War is complex. Anytime it seems simple or straightforward is only a façade. The faces of enemies and allies can change and the apparent nature of the situation can appear so much more different from the truth.
Picking up after the events of "The Midnight Exchange", this story is meant to tell the tale of the battle for the fate of a small rural village in a fictional Balkan country. It follows the actions and events in the lives of several characters and factions, each with their own reasons to risk their lives for victory.
Major Vassili Zorskel, right hand man of the "Butcher of the Balkans" and second in command of a formidable mercenary force, seeks an opportunity to atone for the actions of his past. Will a clear enemy allow him to clear his conscious or force him deeper into the murky fog of his own soul?
Jarek and Senka, two werewolves fighting for their home against a ruthless enemy. Will wisdom and experience be enough to save them in the face of a foe that has come prepared to destroy all who stand in their way?
Raven Team, a group of agents comprised of three humans and a werewolf. Though a tip from a double agent led them to the targeted village of Leskavac, can the actions of so few save the lives of hundreds on the brink of devastation?
My submission for WereWriter's Write-a-Thon where the theme this month was "Battle".

I agree, there is evil in the code and it's such a pain. I'm still waiting for them to make it more user friendly and not the demon it is to work with now.
That's true. It's just a very lengthy chapter. People find it hard to finish reading longer pieces which is an thought that always pops into my head when writing. I usually just silence it by hoping that if the story is interesting then readers will finish it. I wanted to play with telling the story of this one event from the viewpoint of both sides. Sometimes there would be overlaps in time as I showed the same moment through the eyes of different characters but it's good to hear that it didn't hurt the story even if it did odd things to the flow.
