The insectoid Prax landed on Earth approximately 12,000 years ago and immediately went into hiding.
Now that it seems safe to do so, the ravenous carnivores have awoken from their long slumber to feast on what they call “The Meats”—meaning humans.
Humans are good at war. But so are the Prax. And, as book two begins, the situation is dire. Approximately 2.8 billion humans have been killed. Russia has gone dark. Central America has been overrun. India is a “farm” from which the aliens harvest roughly 65,000 people a day, a number equal to India’s birthrate. And that, according to the CIA, is what the so-called Crickets have in mind for the U.S.
That’s the situation when something completely unforeseen occurs, shocking both the Prax and the humans and putting both on the defensive.
Marine Corps Captain Lester Evans will fight the menace while FEMA manager Cassie Lang will save as many lives as she can. Will their efforts, and those of many others, be enough to save mankind?
