In the City of Truth, the Ascendance is the most important ceremony. To be invited to attend as a Junior Peacekeeper is an honor, one that Osi earned. But through his misdeeds, he got disinvited. To go now, Osi’s punishment would be harsh, but that did not stop him. Aleke and the Cult of Tutu attacked the ceremony. Osi’s brave actions confronting Aleke help save the City of Truth. He lost an arm but earned a spot as a Truthseeker for his actions. Now, he has one year to train. He has one year for vengeance. He has one year to learn the truth.
