A barracks full of beautiful boys. A girl in disguise, living among them.

It’s the 14th century and everyone in Ardennes is obsessed with the archers’ guild of Saint Sebastian, where twelve of the best young Journeyman archers compete every year for a coveted spot on the prince’s bodyguard. But when 15-year-old Marieke flees to the guild for refuge, there are only two things she really knows about the place. One is that a mysterious accident ended her own father’s chances as a Journey. The other? There are no women allowed inside Saint Sebastian’s.

Disguising herself as a boy to infiltrate the guild means embarking on a dangerous deception. But it may be Marieke’s only chance to find out the truth about her father’s past, and when the charming Journeyman Tristan takes her under his wing as his squire, she’s got to stay. Soon she’s vowing to find a way to help Tristan beat out his brutal arch-rival Taran to become the next Guardsman. It’s a virtually impossible task, but it won’t be nearly as hard as keeping the vow she makes for herself: never to let Tristan find out she’s a girl - a girl, who loves him.
