Summary[edit | edit source]

While Max promises the Elf King to kill the other stonekeepers once and for all, he secretly is recruiting them to enter their memories so they can kill the Voice with their powers and the mountain giant, Chronos. Meanwhile, the elves fire on the academy's ship where Alyson Hunter and 2 other recruits are to fly their mech suits to the city of Lucien, which has already been destroyed by Max. The three are then joined by Navin when they crash-land. They are repeatedly pursued by shadows, gas organisms that need hosts to survive, and one takes over their classmate. They are saved by the elf Riva Ash who shows them that the inhabitants of Lucien have moved underground, and they reunite with the Resistance and Balan. When shadows attack, Riva attempts to evacuate everyone via the underground trains. Navin, Alyson and Riva's advisor, the robot General Pil, get rid of as much shadows as they could before they're forced to escape to a portal where they borrow mech suits from Pil's parents. They travel to Frontera, the Resistance's base, to attempt to launch an attack on the Elf King's kingdom, Valcor. Meanwhile, the four stone keepers arrive at a memory of Valcor, where the Voice lives. During the confrontation, Chronos is killed, and Max decides he cannot continue on his current path any longer, after being reminded about everything he has done and seeing he was simply a corpse being kept alive by the Voice. The Voice accepts this, and takes Max's life away. Before dying, he tells them to visit Algos Island for Trellis. The remaining three stonekeepers arrive in the real world and save a ship full of Elf King followers that was about to explode, and are able to make them faithful to prince Trellis. They then encounter Riva, who explains what happened to Navin.
