Expected publish date:
June 4, 2013

Publisher's summary: WHO WILL BE CHOSEN TO LEAD:
THE BEST? THE BRIGHTEST? THE DEADLIEST?

The Seven Stages War left much of a planet a charred wasteland. The future belongs to the next generation's chosen few, who must rebuild it. But to enter this elite group, candidates must first pass The Testing-their one chance at a college education and a rewarding career. Cia Vale is honored to be chosen for The Testing and eager to prove her worthiness. But on the eve of her departure, her father's advice hints at a darker side to her upcoming studies: Trust no one.

Surely she can trust Tomas, her handsome, capable childhood friend who offers an alliance? Tomas, who seems to care more about her with every passing (and deadly) day of The Testing. To survive, Cia must choose: love without truth or life without trust?
