"We are built and destroyed on love."
Zelda Ellyn Jadestone doesn't know love; she can't remember her old family, and she's determined to forget her little brother, Peter, who abandoned her almost four years ago. The only two people she finds solace in are her elderly neighbor and father figure, Charles Woobi, and her best friend, Eric Stellenzer. She's content with living a simple, ordinary life, and chooses not to dwell on the people she's lost. But when Charles Woobi is suddenly arrested under mysterious circumstances, Zelda enlists the help of a young Uniform, or military officer, named David, and discovers her society holds something much more sinister than she ever knew could be possible.
In Emalie Brannigan's exhilarating, debut novel, Zelda Jadestone explores the fine line between love and hate, truth and pain, and justice and obedience as she unravels the mystery behind her memory loss and her brother's disappearance. Love just might be something worth fighting for.
