In a world broken by war, a team of young warriors is willing to sacrifice everything to save what they love.

The Karensa Federation has conquered a dozen countries, leaving Mara as one of the last free nations in the world. Refugees flee to its borders to escape a fate worse than death—transformation into mutant war beasts known as Ghosts, creatures the Federation then sends to attack Mara.

The legendary Strikers, Mara's elite fighting force, are trained to stop them. But as the number of Ghosts grows and Karensa closes in, defeat seems inevitable.

Still, one Striker refuses to give up hope.

Robbed of her voice and home, Talin Kanami knows firsthand the brutality of the Federation. Their cruelty forced her and her mother to seek asylum in a country that considers their people repugnant. She finds comfort only with a handful of fellow Strikers who have pledged their lives to one another and who are determined to push Karensa back at all costs.

When a mysterious prisoner is brought from the front, Talin senses there’s more to him than meets the eye. Is he a spy from the Federation? Or could he be the weapon that will save them all?

    Excellente lecture, qui mêle à la perfection science-fiction post-apo, aventure haletante et histoire d'amitié dans un monde ressurgi entre les ruines du nôtre. Je regrette l'aspect un peu insta-love qui vient se mettre en travers de l'intrigue principale, ainsi que la personnalité de l'héroïne qui souffre un peu de la mode des héroïnes "badass à tout prix", mais j'attends la suite avec impatience
