Ellen’s ready for a “normal” year at IA …
… too bad nothing’s ever that simple.
Barry is home. The Global Government have Novaside in custody, and the rebel strongholds are falling. So why does Ellen still have doubts about this year at IA?
The year starts off decent enough.
The anniversary of the school’s inception brings with it a multi-school event, and IA are the hosts.
The first competition is surprisingly easy, and when Ellen and her friends make it through, she starts to believe this year might be everything she wished for.
But as each round brings with it new challenges, pushing their dedication, enhancements, and friendships to the edge. Ellen starts to question why she was even competing.
After all, winning isn’t everything.
Getting out alive will be the real challenge.
