Drawn by Earth's vast potential for life, the Elquin set their sights on our planet as their new home. Their ﬁrst goal-a mission to inﬁltrate the planet and scope out its people. Already armed with a hatred for humanity, Taren Waters is more than happy to help with the plan. But when Taren's view of humans is unexpectedly altered, his actions cause the invasion to go awry-and it's not long before tensions between the two species begin to boil.
