They survived the alien visitation. But can they survive each other?
No-one had heard of Victoryville before. But when an alien spaceship appears, hovering over the town, the whole world suddenly knows its name.
After twenty-four hours and a failed military assault, the ship disappears without a trace. When the outside world restores communication to the town, thousands are reported missing.
Those who remain in Victoryville are irreparably changed. However, only some have been left with strange red marks upon their skin.
Quarantined from the outside world and segregated within, alliances are made and relationships are shattered, as everyone fights for the truth - and for their own survival.
The Time Of The Stripes
A great read! A character driven story that highlights a unique “first contact”. It’s great to see a strong female lead who isn’t trying to be Rambo. A very real story with characters who have to make hard decisions. It’s a too real story that shows how much damage can be done when we create divisions among our neighbors.
