Three months shy of 15, Matthi the Goth is too young to be considered for promotion into the senior ranks of his elite military academy, or so he thinks. But his master trainer thinks differently, and Matthi finds himself beside his friend Thomas in a grueling test of mental strength and physical endurance.
Flashback to where it all started: A young Matthi makes a stupid boyhood mistake and ends up at the center of clan hostilities, facing the harsh justice of the Angel of Death.

In the Gothlands, a newly freed Skinny Boy must navigate the complicated and brutal world of the raiders, Tanfrid, and the Angel of Death.
