Having lost his parents before he started school and with little memory of his childhood, Nik embarks on a journey of discovery to find out not only who he is but who he is meant to be.
After a bombing at his school that kills his best friend Lou, Nik and his friends head north in an attempt to take Sol & Fyffe (Lou’s brother and sister) home to their parents and to safety. But along the way, Sol is kidnapped by the hostiles and Nik and Fyffe go after him.
Despite being unwillingly enlisted in the enemy’s army in order to hide their true identities, they relentlessly search only to find more than they could have ever imagined. With many trials and discoveries hampering their way, they eventually get what they came for… or did they?
I truly enjoyed every aspect of this book! It is extremely well written. It was impossible to put down; every page started a new adventure.
My favorite part of the book was when Fyffe helped Nik escape. It was at this point in the novel that you started hoping for a sequel.
