They must risk it all
to regain their freedom ...
or be sealed away forever.
SOPHIA FREEMAN and her best friend, TIM CHARNAL, face being sealed away forever as punishment for Tim murdering the fountain guardian, Anaconar. But after Gordimon presents their case before the mighty arbiters, the humans are given a second chance. They must compete in the arbiters’ challenging special Beyond Event and win the grand prize—jade stones, called The Gate to New Beginning—which would earn their freedom and gain the islanders’ trust.
Lack of information about the event fills Sophia and Tim with unbearable curiosity. Its secrets will only be revealed on each day of competition. Gathering their courage, the best friends work on strengthening their bodies, desperately hoping it will be enough to beat the other contestants.
The Beyond Event involves three rounds carefully designed by the arbiters. Once each contestant enters the hologram, they are immersed in unfamiliar environments. There they encounter creatures such as flaming root monsters, hammer-throwing cave giants, and a slimy tentacled sea monster threatening to take out everything in their path.
As the difficulty increases, Sophia and Tim need to use all their courage, wits, and skills. One of the most useful surprise resources provided is the memory list containing the names of all contestants who have ever participated in an event. A little magic can enable a participant to access the past of a selected former contestant to gain experience and lessons before the competition begins. However, once the contestants enter the hologram, magic is forbidden.
Incredibly, Sophia and Tim make it to the final round. With everything at stake, and magic now allowed, they work together to not only conquer the obstacles, but also overcome the evil magic of Tombermon, whose dark past is finally revealed.
