In an agricultural zone called the Region, seventeen-year-old Anya is left shaken when her parents are murdered. Considered a liability by the authorities, the grief stricken teen is dispatched to a mysterious training facility.
Pitted against peers of her own age, Anya is quickly exposed to the brutality of the training facility’s regime. But when the stalwart teen falls for a trick to eliminate her competition, the facility’s sinister motives are exposed.
This is not an exercise in independence but a Region-wide assimilation. Of all orphaned teens.
Victory is the prize. But winning could mean death.
Can the terrified teen beat the facility at its own game, or is she already its next victim?
