Alliance.125 book series by Raita Jauhiainen is written in the voice of eight lead characters who live in the post-apocalyptic world, where nations no longer officially exist. The books represent the story in two halves as each book is published from the Terra Unionian and Hirundian viewpoint. Each book functions as an independent story, yet they also compliment one another.
Earth in Alliance.125 is wounded by the Great War. The war has taken place long before the events of the books, yet the environmental and social impacts of it are evident in the everyday lives of the eight main characters. People are, however, living in an era of progress and peace in the ten world cities.
Terra Unionia is an independent area existing outside of the network of ten world cities. The world nation does not officially acknowledge its existence. In contrast, Terra Unionians refer to the world beyond their borders by the name “Hirunda” and they consider it as a hostile force occupying polluted areas on Earth.
In the first book of Terra Unionia, Anamona Vaal starts a new life in Pinus, the beautiful capital city of Terra Unionia. Soon Anamona discovers that the city is not quite what she expected as the hidden truths are revealed.
