A Novella by Jenna Elizabeth Johnson
***THIS STORY IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE SHORT STORY COLLECTION, TALES OF OESCIENNE - VOLUME ONE*** Jahrra and her friends are about to embark upon a very important mission: to steal the flag of their nemesis, Eydeth, in a city-wide game of Conquer the Castle. Their schoolmaster has decided to put on a war game to see if his students have what it takes to survive the real world and Jahrra can't wait to begin the battle. Armed with small crossbows and paint-tipped arrows, she and her classmates will wage war upon one another as they try to capture each other's banners. But Jahrra isn't after just any banner; she wants the golden flag that belongs to Eydeth and his teammates. Will Jahrra and her team be able to outwit and out-maneuver their other classmates in order to win the grand prize; a day off from school and the utter humiliation of their shared enemy? Or will the twins once again make Jahrra the laughing stock of the whole school? Conquer the Castle is an adventurous, and sometimes humorous, short story from the world of Oescienne.
