The danger intensifies. Luke and his friends must decide what to do with the sixty-year-old banned artifact they have stolen from the secret vault of The Six. Luke almost regrets finding it, for it bothers him to have something which has been forbidden for so many years, but he reluctantly joins the others to try and find the answers they seek from its contents. It is supposed to give them answers to the why behind the deception of the mind manipulation, the reason for the discrepancies found in the planning of the Mars mission, and is supposed to give them direction for their future. But it seems to raise more questions than provide answers. The corruption of The Six goes even deeper than they realized, and the immunity of Luke and Sarah against the mind manipulation puts their lives, and those of their friends, in further danger. Will they gain the answers, and the truth, they seek in time to save themselves?
The stakes are raised. Luke and his friends spy on The Six to better understand the deception it is providing to the world. They each continue with their normal jobs to try and appear as if nothing is unusual, but The Six begin to suspect they have become traitors to their cause. Yet, Luke, an astrophysicist, and Sarah, a physician, are needed to keep the Mars mission on time. One of Luke’s friends discovers a puzzle that leads them to a deeper understanding of what may happen in their future, but it opposes the message The Six is trying to tell the masses. Luke and his friends attempt to spread their new-found information to as many people as possible while trying to stay under the radar of The Six. If discovered, they will be on a one-way ticket to Mars themselves with no hope of returning. Will they be successful, or will they all have to start new lives on Mars?
