Eternity has a new beginning.
With the human race decimated, only a handful of survivors still wander the planet. They’ve forgotten the Astrals, and they’ve forgotten their pasts, ready for a fresh start…or at least that’s how it was supposed to happen. In a small desert village without memory, the Lightborn labor unseen – while in the Mullah stronghold beyond, Clara fights an old battle to free the minds of mankind. She’s come up against a wall. She’s fallen into a trap. And now, finally, the walls have begun to crumble.
The Astrals linger unseen, unable to leave the planet. But now they face a challenge they’ve never seen before: a new human mindscape that persists despite their best efforts to erase it, a will that refuses to die.
The Archetypes rise, but their chore is an impossible one. They must infiltrate the collective on their own terms and perhaps save what little humanity still holds in its grasp…or force the planet’s deadlocked overlords to destroy the human race for good.
This relentless tale of colonization and alien empire is the seventh and final book in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engine series, and many more.
