Violent nightmares.
A haunting past.

As an orphan, government recruiters, entwined within a secret project, place Luke Richards into a military school in the East End of London. He quickly discovers who he can trust and who will stand against him. Upon finding the government selected him and several other capable recruits, Luke fears what will happen to the one person he confides in.

Reading the first issue of this series was a fun trip; between the snips of visions Luke has and the seemingly everyday life he goes through living in a military academy, it gives you plenty of reasons to keep turning the page in wonder of what will happen next and how it all connects. The art for the comic, while different than what you typically find, shares a host of emotions with the characters and their actions. Stepping into the first couple of pages you can easily spot the type of character Luke can potentially be. Delving further into the story you get to meet other characters like his roommate and my personal favorite so far, Lauren. The story is rich, with not just character development, but also relationship growth for our protagonist amongst his inner circle.

The story definitely leaves questions as to what will be happening to these characters, especially after the older gent who came in to really change things up and raise even further questions to the future of these kids. Questions like who is he and what exactly is his agenda with these cadets? This graphic novel does a great job on investing you into Luke and wondering how all these things are going to shape him further along in the series.
