Publisher's Summary

One word changes everything.
The all-powerful ruling authority, the Common, implants sensors into its citizens, sensors into the eyes and into the ears. They can see what you see and hear what you hear, and everything is monitored and recorded. One wrong word, or action, and you can lose your citizenship, which means death.
This is the world that Alpha has survived in for 13 years, and he's good at it. At the School, he's an instructor rank, the highest ranking, which means almost no mistakes, for years. But now everything is unraveling. The Common has set their sights on him, systematically testing him to determine his allegiances. And what's worse, they're bringing Theta into this, the only person in the world that he cares about, and they might even kill her to get to him.
And the only way that this gets resolved, and the only way he can keep Theta safe, is if Alpha finds a way to escape the School. But how can you run from an enemy who can watch you at all times, an enemy who knows everything about you, when a single misspoken word can destroy you?
A nonstop dystopian novel, terrifyingly engrossing and imaginative.
