"Caroline [is a] strong yet vulnerable heroine who isn't afraid to do what must be done." -- Rysa Walker, author of Timebound
Rise up. Lead them. Be a hero.
...all before your fifteenth birthday.
The United States collapsed long before Caroline Mathers was born. She's strong, mature beyond her age, but she knows nothing of cell phones, computers, or even hot showers--they're remnants of history, wistful stories told around campfires. Life as a dutiful scout has her patrolling the surrounding forests, hiding, observing, and warning the families of her tiny outpost when danger is near. They survive by sticking together. It's a quiet existence...
...until the day Caroline hears the terrifying beat of distant drums echoing throughout their peaceful valley. An army is marching. War is coming, and nothing less than the power of the Kinders could save her people now.
But the Kinders are just legends, ghosts from long ago...aren't they?
Warchild: Pawn, is a "...coming-of-age action-adventure dominated by a young girl just coming into her powers. A fine, durable, inaugural volume brimming with imagination and sparkling, inventive characters." --Publishers Weekly
The first book of the Warchild trilogy is a young adult dystopian thriller full of fast-paced action, ideal for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent.

Hope alone can not win the war.
Caroline Mathers, Forward Scout of the People's Republic of Virginia, leads her people to safety after a harrowing escape through the Appalachian Mountains. But, the security of their capitol city won't last for long...maybe even less than a night. Old friends are left behind, while inside the walls, new alliances are formed and trust betrayed.
Empowered by the strength of a massive army, their northern enemies suffocate the city outside the walls, preparing to take control of what they believe is rightfully theirs: citizen slaves.
With the help of her fellow Kinder, Finn, and an ill-equipped group of volunteer soldiers, Caroline must defend her city to the last breath or watch her people marched away in chains.
For the citizens of the People's Republic of Virginia, their last hope of freedom has faded with their spirits. The eternal rains continue to fall. Tired, hungry, and soaked to fragile bones, there's nothing left to do but march toward the only fate they have left: a life in slavery.
But not if Caroline can help it. She's out of options, but giving up was never one of them.
Facing overwhelming new challenges and old enemies, Caroline soon learns that even when the bullets stop flying, the war is never over.
