One young mother takes on the world to get back what they stole from her.
After the ruthless Merus invade Earth and start taking whatever they want, humans can only run and hide in hopeless defeat. But not Nora. All she has is hope, and it fuels her fight to get back everything they took from her. For her love, her light, her life… she will stop at nothing to get them all back.
I was only a baby when it happened. I didn't know the panic that had swept over the world that day. A large sphere, about half the size of the moon, was discovered traveling through space and it was headed straight for Earth. A global killer – the end of the world was on its way. Then, as it approached, it suddenly slowed and merely stopped to orbit around our terrified planet. People scrambled to figure out what to do next, but they ran out of time. Exactly one day after it arrived, that strange orb in space simply vanished, leaving everyone on Earth baffled. It would remain a mystery for decades.
At last, one fateful day, the leaders of the world synchronized a global address. They announced they had come here from that mysterious object in the sky more than twenty-five years ago and their numbers were already spread across the lands, living and looking like any other human being. Long since before the broadcast, they had occupied nearly every top corporate, government, and military office throughout the world. They were the Merus and they had total power over Earth. Humans were now obsolete.
While some of us ran and hid, the rest went to war. Facing the Merus, however, was like nothing we could have imagined. They could do things… things that could have only been conjured up from the depths of fiction. So even though we outnumbered the Merus five to one, it didn't take them long to execute a full occupation of the planet. After two years of all out war, many of us had given up hope.
