A midwestern high school is transported into the middle of an alien forest. This is the story of what happens next.
Every hundred years, the Black City has selected a remote population from Earth and transported them to the woods. These civilizations have not always lived in harmony...but now, they must either fight in unison to turn their weapons against the technology that brought them here in the first place, or meet total elimination in the face of Isaac’s unworldly power. Will this unification of factions be enough or are they all doomed?
