For years, man has looked to the sky to find out if life from other worlds really exists, if we are not alone. The answer is a solid yes, but, we were looking the wrong way! Unbeknownst to us, we had already made contact, but did not know what we were looking at. Planet earth was inhabited many years before humans came into existence. The aliens came to turn planet earth into something that would ensure their future survival, a giant fly trap, and we are the flies!
this is very similar to that new movie with Channing Tatum and mila kunis where aliens already came and were farming humans to sustain immortality. great book so far though 
Eerie, almost spooky start to a book.  This is the way to do it.  Draws the readers right in.
I like this. it's not my usual kind of story but it's really great!
Did I just get a generic "thank you", Funkysteve? I wonder if you cut and paste that. If someone reads my stuff and  they comment in a thoughtful way, I make sure I respond in a thoughtful way, not "thanksforreadingandcommenting".
I wondered if the info found on mars was going to lead back there, like a glowing alien glimpsed, WE WILL NEVER BE SAFE,  that sort of thing...
Very interesting book so far. I like how you keep it realistic and following the basic rules of science. I have to say I am already a big fan of your work. Keep it up!
