New York City has been ground zero for an alien incursion targeting the human race. No one knows what they’re doing or whether an all-out invasion is coming, but the clock is ticking. Mexico City, Cairo, Dhaka, Mumbai, Shanghai, Moscow—they’ve all seen humans turned into Guinea pigs to satisfy alien curiosity.
Colonel Clyde Aldrich is the latest commander of American forces trying to keep these alien researchers at bay. But that is made harder when the chief engineer, Lev Underwood, falls for a private who may or may not be part of some nefarious plot. From Clyde’s point of view, this is all very suspicious.
From George “Tank” Tankersley’s point of view, he just wanted to retreat and lick his wounds. He had already seen more fighting than a teenager could handle, and now he’s ready for the relative quiet of four years in the Army delivering canned peaches to the backside of nowhere. He doesn’t need adventure, but when he finds himself in the middle of one more battle of good versus evil, he throws himself into the fight.
