Desperation, fear, and love are a powerful combination.
Back In Las Cruces, New Mexico, following their harrowing cross-country mission, Boundary Enforcement Agents Kerri Elias, Aaron Vincent, and Will Daigle find that they're anything but safe. Earth's population is being subjugated en masse, their neural energy harvested and used as sustenance for an invading army of ruthless extra-terrestrials. What few ragged survivors are left are hanging on as best they can in a largely depopulated world, running in small, isolated groups scrounging for resources while avoiding capture. The war seems all but over, and the Black-eyed Children have won.
In these darkest of hours, though, hope still survives. Kerri, in particular, clings to the words of Saul-a member of the mysterious alien race known as the Pleiadians-who once told her that she and she alone had the ability to stop the Children from destroying humanity. While she may not understand exactly why this is so, she has no choice but to believe he was right. Against all odds, she, Aaron, and Will, along with a brilliant young scientist named Cameron Sterling, try desperately to find some way to fight an enemy that seems both implacable and invulnerable. Will they find the answer they're looking for before it's too late? Because if they don't, it won't be long before there is not a single human left alive on planet Earth.
