    With the human population ravaged by a series of devastating plagues, the alien Chtorr arrive to begin the final phase of their invasion.

Lieutenant James McCarthy has grown to manhood under the shadow of the terrifying invasion of the Chtorr. As a student, he learned all he could to understand their alien behavior. As a Special Forces commando, he made violent first contact. Now this battle-hardened warrior faces a profound challenge.
