The Hettians swarm through human territory unchallenged by Command leaving death and destruction in their wake.
Pregnant with twins, Adara fears for her family and her people. She wants to fight, to protect but doesn’t have the fire power to take on the Hettians. Short staffed and short on supplies, she questions every decision.
In the wake of the Hettians invasion, Adara, Decker and the Wayfarers gather information and resources to aid those few survivors. Enemies arise on multiple fronts. Flare and Sicarus escape their prison before the Hettians destroy them. Their enemies within Command blame them for the destruction while denying the Hettians are attacking.
The Lux becomes a way station for those escaping the Hettian invasion. With assistance from the Etiennes, Adara works to rescue survivors but also tries to let the unsuspecting stations and settlements know what is headed their way.
The closer to Command station, the less successful they are in evacuating people. All the long haul vessels the Wayfarers have work to rescue any humans seeking to escape the Hettian invasion.
Chaos, death, destruction, the Hettians are singularly focused on wiping out the human race as they plow through the stations and settlements. Who will they turn on next? Will any race be safe from them?
