Fans of Marie Lu will be well pleased with book one of the Skyhunter duology. It’s classic Marie! For those not familiar with her writing, here’s a lightning-paced dystopian fantasy with a dynamic balance of characters that will appeal to both guys and gals. I’m intrigued with Talin’s world—I want to know more about it! And the fight scenes rival those of a Marvel movie. I’m curious to see how this will wrap up.— Susan

A broken world.
An overwhelming evil.
A team of warriors ready to strike back.
#1 New York Times-bestselling author Marie Lu is back with an adrenaline-laced novel about the lengths one warrior will go to fight for freedom and those she loves.
Talin is a Striker, a member of an elite fighting force that stands as the last defense for the only free nation in the world: Mara.
A refugee, Talin knows firsthand the horrors of the Federation, a world-dominating war machine responsible for destroying nation after nation with its terrifying army of mutant beasts known only as Ghosts.
But when a mysterious prisoner is brought from the front to Mara's capital, Talin senses there’s more to him than meets the eye. Is he a spy from the Federation? What secrets is he hiding?
Only one thing is clear: Talin is ready to fight to the death alongside her fellow Strikers for the only homeland she has left . . . with or without the boy who might just be the weapon to save—or destroy—them all.
Loyalty is life.
