During a simulation, Owen comes uncovers the existence of a powerful relic long considered a legend-the Trident of Eden. Now two secret organizations will stop at nothing to take possession of this artifact-the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order.

Owen and his friends have lost. They managed to do something incredible, but were defeated nonetheless. When they located the first piece of an ancient and powerful relic long considered a legend—the Trident of Eden—it seemed little could stop them. This piece was sought by the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order, but before either organization could take the piece, it was stolen by an unknown third party. The tenuous relationship between the teens fractured—Owen and his friend Javier taking sides with the Assassins, the others with the Templars. Now there are still two pieces of the Trident of Eden to find, and both groups are determined not to repeat their mistakes. The next piece is said to have been buried with the Mongol warlord Genghis Khan, whose tomb has never been found. Teens on either side of the conflict will have to go deep into simulations in war-torn Mongolian China in a race against time to discover the next piece, and ensure their safety before their enemies find it first.
