In the 19th century, the Ottoman Empire is a dominating force on the Balkan peninsula. The frequent unrest gives rise to the Haiduk gangs – organized gatherings of Slavic villagers who fight against the oppression and violence in their area.
Sirma has spent the first 18 years of her life as a happy and hardworking Slavic girl in her quiet mountain village. Until she loses her two best friends to a gang of outlaws. The village elders don’t do anything, because they fear the wrath of Amza Bei – the head outlaw in the area.
Fed up with hiding and keeping silent, Sirma dresses up like a man and takes the lead of her own Haiduk gang dedicated to protecting the weak. She will stand face to face with Amza Bei and end his tyranny once and for all. But the road she has chosen is long and full of hurdles. Will she survive living and fighting in the mountain? Will she keep her gang from becoming outlaws themselves? And will her comrades accept her once they find out she is a woman?
This is a historical fiction novel about a real historical figure.
