When Will Parker fled the Capping ceremony which would bring him under the mind-control of the Tripods, he set off for the distant White Mountains, where a growing pocket of rebels lived and fought for freedom. But travelling uncapped, Will was bound to attract attention and he soon discovered that his journey was to be even more dangerous than he imagined...
