Firstborns rule society. Secondborns are the property of the government. Thirdborns are not tolerated. Long live the Fates Republic.
On Transition Day, the second child in every family is taken by the government and forced into servitude. Roselle St. Sismode's eighteenth birthday arrives with harsh realizations: she's to become a soldier for the Fate of Swords military arm of the Republic during the bloodiest rebellion in history, and her elite firstborn mother is happy to see her go.
Televised since her early childhood, Roselle's privileged upbringing has earned her the resentment of her secondborn peers. Now her decision to spare an enemy on the battlefield marks her as a traitor to the state.
But Roselle finds an ally - and more - in fellow secondborn conscript Hawthorne Trugrave. As the consequences of her actions ripple throughout the Fates Republic, can Roselle create a destiny of her own? Or will her Fate override everything she fights for - even love?

What a good book.....
I'm not used to plain modern day Sci Fi / Fantasy,but...... I was intrigued by the short summary of this book and decided to give it a try. I was inno way disappointed. The plot line is new and original. The action is mostly fast paced. The suspense is palpable. Bravo!!!
The end is very surprising.
Again I would say the ending. Although as with most books I TrueType enjoy,I wanted it to go on and on....
Hard to say. I'm not much of a movie buff..
Exceptional story and narration.
