Prior to the arrival of the Shylmahn, a blanket of normalcy lay comfortably over the Britton family, a quiet ordinariness that would stand in sharp contrast to what their lives would become.
Their individual stories play out across the epic landscape of the invasion, plots intertwining as each narrative progresses toward the inevitable climax at which all paths converge for one final confrontation.
From the perspective of the Shylmahn, it is not an invasion at all but a grand adventure, an exciting journey to a new world. The epic interweaves the stories of EsJen, TohPeht and NehLoc through the stories of the human characters, providing a shocking contrast to the overall conflict.
This is not ‘slam, bam, welcome to earth’ stuff. There will be no fairy dust sprinkled into the atmosphere to miraculously kill off the bad guys.
This really could happen.
