Angharad, Jin and Tsuyoshi have survived four months in Zapville. While Tsuyoshi struggles with his difficult relationships, Angharad struggles with complicated attractions and her tense friendship with Jin. New tests from their mysterious overlord lead to new encounters and strange bedfellows. But when things take a darker and more desperate turn, not everyone they know will survive.
Sick of the small life imposed on her, sixteen year old Angharad is seeking escape. When she wakes up on the other side of the Gate what she gets instead is a tighter prison than she’s ever known. With no way out and no way to find her mysterious jailer, she finds herself relying on the people trapped with her: Tsuyoshi, an angry Canadian art student, well-meaning Josephine, the secretive Dr Yeoh, and Jin, a child soldier. But in this technological trap beyond anything she’s ever known not everyone is who they seem, and even Angharad is unsure what is true about her own life.
