This book!!
This was the first book I’ve read by Marie Lu. I was a little skeptical to read it because the summary didn’t draw me in, but the writing is great and the characters are relatable.
Plus the ending!! I need to read more!

Here’s the summary:
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 knowsi 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.
