The transition into adulthood is supposed to be a victory, but for 17 year old Reyhan it is bittersweet and pulls her family apart. Following in her parent’s footsteps, she passes the infamous test to become a Militia – agents working directly under government leaders. While her father is glad to be back in the good graces of the government, her mother is disturbed and disgusted by her complete lack of empathy. Emotions run high when Reyhan’s first target is her rebellious, runaway sister. Despite the desperate pleading of her mother, Reyhan doesn’t hesitate to go on her first assignment.

What initially seems to be an easy target turns into a perilous undertaking when Reyhan makes a miscalculation.  She ends up being taken into the compound that her sister escaped to, where everyone lives in a city of trees.  Then Reyhan meets Floran, a native boy more than willing to help her.  Soon she has Floran under her control, and he unknowingly helps her with her plan to complete her assignment and betray his family.  Not everyone is as smitten with her, though.  She has enemies in the compound that don’t hesitate to make themselves known.  Trained from birth to obey, fight, and kill, little does she realize that the hardest difficulty to overcome will be within herself.
