With everything having fallen apart the Colony is the only place Alexander, and the rest of the inhabitants, are safe. Only things aren’t easy for the people living there, especially not after the death of the Colony’s founder, Alexander’s father, and the rebels who are vying for control right at the very worst time possible. No one knows how bad things are, however. No one apart from the scientists who are desperately looking for a way to save the last humans on Earth. Just as the end of the world comes they manage to do this in the most unexpected way. Alexander, after a blow to the head during the final moments of Earth, finds himself somewhere entirely different to the world he called home.
Finding themselves somewhere so different is a complication, and a large one. No one knows anything about this new world, or even if it really is a new world, leading them to making the kind of mistakes it might not be possible to save people from. With every step Alexander takes he finds out a little more about himself, the people around him, and this new world he found himself on. Each one of those people helps him as best they can to survive, because it has always been their home, and even when the very worst happens he manages to find the strength to keep on putting one foot in front of the other. With magic involved, however, some things aren’t as they were on Earth, which, to him, definitely isn’t a bad thing.
Only this is just the beginning of the journey Alexander is going to take. With his friends, and his loyal companion Johnny, he knows that he has to try to save his new home. With the ogres, trolls, and goblins working against him, as well as a dark witch, is he going to be able to do what needs to be done? Or is he going to fall before he’s even truly begun?
