Life is okay for Torbin. A successful career, a happy marriage. Then something strange happens … and again. So he begins to wonder: has it all been a lie? There is someone who claims to have the answers, a man returned from the past … from the dead. Only it seems someone else wants the truth to remain hidden.
An alien visits Earth to study its people. Disguised as a human, her involvement goes far beyond mere observation. She becomes embroiled in a struggle to save what remains of humanity.
Meanwhile an old and powerful enemy emerges from the depths of space to offer assistance against an even greater threat. But co-operating with them may be a risk too far. Could they ever be trusted?
Options appear limited, as more civilisations become transformed by a relentless and seemingly unstoppable entity. Can the normal rules of war any longer apply?
