One day an overweight slacker named Roen wakes up with a strange voice in his head. He soon comes to learn that the voice is a disembodied alien who crashed to earth millions of years ago. The alien, called Tao, is part of a cohort of aliens called Quasing that crash landed together. Since the fall of the Roman empire, the aliens have been waging a war to decide the best means to get home – the pragmatic Genjix do not care if their methods destroy humankind while the more gentle people of Tao’s tribe are prepared to take a less destructive approach.
“Tipping his hat to both science fiction novels and comic books, Chu delivers a narrative that is at times pulse-pounding, laugh-out-loud funny and thoughtful. Part James Bond, part Superman, part Orphanage. There’s something here for everyone.”
– Myke Cole, author of Control Point and Fortress Frontier
