The Initiation is the ruling Bureau’s test of intelligence and bravery. Winners may move with their families to the Bureau’s zone, but the price of failure is exile, which equals death. Alongside his best friend and four other teens, including his nemesis and his crush, Drayden embarks on a perilous journey through the abandoned subway tunnels of the former Manhattan. It’s a race against time, and they face riddles, brainteasers, and grueling physical trials along the way. He must summon the courage to conquer them, while evading his nemesis’s sabotage attempts, learning to be a leader, and winning over the girl he loves. The future of his family, the other entrants, and New America, is in Drayden’s hands.
