Summary

In the Valta, no matter what month you were born, everyone is assigned the same birthday. November 1st. It's the anniversary of the day when the government declared war on the Eastern Order. The day you turn 17, the Recruiters come to take you away. And no one ever hears from you again.

It’s October 31st. Today, Kress is 16 years old. Tomorrow, she’ll be taken.

The good news? So will her best friend Cardyn, and Brohn, the handsome, enigmatic boy she’s avoided all her life.

The bad news?

Recruitment isn’t what any of them expected.

Weeks of training await. Military and psychological tests, escape rooms, hand-to-hand combat. The Recruits are told they're the key to winning the war. But with each day that passes, things begin to make less sense.

If only Kress had been able to bring her trained raven, Render, with her. If only none of them had ever had to come to this place.

Terrible narration

I have no idea how good the book itself is so this review is not of the nook at all. I listened for maybe 5 minutes & am already too annoyed with the voice on audible. Nothing against this girl, her voice is very pleasant but the production/direction is not good. The inflection & emphasis is just over the top cheesy. Takes me out of the story completely.

I really enjoyed this book. Wish the rest of the series was available on audible.
