Years after a violent war destroyed much of the world, Kaspar has grown up in a society based on peace and harmony. But beyond the city walls, a vicious band of rebels are plotting to tear this peace apart. It is up to the Guardians - an elite peacekeeping force - to protect the city, without ever resorting to the brutal methods of their enemy. When Kaspar joins the Guardians, he has a chance encounter with a rebel - a beautiful girl named Rhea. Haunted from that moment on by strange visions and memories - memories that could only belong to Rhea - he realises he hasn't been told the truth about what the rebels really want, and what he's really fighting for.
Teenager Kaspar Wilding is a member of the Guardian Academy which strives to maintain peace and harmony in a country that was previously ripped apart by a horrific war. But is it a false sense of peace for Kaspar and his friends who are members of this elite peace keeping force? Just outside the town walls, insurgents are getting ready to take over the country. Kaspar also has to deal with his encounters with two girls: Mac and Rhea, one of the rebels, who induces a particular guilt in him. How will it all work out and will Kaspar make the right decisions? And is the conflict he's embroiled in really a noble conflict?
