When Preston and Mace go looking for their friend Alice after she disappears mysteriously, they never expected to find themselves in the middle of a secret government cover-up. The friends soon discover that Alice, along with hundreds of other teens, have been charged for petty crimes, rounded up, and sent to a prison in another dimension. Now captives of an agency known as M.I.S.T.. Preston must put his trust in a rogue agent and enter the prison with little hope of finding his friend.
This was a fast-paced read with a Maze Runner feel to it. The story is rather short so their isn't a lot of back story but it will appeal to adventure readers.
