Four young people — Ryan and Elliot, two long time friends who had served together in the U.S. Navy, now members of the Moonlit Bay Police Force, and two young women, Stacie and Penny, who grew up as neighbors in a small mid-western town, soon became fast friends but were not quite ready to take it any further, but from all outward appearances it seemed as if they had.
The four main characters looked out for one another, especially the men who took it upon themselves to be the women's protectors. Whenever the women seemed to be in trouble, which was usually the case, they called on their male friends for help. The fact that their two friends were Police Officers only added to their feeling of safety and security in a world so far away from what they once knew as home. As their friendship deepened their love for one another became more than that of siblings...they were falling in love, but couldn't make up their minds with whom.
Due to Penny's awareness it didn’t take long for all four to become involved in a series of mishaps that became very dangerous and possibly life-threatening. Thus began a strange, dangerous, and unnerving journey for the four young people. It would take them through a series of kidnappings, imprisonments, and the assistance of an unusual ally to escape from their cells and gain their freedom.
Determined to discover who their kidnappers were, they ran into more barriers than they expected. It was only when a more seasoned Detective, who had been on the Force longer than anyone else, heard their story and in spite of its seemingly impossible probability, caught his interest and decided not only to help them but to see their quest to the end.
All five set out on an unusual journey that would take them to the edge of reason and beyond. They became involved with a life form they couldn’t believe existed and a group of intruders that were never actually defined as to who they really were — whether human or alien. Intruders whose disappearance under a catastrophic eruption without revealing their identity left them in a quandary as to where they came from.
