Love vs Life. Good vs Evil. War vs Warfare. Which would you choose?
After a solar flare wipes out most of the world’s inhabitants, it leaves behind nothing but a desolate earth and a desperate population. Existence is no longer a certainty. And with factions now fighting for the power to rule, people start to become reckless with their lives. The world has become a dangerous place.
Amongst the ensuing chaos, Nate and Hermia – two victims of the new world order – are taken against their will to The Compound. Joined by eight other teenagers all chosen for a specific reason, Nate and Hermia are forced to train as assassins to overthrow the current president and make way for a new leader of the free world. Here, they learn to plan, fight, and most importantly… to survive.
Except, despite the casual cruelty of their new existence, both Nate and Hermia – two very strong but very different people – begin to form fragile bonds within the group. But they soon realize their happiness is short lived…because their training is just the beginning.
