Debbie gives an overview of the book:

The Shadow Boys, self-named for their ability to hide within their own shadows, were captured in a brutal battle that evil won. A spell covered up the treachery, wiping the boys and the war from the world’s memory. Years later, a girl discovers their mystery and learns that the Shadow Boys have not gone quietly. Training themselves like a Special Forces unit, they have prepared for the day they would attempt to escape all at the same time. Prior attempts had failed and like the oft described military band of brothers, they will not leave one man behind. Instead, they have waited anxiously for the girl’s prophecized arrival, for it is foretold that she must fight on their side if they are to win against the powerful witch and her army of dark mystical creatures. But now, just when she begins to uncover the truth, the enemy finds her.
