warriors. Wayland, Halsey and Channing are the sons of slaves that have the chance to change their stars and train with the sons of the ceorls to become warriors in Snot's army. Ravinger, the youngest son of Snot, has been put in charge of their training. But all is not well in Snotingas. Kipp, Morven and Nyle are prisoners of Snot, captured sons of the Thane's of Northumbria, and they are determined to cause as many problems as they can for their captors. Though the sons of Snotingas are preparing for battle, the sons of Northumbria still have to contend with the daughters of Snotingas.
