Summary from Amazon.co.uk:
DO YOU POSSESS A WINNING COMBINATION OF THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE, PRACTICAL SKLLS AND RAW INTELLIGENCE? DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO LEAD OTHERS? ARE YOU WILLING TO CRUSH THOSE WHO STAND IN YOUR WAY? Every year, the United Commonwealth invites top graduates from each colony to participate in The Testing. Successful candidates will go on to the University and help the government work to rebuild our war-stricken world. This process is not optional. Disclaimer: The United Commonwealth is not responsible for candidates' psychological or physical heath during The Testing.
I really like the sound of this one and the cover is fantastic! The premise sounds great, what with a war-stricken world and a university for leaders. I know this has been out in the US for a month or so but I've avoided any reviews. For anyone who's read it - is it worth the wait? I hope so!
