Humans colonized the planet Kepler 186f after Earth's near total global collapse. Soon after, supply missions ended leaving the colonists to themselves, renaming the planet Anastasia and building a new society far different than Earth's. As population imbalance threatened stability in the settlements, a horrific and brutal institution known as The Selection was created.
Centuries later, haunted by the screams of his dead older brother, eighteen year-old Eron fears the unknown terror waiting for him and all boys his age in The Selection. He has thirty days to survive to Victory Point and reunite with his crush Mina. He will have to endure brutal circumstances and forge unlikely alliances if he's to survive The Selection.
After brothers Timo and Eron are separated by the ritual of the Selection, they’re forced into vastly different lives. Accepting their fate, they make the best of their situation. But when Timo’s home among the Forgotten is invaded everything changes.
Eron must decide if he will join the invaders or risk the life he’s earned and fight alongside the Forgotten.
Though hidden for centuries, the time has come… the Forgotten must rise.
Sides are chosen. Alliances are made. Families are divided.
The Truth have risen and now stand as the last remnant against the evil plans of Queen Anastasia. Eron and his brother Nagi must fight for freedom in the face of overwhelming odds and the threatened extinction of the Truth.
Don’t miss the final chapter of the Forgotten Chronicles and the thrilling conclusion to Eron’s saga.
