Stiles is ten when his mom dies. He's also ten when he's kidnapped by a radical group of supernatural creatures looking to turn him into a child-soldier to bring about a new world order. He must survive the hell fires of captivity under a deranged man if he has any hope of escaping and returning home to his father and friend. But even if he did manage to make it back in one piece, a lot has changed since he left. . . Then again, so has he.
