“This rollicking book weaves together the stories of a handful of characters whose seemingly normal lives become marked by unexpected, bizarre and apocalyptic events.” —Kirkus Reviews “Dan Brown’s religious thrillers collide with the horror and sci-fi of Alien in this spellbinding book.” —Foreword Clarion It is 1969 as teenaged heiress, Kimberly Martin, enters a seedy Georgia bar, desperate to end her haunting dreams of alien abduction. But, she instinctively knows they are more than just dreams. Aliens are preparing her womb for an implanted hybrid and she has a plan she hopes will stop them in their tracks. But Kim has no idea that her act of defiance is about to unleash a stream of events that will catapult her, her family, and her friends to the precipice of a plot to overtake the world. After hearing confessions at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Kimberly’s brother, Benny, learns in a vision that Kimberly is a candidate for insemination and that it is his job to shepherd Earth’s people into a new dawn. Meanwhile, Sarah Matheson, Texas Bible college student, is visited by what she thinks is an angel who performs a strange procedure on her.
