The only thing worse than being locked in is facing what you locked out...

Rett Ward knows how to hide. He's had six years of practice at Walling Home, the state-run boarding school where he learned how to keep his head down to survive.

But when Rett wakes up locked in a small depot with no memory of how he got there, he can't hide. Not from the stranger in the next room. Or from the fact that there's someone else’s blood on his jumpsuit.

Worse, every time he tries to escape, he wakes up right back where he started. Same day, same stranger, same bloodstained jumpsuit.

As memories start to surface, Rett realizes that the logo on the walls is familiar, the stranger isn't a stranger, and the blood on his jumpsuit belongs to someone—or something—banging on the door to get in.

Find the way out or never wake up…

The end of the world came and went. The survivors escaped into a simulated reality, a world of impossibilities and mysteries where human minds could live while the earth healed. A world that was programmed to end. But never did.

Now the strange sanctuary is breaking down. And only seventeen-year-old Lake remembers none of this is real. She spends her days searching a strange, post-apocalyptic landscape for people who have forgotten the real world and helps them escape.

When Lake reveals the truth to a fellow passenger, Taren, he joins her mission to find everyone and wake them up. But time’s running out before the simulation completely deconstructs, and soon Taren’s deciding who’s worth saving and who must be sacrificed for the greater good. Now, Lake has no choice but to pit herself against Taren in a race to find the secret heart of the sim, where something waits that will either save them or destroy them all.
