It’s not against any formal rule for us to sleep together.
It is, however, strictly forbidden to have feelings for each other.
I can’t do one without the other at this point.
Which means I am doomed.
When you don’t know who you can trust, reality distorts. It twists and oozes, disintegrating and reformulating to meet whatever needs its masters demand.
Just like me.
Just like Kina.
Except everything is different now that we know who we really are.
But there’s a second reality, you see.
This one can’t be manipulated.
It just is. Solid and true, it takes our mission, our training, our orders, turning them into nothing but secrets and lies.
And this new reality means my old reality is trying to kill everything I love.

I received this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.
- Once you’ve mastered the rules you know when you have to break them.
- Power plays are done by insecure people. Don’t need to throw your weight around when you’re truly in charge.
- People only value that which reinforces what they already believe.
- Documenting what we observe is a time-honored traditions. It makes us think we have a modicum of mastery, but what it really shows is our fear. To predict our surroundings is to feel safe, to feel we have some control.
- I never know a kiss could become an entire world.
- A leader never has more authority than when they are reviewing choices and realize that new information means they have to re-evaluate their beliefs.
- Innocent babies and body counts shouldn’t mix.
- Choice is relative. When we talk about human behavior, we think in terms of choosing. Free will is a given, and yet so much of what we call a decision is pre-programmed by outside factors. We act out of instinct, but what shapes that? Education. Role modeling. Culture. Training.
- Cracks in facades are permanent. Once something breaks, it can never be unbroken. Whether it shatters, though, depends on too many variables out of our hands.
