The aliens invaded our world in the year 2026. They hovered there for three whole months, while the world watched and waited, wondering what they wanted with us.

Then, on September 3rd, 2026, they activated, hunting us down with a terrifying power to immobilize us with their telepathy, paralyzing us where we stood, allowing them to eat at their leisure.

Sergeant Cameron Shipley lost nearly everyone and everything to the gorgons in that invasion. 16 years later, he and mankind are eking out an existence in the shadows: hiding, trying desperately to survive. But with each passing day he is finding that more and more is being kept from him, and events and developments are proving that mankind, even after sixteen long years of occupation, is still at war with itself.
