The Mobilized

Enter a city that only opens once a year.

When Prym, Joanna, and Edward are mobilized to enter the Zone, they know that their only chance to get out alive is to succeed in killing the Thing. But between a war of territories and increasingly strange phenomena, the Zone is a place of lawlessness. Inside these walls, the monster may not be who you think it is…

Absolute, book 1: The Mobilized is the first volume of a fantastic dystopia trilogy presented by the Young Adults Big Bang collection of Castelmore (Bragelonne) in France.

Having already convinced more than 20,000 readers since its release, Absolu is a reference in French science fiction in Young Adult. This first volume highlights characters searching for identity in an unstable, terrifying universe.

Between Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, Attack of Titans, and Fullmetal Alchemist, Absolute is a choral novel with frightening realism. One tip: don’t get too attached to the characters…

Book 1

Enter a city that only opens once a year.

Childhood friends Prym and Joanna have a promising future within the nation of Erit, built on the ruins of a ravaged Poland. Their life changes on the day they are chosen to be sent to the Zone where the Thing prowls. The mobilized have only one mission: defeat the most dangerous creature created by Man, or die trying.

Nineteen generations have passed through the gates of the Zone. No one has ever come out.

For Prym and Joanna, it is a great honor – a feeling that Edward does not share, convinced that his linguistic talents will not be helpful to him on the other side of the Wall. Their tumultuous arrival in the Zone gives him the reason: between wars of territories and increasingly strange phenomena, the Zone is lawless. Inside these walls, the monster may not be the one we think…

Absolu tome 2 Les Effacés

Book 2

What if the Thing was not the most formidable threat that awaited them?

The mission is successful, and the mobilized people wake up in Erit hoping to resume everyday life. If Prym, celebrated as a hero, sees his patriotic dreams come true, others will not have this chance. Golden prison for Aleksander and Lise, uncertain future for Edward, forced enlistment for Olimpia, and strange encounter for Zuzanna: no one is safe anymore.

When a civil war breaks out and divides the country, the survivors of the Zone face a thorny choice: to make a place for themselves in Erit society and survive political intrigues, total surveillance, and media propaganda, or try to regain their freedom, whatever the cost.

Unless the past sweeps away their last certainties… What if the actual conflict was brewing in the shadows?What if the Thing was not the most formidable threat that awaited them?
