The majority of the book is surrounded around the experience of the runaway slaves, Curzon and Isabel, at Valley Forge in 1777-1778. The slaves are the main characters in the book and are excellently developed.

The wolves terrified him. Curzon scrambled down the ravine, thinking about the bodies that the beasts had dug from their graves after the battle at Freeman’s Farm. An escaped slave like him didn’t stand a chance if they’d caught his scent. Gunfire blasted into the glade. Musketballs peppered the trees, nearly ripping his ear. Curzon threw himself to the ground, hoping no British or rebel fire would strike him. When the smoke cleared, a young rebel was staring down the barrel of a British soldier. Curzon hurled a rock at the redcoat and struck him hard in his shoulder. Seizing his chance, the rebel fired. His enemy screamed as blood spurted over dead leaves.

The shaken rebel soon prepared to rejoin his comrades, and Curzon was off with him to the thick of the battle—fighting for the freedom of the men who had enslaved him.

Valley Forge. Curzon found himself serving in the army as a freeman, without papers to prove he wasn’t a slave. The cold of deep winter set in, freezing the feet of any soldier left without boots. Icy winds swept through the camp on nights too cold for pitching tents. All the barrels of salt pork spoiled. With nothing to eat but handfuls of flour, starvation chewed through the rebel army. Veteran soldiers poured muddy water and crushed grain over heated rocks to make scorched firecakes. Little choice for food remained, other than stealing pumpkins from surrounding farms.

Trapped in a world of hunger, freezing weather, and vicious assaults from his own comrades, Curzon missed his friend Isabel fiercely. She had been the one to free him from Bridewell Prison, rowing all night with bleeding hands to save his life. One cold day, Curzon’s former master rode into camp. When their eyes met, past and future caught in one life-changing moment. Freedom and slavery exchanged places. Curzon’s world was about to begin over again. Isabel was alive, but collared in iron, making another escape all but impossible.

Laurie Halse Anderson writes dramatic history that quickly captures your heart. She is a New York Times bestselling author. She’s won numerous awards and honors, including two National Book Award nominations, the Margaret A Awards Award, and the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents Award.

I bought this book because my daughter's class at school is reading it and I wanted to check it out & make sure it was suitable for a youngster to read.
I read the whole thing in one sitting, couldn't put it down, and it made me cry.
There was no inappropriate/adult content.
Definitely a great read, and I would recommend it for adolescent reading material for learning about the revolutionary war.
I started reading the second book, Forge, and am not as into it, haven't finished it...
I just want to skip ahead to the third book which isn't written yet, I if understand correctly.

Forge is narrated by Curzon. The pace of action is nicely sprinkled with Curzon's recollections of his separation from Isabel after she rescued him. We also learn more about his past and how he came to be Bellingham's slave. His resourcefulness and wise judgement of character once again guide him on his path, which ultimately leads once again to Isabel.

My 13-year old had to read the prequel to this for 8th grade Reading, and so I read both this book and the prequel. They both are fascinating and I could not put them down! I have also read another of Anderson's books "Fever 1892" and that was also captivating. I have to say my daughter did not read this book, or even finish the prequel, and she did not like Fever because of the descriptions of people with serious illness. She is a big reader but historical fiction is not her thing (yet!). I hope to get her interested enough to finish them both. I hope Ms Anderson keeps writing because I will keep reading!

I know that this is the second in a series of three books by Laurie Halsey Anderson. I'd read the first "Chains" while inpatient for a medical treatment. It had been provided by the shelves of the sharing rooms library. For where I've been myself I'm not sure of what I'd thought that it been recommended for reading levels as young as high school junior years. When I was from the SouthWest as teenage we'd hardly been told any truths about the NorthEast territories during the Revolutionary war. But although mainly fiction except for some quotes posted before the chapters, I'm trying to learn a little about the NorthEast lands original histories.

With my lengthlento the second book though actually, about four chapters, I'm wondering if Curzon will come back up alive. He was not awake when the boat met coast, still bruised from the foul conditions of rebel prison and used to starving which I hope saves his life and he waked up later.

I'm really enjoying this series. It is a quick read, I'm learning about a period of history I know little about and the characters are enjoyable and realistic. At first I thought I'd be sad that this book switches perspective but actually I enjoyed it very much. On to book three.

The second part of the trilogy that starts with the book Chains. Well researched history. I used it as a read aloud and used some sections for close reading with my 5th grade class. Before sharing it with my class, I couldn't put it down. I myself learned a lot about the American Revolution, and it was refreshing to hear history from the viewpoint of marginalized people, whose voices are generally not represented. I can't wait for part 3- Ashes.
Not only is this a great piece of historical fiction, but it offers a unique first-person experience of a young man who was formerly a slave and now a freeman fighting with the rebel army. Of course, that does not exempt him from tragedy and abuse beyond even the appalling experiences of soldiers at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777-78. It’s also uplifting to see the good fortune and friendship that help overcome these obstacles.
