“Everything is a kalopsia, Aryan. Even the Moon always hides away its dark side. We all have a chapter we don’t read out loud.”
Every three years, within the State of Blazar, about five hundred eighteen-year-olds are recruited by the military forces of the Arm, in order to be trained and prepared for war. From the dream of owning two cows in the garden to the roar of missiles, in real places or idealised ones – like the mysterious North and its inhabitants – Valyrie Wade finds herself thrown onto a path she didn’t choose, but that somehow turns out to be truly hers. Among training courses, study and the secrets that tie her family to the Arm, Valyrie starts building a profound connection with the most unexpected person, feeling emotions she has never known. In spite of a complicated beginning, the company and disarming enthusiasm of the inseparable Aryan Murph seem to make life at the Base more tolerable. But war is unpredictable. People are fragile. And all the beauty could just be an illusion.
