Nearly 30 years ago, the PEACE Project rose from the ruins of a global war to take power over a new America. Providing stability in exchange for absolute authority, the Project controls every aspect of citizens' lives through each of its five units:
Protect
Enforce
Advance
Control
Eliminate
Raised in the Project since infancy, eighteen-year-old Zira has been trained as an assassin under the stern guidance of unit E-2's Chairman Ryku. After she makes a careless mistake on an assignment, the chairman partners her with Jared, the best operative in her unit. Their partnership transforms into friendship as they work together and learn to rely on each other. But when misinformation causes a solo mission to backfire, Zira's deepest loyalties and strongest relationships are tested in a place where even a hint of doubt can be perceived as treason.
The life she knows is falling apart, and nothing will ever look the same again. 

T. A. Hernandez grew up with her nose habitually stuck in a book and her mind constantly wandering to make-believe worlds full of magic and adventure. She began writing stories after reading J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings for the first time at age 10. Thankfully, her writing has improved significantly since then, though she will happily admit that she has much more to learn and is looking forward to a long and exciting journey in her Quest to Tell Better Stories.


She is the proud mother of two girls and a college student working towards her degree in social work. She also enjoys drawing, reading, watching movies, riding her motorcycle, and making happy memories with her family and friends.



In a dystopic world, Zira is part of the PEACE project, her task? To eliminate threats, which means she has been trained to be a "perfect assassin". When she is teamed with Jared, what starts as friendship soon moves on to something bigger. 

Zira is a likable and believable character, she is very mature for her age and her strength has allowed her to be part of a unique team. She has to face some shocking revelations as a consequence of her missions and her world will never be the same. Her relationship with Jared is sweet and natural and makes the story even better.

One of the things I liked about the book is how easy it's to read. The writing is really good and the story moves really fast. We jump right into the action and there aren't chapters and chapters explaining why PEACE was born or why the world is where it is. We have to put the pieces together and immediately follow the line of the story.

I would definitely read more from the author and the world she created it.
