Throughout history, people have vanished with no explanation. A group of teenagers are about to discover why.
Cade is sitting on plane, contemplating his future, when he finds himself transported to another realm - a world populated with lost remnants from the past: prehistoric creatures, ancient relics, and stranger still - people who lived many years ago.
Overwhelmed by his new surroundings Cade has little time to adjust, as he fights for his life at every turn and is forced to band together with a group of teenagers who are all carrying their own troubles and fears. This endless, brutal tournament is controlled by mysterious overlords, but it's clear Cade has two choices: play their game or die.
Cade and his fellow contenders must prepare for the ultimate battle of survival. Get ready to fight.
