BlackAcre, Volume One: An Errand Into the Wilderness

And now that one of his comrades has gone missing during a clandestine mission into hostile territory, Hull himself must venture out beyond the wall... into the brutal and lawless frontier known as the Hinterlands. But when the mission goes violently off the rails, Hull is left with more questions than answers: What went wrong? Who is really in charge?
