❛ DEATH OF A BOY MARKS THE BEGINNING OF A WAR. NOBODY KNOWS WHAT MARKS THE END OF IT. ❜
Ezekiel Brusseau's mangled corpse hasn't even cooled by the time two people begin to impersonate him.
Nearly two centuries after the nuclear war, Jesamine Haas from the rivalry Griffons, poses as Zeke at the heart of the Skóroi faction while the government is planning to use Brusseau's death to send Coen Finlay. It isn't long until Jesamine starts noticing patterns that shouldn't be there and her mentor Milo blindly follows the path he has been given, and the government's golden boy creates a path of his own in order to prove himself.
Ezekiel is dead. Jesamine is impersonating him. Milo is an oblivious soldier. Coen is trying to infiltrate the Skóroi on his own. Mara knows a secret too many. Mysterious slaughters are happening over their hometown of Scraffet and they might be the only people in whose interest it is to prove there are monsters lurking not far from where children play.
There is going to be a hunt - if only the prize for their heads weren't glory.
