A young man’s curiosity places him on the edge of mankind’s extinction. As the boy who provoked death itself, he invites an alien race to rain havoc upon the Earth. But Otis Becker knows more than the experts can guess, with access to information he can’t explain. As the world hurtles towards oblivion, he has to convince the world he can deliver them from alien enslavement. All while avoiding the aliens, the media, curious strangers and a government eager to appease the aliens.

Twelve years after Earth’s first encounter with aliens, they receive a return visit. Only this time, the aliens aren’t stranded and helpless. Instead they’re ravenous and eager to devour all in their path.
