Twilla thought it would be a fun way to spend the summer after college – a short-term mission trip to an exciting, backward planet called “Earth” in the outer reaches of the galaxy. She expected to meet new friends and have a nice little adventure.

It doesn't turn out that way.

Soon after landing, a patrol ship manned by the grim aliens, the Norgratz, who claim the territory encompassing the Earth, chases away her missions ship. She is left stranded, desperate and alone, and has no choice but to seek shelter with a human family. There, she stumbles upon the answer to an ancient mystery that her people have been seeking for centuries, a secret that could throw the entire galaxy into turmoil.

A secret that the Norgratz will do anything to suppress, even if it means interstellar war.

This exciting new novel, by award-winning author, Pete Koziar, blends action, spirituality and hard science fiction into a wild ride set in an otherwise quiet little community, as ordinary people are called to become heroes in a great adventure.

I wanted to have some fun, taking an alien missionary and dropping her in the middle of a rural community, while she tries to answer questions about her own faith, as she challenges the humans she comes into contact with. I also wanted to play the game of "what if" there actually were alien races out there? How would God work in their lives, and what would happen if one of them came here?
