Can love survive as society collapses?
Corey McAllister lived through the first alien attack fourteen years ago. Plagued by nightmares of the giant Bugs that had infected him and made him a Haunt, he’s still leery of the government that detained him for his own protection.
Now, fully human with a PhD behind his name, he’s ready to embrace his future in aerospace engineering. But when the abandoned and forgotten alien beacons in our atmosphere send out a signal that causes a response from the former Haunts, Corey’s plans are delayed. He’s instead recruited to help find a way to stop the Bugs from returning to Earth.
Kitriona Vanetti was spared during the last attack when the Bugs passed her over to take her younger sister. Kit’s interest in insects came from a desire to be prepared for another invasion.
The entomologist has been enlisted to join Corey’s team. However, it’s clear her skills as a “bug doctor” will only be needed in a worst-case scenario.
Their attraction grows into a something stronger as they work to find a way to save the world. Another detainment for the Haunts is enacted. This time a secret, underground military installation in Raven Rock Mountain will keep the Haunts safe from any more alien signals as well as the hate groups lurking outside the gates.
Corey has been down this road before. The pressure is on to stop the Bugs from returning before society decides to go with Plan B and destroy the Haunts once and for all. As Corey gets closer to Kit, he discovers the women he loves could be an even bigger threat to humanity than the Bugs.
