Desperation, loyalty, ingenuity, and love are a powerful combination
Safely back in Las Cruces, New Mexico from their cross-country journey, Kerri Elias, Aaron Vincent, and Will Daigle find that they’re anything but safe.
The Black-eyed Children have won. Earth’s population is being subjugated, used for a source of the neural energy the Children feed on. The few ragged survivors are hanging on as best they can in a depopulated world where even finding food is a daily struggle.
But Kerri clings to the words of Saul, one of the mysterious Pleiadians, who told her that she and she alone had the ability to stop the Children from destroying humanity. Fighting her sense that it’s too late to do anything, she, Aaron, and Will, and the brilliant young scientist Cameron Sterling, try desperately to find a way to fight an enemy that seems implacable and invulnerable.
Hiding out in an abandoned school, the four of them have no choice but to keep fighting, and to hope against hope that they will find the Children’s Achilles heel. Because if they don’t, it won’t be long before there is not a single human left alive on planet Earth.
