They survived the game. They survived the cyber sickness and loss of friends. Now they will face the hardest journey yet: choosing sides.
From the very beginning, Kelly, Jack, and Reis have had one goal: to get home. But the event that caused the virtual game to malfunction has plunged the world into icy darkness. Technology is gone, food is scarce and while many survivors have settled into evacuation centers, many more have not. Along the way these three friends will have choices to make, secrets to expose or keep, sides to choose, and some will forge their own path.
But all will face a harsh reality. Their lives are changed forever and home is where they least expect to find it. And then there is a group of people who hold the secret to humanity's survival - the Nexis. Will they choose to fight them or join them?
