In this sequel to The Truth About Terra, Zorell, Evan and Anneke are pulled through to an unknown world in their hovercraft. They arrive in an ocean where they rescue two humans, Questa and Landon from a kayak and learn about this divided world where humans are discriminated against by the local Waxon, humanoids with web hands and signs of gills in their bodies.
Questa recognizes Zorell but how can this be so in a far world in an unknown universe?
Enter a world where the line between computers and humanity is blurred, electronic butterflies compete with intelligent bees and the way home to Terra seems to be all but impossible.
In the year 2991 on the old calendar, the opening of the new portal between Terra, the planet that was historically called Earth, and Mars was a momentous occasion. Not only was it wider and could accommodate the largest vehicles but it also held a buffer chamber inside that gradually changed the gravity so humans and the intelligent bees that now inhabited both planets didn't suffer from the abrupt lose or gains of weight. Minister of Refugees for the Republic of Redstone, Zorell Norwell knew that the gravity on Mars was only a third as powerful as Terra's and the new portal would help travellers going in both directions overcome disorientation.
