The alien wars are unending. In 2187, Earth has the Katarga trapped on the moon, refusing to allow them to escape. The Piltrak and Jurale are pending threats, which forces Global Command to recruit 15-year-olds as soldiers. Dax, low-status and a non-conformist, never imagined she’d be a soldier, yet she was hand-picked by gruff Commander Viteri, taken from her parents, never to see them again. She doesn’t want to kill aliens, and suspects there’s more to the wars than keeping the aliens at bay. The problem is, can she survive long enough to find the truth?
