Longlisted for the Epigram Books Fiction Prize 2017
This action-packed thriller follows a squad of 18-year-olds who must fight an army of Savages in a war they did not choose.
This action-packed adventure follows Ren, an 18-year-old elite fighter who feels no emotions. That makes him the perfect soldier to battle the Savages—a feral army of half-animal, half-human species prowling outside the 18 walls protecting the city. At least that’s what the propaganda machine will have him believe.
He and his motley squad of soldiers are armed with genetic enhancements and are tasked with venturing beyond the walls on patrol missions. But once there, they discover the real secret of who they—and their enemies—really are. In a war that they are forced to fight without remorse, truth becomes the first casualty, and there can be only one outcome.
