Product description

Stark cover? Stark truths. Kaspar (Guardian soldier) is fighting for peace and saving lives with military force. Problem: he’s also being lied to. Q: how do you know that what you’re told about the world is true? You can watch the news, or be guided by people you trust. But how can you know? Kaspar lives in a society that values peace and harmony. But it’s constantly threatened by vicious rebels just beyond the city walls. That’s why the city needs the Guardians – an elite peacekeeping force – to protect it. Right? But when Kaspar joins the Guardians, it all goes wrong. He actually meets a rebel: a beautiful girl named Rhea. A girl who opens his eyes. What is he really fighting for?
