The Queen's Army (Lunar Chronicles, #1.5) - Marissa Meyer One day, 12 year old Z is whisked from his home and genetically modified for the Queen's Army. There, he is trained to be a killer. But the thing Z wants most is to never become the pure animal of the infantry.

This short story was completely awesome. I mean...wow! I adored it. I loved the characters, I loved the story, I especially loved the well-thought out action scenes. Oh, wait, there is one thing I didn't love...it's way too darned short! Hopefully, I get to see Z in "Scarlet". What an amazing, interesting character!
