They've been visiting us for decades. Monitoring. Infiltrating. Stealing nuclear weapons for when their war comes to Earth. That day has arrived.

An alien fleeing the genocide of her race escapes to Earth, bringing the children who are the only hope for the future and hiding them across the planet. Posing as human, she seduces and manipulates a retired Navy SEAL into protecting and helping her prepare a preemptive strike against her enemies before they destroy all of humanity in their quest to kill the children. But somewhere along the way, something happens that she wasn't prepared for. Human emotions.
