About the Book

In a society ruthlessly controlled by one great leader,

a society based entirely around war,

a society where the unfit are forced to become menial laborers,

About the Author

Lachlan Keller, age 16, is a high school student who lives in Southern California. Since he learned to read, he has virtually always had a book in his hand.
