after the castle


Alexander, Skylar, Rae, and Darien have had the same common goal ever since they joined a terrorist organization: take down the corrupt members of government whatever it takes. The organization attempts to use legal, legitimate methods, like education, petitions, and rallies, whenever possible, but when worst comes to worst, they resort to less ethical means: blackmail, extortion, torture, and assassination. The noble motivations of this group intertwine themselves with the twistedness of their methods, blending together to create a complex shade of gray that readers will discover throughout the novel.

These four radicals, who have trained together for the past 5 years, are given the most important and dangerous mission the organization has ever dared to attempt: assassinating the crown prince. He has aligned himself with dangerous extremist groups who oppose the core values of the [organization], and as the king's health deteriorates, the gravity of this mission only increases.

And so four teenagers are entrusted with the most dangerous mission to date: find and kill the crown prince while keeping their organization's privacy secure and, preferably, not getting themselves killed. But carrying out the assassination is just the first stage: afterwards, they must face the collective vengeance of the terrorist groups that backed the crown prince and the royal army alike. They must find a way to defend what they believe in in the face of unthinkable odds.

This story is more than a fictional tale of adventure and heroism. It is a subtle critique of radical culture, a story of inspirational role models who fight for what they believe in, a story of shades of greys, right intentions mixed with wrong actions, and, most importantly, a story engineered to motivate and inspire a new generation to fight for the highest good: love.

This is your invitation to embark on an adventure of self-discovery through a book that poignantly explores real, powerful topics like injustice, the danger of radicalization and polarization, and the dangers of hatred and fall in love with heroic characters who work together to fight for what they believe in. Will you accept?
