Seven billion people on Earth go about their daily lives, and no one is prepared when a global EMP slows the world to a crawl. Within days alien soldiers line the streets, and life will never be the same. In the midst of chaos, Rachael Hill struggles to adapt to the new order, doing her best to keep herself and her cat alive.
On a ship far above the planet surface, Peter just got his new Earth name, and can’t even remember his identity from the last world he visited. It’s another day on the job, one more planet on a never-ending list. That is, until Rachael bumps into him, dropping exotic objects all around his feet. His culture taught him females should be obeyed and protected, but he never had an urge to leave himself at a woman’s mercy until now.

Adam always had a strong sense of duty, and when he feels obliged to accept command of the Palmetto, the starship’s name bothers him almost as much as going into war and being separated from his family. As time passes, he suspects the ship has a personal aversion to him. Systems break down just as he needs to use them and not even internal communications work.
To Alexandra, things could hardly get any worse than her husband disappearing, being declared missing in action, and eventually buried. Again. Moving on and looking forward seems like a healthy idea, but it’s more difficult than it sounds. Especially since an unknown enemy wants her dead, and will stop at nothing to see it happen.
