Amid over a decade-long war, Xander Williams finds himself as a soldier-in-training in what’s left of the current military. After several months in cryostasis, he awakens to a new reality. As he discovers the modern world that has befallen him, survivors left to fight live on ships in space, since Earth has turned into a warzone, plagued by vile beings. These entities are bent on life’s annihilation. The light humanity once had turns dim, and their faith is tested like none before. Everyone’s memories, serving as the last connections to the world they once knew, are vague, including Xander’s. One person he cares about is a woman named Leona who gives him the strength to live. The only thing they know for certain is the way they feel for one another. However, as their memories return and the history of the war reveals itself, not everyone and everything are who they appear to be-especially each other.
