A prehistoric world where people give up their names to learn how to train as monster fighters, a place where they have to learn how to keep the peace. A place where magic is banned. This is a place where different clans train , where there is unrest.
Twelve is one such person, she’s taken the pledge
“I pledge my life to the hunting lodge
I vow to serve all seven classes my own. To protect them from what lies beyond
I forsake all blood ties and family feuds”
And she’s now a huntling, she must keep the name Twelve until she has earned a new name. As she trains all she can think about is revenge, revenge on those who took her family.
Suddenly Twelve’s new home is attacked, a young girl goes missing, nobody else seems to care, but Twelve does. This starts the quest that will help change her name and her life forever. On this quest she learns about the true meaning of friendship, she will learn more about herself and the values she holds dear.

I can imagine that I am Twelve, I can see myself in her shoes taking the pledge and training with the others, leaving to go on the quest, and that’s always what a good book does it makes you believe you are that person . I’m so looking forward to reading the next in the series.
