Are you sure
you know the difference?
with an alien colony on her secluded ranch oasis in an industrial
section of San Diego had been idyllic. When Rita is suddenly
abducted by an authoritarian, tyrannical alien race, she must
face a horrendous decision: surrender her beloved Phaedran colony
to the Hagions to become their slaves, or watch helplessly as
the Hagions slowly destroy humanity molecule by molecule through
a silent, unseen nanotechnology assault....
See Table of Contents
To compound the problem, the Phaedrans seem inexplicably passive
about their situation, offering no resistance to their captors-and
worse, no cooperation in their salvation. It will take everything
Rita has to outwit the Hagion race and free her colony, all while
stopping the insidious destruction of humanity-a species Rita
isn't sure she likes very much anymore.
Rita finds cooperation from local astrophysicist Jason Childress,
who has become unexpectedly sensitized to the Phaedran colony's
mindlink. Jason's efforts to understand the increase in day-length
and a sudden exponential global surge in natural disasters compels
him to seek out Rita, if for nothing more than a receptive ear.
Not finding her, he impulsively arranges an expedition to Antarctica
with a colleague, where the discovery of inexplicable cosmic
events suggests an influencing force for which Jason has no preparation.
Jason intuits that the changes in the galactic neighborhood,
the tumultuous events occurring on Earth, and the lengthened
day are all related
and he is certain Rita knows why.
So begins the impossible war against an intractable alien force.
