The story picks up with Mathias and the shadow children (third children are illegalized) hiding from the Population Police that are modern day Nazis who hunt the illegal third children. The purpose of the Population Police was established during the droughts and famine period where food was scarce. Their solution was to permit only 2 children per household to maintain enough food for everybody. But in the series, we learn about how the politics, corruption, and evil manipulative ways that the Population Police in this unidentified country is allowing their own fellow citizens to die of hunger daily.
Mathias ends up in enemy headquarters of the Population Police after a heroic action. He is befriended by a highly esteemed officer who dies. Mathias is treated highly by the secretive commander of the Population Police who treated the Officer like a son and protege. During his time there, Mathias is given access to secretive information to help the cause. Won't go any further, the story is compelling, imaginative, and suspenseful!
