Imagine a world always at war. I mean the 30 years war had nothing in this one.
Gideon was hailed the local hero by the government and at his medal he claims that he claimed he was a coward and ruins the good feelings for Waterford City. Waterford was a nothing town that finally had something to be proud about, Gideon. Tessa, a girl who knew Gideon when they were children for some reason decides to get involved and find out what had happened. What follows at first reminded me of a Star Trek episode, The Forever War. For a short while I thought that I was right but then the book took a strange and interesting turn. The twist involved a renegade girl Dek, who winds up helping Tessa and Gideon figure out what is going on and why the war seems not to be being fought at all.
This is a fun book that would be lots of fun for YA readers. It has lots of twists and turns.
