The remnant of Glenrock has been scattered. But they are not beaten. The Safe Lands have long kept the true meaning of Liberation secret from their people. But after being sentenced to Liberation themselves, Mason and Omar soon discover the truth. Levi watched his brothers’ public sentencing and tries to hold out hope they are still alive, He is forced to focus his attention elsewhere, however, when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and made the Safe Lands’ newest Queen. His only choice to save Jemma may be to take up Omar’s old role of undercover vigilante, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will Levi’s new role be enough? Meanwhile, Jemma’s sister, Shaylinn, is ready to give birth to the “Safe Lands’” children ... but not even Ciddah is sure they can be delivered safely in the midst of a rebellion. And Mason must face the fact Omar’s illness could be fatal. If they can all unite their efforts, together they may be able to expose the Safe Lands’ lies to the people. But if they fail, they will all surely die.

Auch seinen fünften Geburtstag feiert Jack in Raum. Raum hat eine immer verschlossene Tür, ein Oberlicht und ist 12 Quadratmeter groß. Dort lebt der Kleine mit seiner Mutter. Dort wurde er auch geboren. Jack liebt es fernzusehen, denn da sieht er seine »Freunde«, die Cartoonfiguren. Aber er weiß, dass die Dinge hinter der Mattscheibe nicht echt sind – echt sind nur Ma, er und die Dinge in Raum. Bis der Tag kommt, an dem Ma ihm erklärt, dass es doch eine Welt da draußen gibt und dass sie versuchen müssen, aus Raum zu fliehen ... »Nerven zerreißend und fesselnd. ›Raum‹ – angeregt von der wahren Geschichte über Elisabeth Fritzl, eingesperrt mit ihren Kindern von ihrem Vater – ist die Geschichte einer Mutter und ihres Sohnes, deren Liebe sie das Unglaubliche überleben lässt.« Psychologies ZUM SPECIAL
