A year ago, the Earth survived an attack by a race of aliens bent on their destruction called the Alva. Haven remembers watching news reports about it with her family and being glad that she lived far enough away from where the aliens had landed that it didn't affect her very much. She's never met an alien, never seen one - aside from on TV - and she's fine with that. She likes her normal, routine life just fine, thanks very much.
Earth is in chaos. It's a sort of organized chaos to be sure, but when a planet is inhabited by the Alva, a hostile race of aliens from a far-off world, chaos is inevitable. The Randoran from planet Dorn are a warrior race who have feuded with the Alva for centuries, and when they discover that the Alva have taken Earth for their own, they want to help protect the humans if they can. And so a rescue mission is mounted for Earth, and they arrive in style, speaking with the humans to assure them they come in peace.
