People who are interested in books about war and the moral contemplation when participating in it. This books creates a futuristic world where war becomes a reality to Americans while others can still choose to avoid it. Takes a crisis that we're often use to hearing bout in other countries and brings it to our doorstep. There are action-filled parts in the middle and towards the end of the book that will keep the reader engaged til the end.

As teens, the two brothers were captured by the militant “Glorious Path” and forced to join the movement, which is fighting the U.S. government in a futuristic world. Very unexpectedly, Cal is presented with an” opportunity” to become one of the Path’s deadliest secret agents.

Very interesting, although Nat, James, and occasionally Cal were kind of annoying
