Two alien species have arrived on Earth, each with very different intentions. Ten billion pacifistic Lapropods, fleeing their dying world, have inadvertently caused the virtual extermination of the human race. Nearly sixty years later, the armored and violent NorCons arrived, enslaving the Lapropods and nearly completing the job they started.

Today, humans and Lapropods are trapped on Earth, their fates dictated by the harsh, uncaring NorCons. Humanity seems bound for extinction until one scared, lonely Lapropod steps forward to carry out a confused and uncertain rebellion. Bibix could bring freedom to his people - if he can enlist the aid of renegade humans, who have several good reasons to despise him and his kind.

Bibix recruits Carl Tippet, a human soldier, to help him learn the art of war. Carl's hatred of the Lapropods will test Bibix in ways he never thought possible. While his exploits in the harsh Alaskan environment inspire the peaceable alien, the man's violent nature terrifies him. Can he win Carl's trust and liberate both their peoples, or is his quest doomed to end in failure?
