When Washington D.C Homicide Detective Sam Hardin is called to investigate a gruesome killing he stumbles upon the theft of an ancient alien dagger that had been discovered in the barren wastes of Antarctica. But this is no ordinary dagger. It has an odd effect on anyone who comes into contact with it, for it contains the essence of an alien race that once ruled a young Earth.
Partially disabled Vietnam vet Jack Griffith has been counting down his final days as the cancer, compliments of his service in South East Asia, slowly consumes his body. Called upon to clear a clogged storm drain he is accidentally stabbed by the dagger that had been stolen to repay a gambling debt. With his lifeblood flowing into the waters of the storm drain, surrounded by rats as death approaches, he is given another chance at life when that alien presence invades his body.
In a takeover that starts at the molecular level, Jack surrenders everything that once made him human, as he becomes a host to this alien life form. He is driven to search out the only one who can stand in the way of their return. A legendary god who appears in the guise of Sam's brain damaged four-year-old son, whose fathomless black eyes hold close the secrets of life and death.
Sam must come to terms with his own demons in time to protect his son from Jack’s vengeance. They go head to head in a fight to the death, while in the balance hangs the future of all mankind, and his place at the top of the food chain.
Will mankind awaken to new masters?
Or will good prevail?
