Imagine waking up to discover that the world you know is no longer beneath you? Gareth Oakley should have awoken to his unhappy existence as a primary school teacher in South Wales, recovering from the break-up of a long-term relationship and a long battle with alcoholism. Instead, he wakes up inside a cocooned chamber in a strange laboratory, unsure about how he got there or why he was taken. But he is just one of twenty-five strangers from different backgrounds, places and times who have been abducted and abandoned on a seemingly deserted alien world. Bryony James is a glamorous yet naive actress from 1930 s Hollywood, hiding a dark secret about her past. Simon Gradyis an arrogant, impulsive Sergeant in the US Marine Corps who refuses to accept Gareth s natural leadership. Christopher Veroni a suave 80 s music producer with dark plans of seduction and power. The group also includes a nineteenth century coalminer, a golf-loving Scot, two frightened children and a young WWI Medic. The challenges of surviving together are as complex as the mysteries of this unfamiliar world. The abductees unite to discover a wild, alien jungle beyond this facility that offers hope that salvation may be away from the building in which they awoke. They are left with many unanswered questions but nobody suspects the dangers that may be waiting for them as they set off on their perilous journey to find the way home."
