Workers silently shuffle to their assigned posts.
Outcasts watch from the alley walls.
On every corner, a Watcher stands stone-faced, rifle in hand.
Nineteen-year-old Hannah exists in a gray, smog-covered world of labor and fear, where sunlight and stars are stories whispered in secret. She survives on the memories left by her parents, reliving the moment they were dragged from their family unit and shot.
Everything changes the night the valley erupts in explosions and gunfire. Edan, a young soldier in disguise, pulls Hannah from her unit and rushes her down to the streets. Surrounded by dozens of terrified slaves, she’s told to run.
Run as hard and as fast as you can and don’t stop!
Hannah’s world turns upside down. Now the enemy fights for her freedom, and she must struggle to shake loose from fear-conditioning and to forgive men who inflicted terror on her people.
For the sake of freedom, she has no choice.
