Having just started an alien invasion, most heroes would feel a certain level of responsibility…
Scattered across the globe after Elliot teleported the team using the broken alien sphere, from a remote archaeological dig in the Sahara to a resort paradise in the Bahamas and a tropical rainforest in Papua New Guinea, the team has their work cut out for them as they are forced to find their way home, or at least as far as the Strand hotel (Hey, they have good muffins!).
For some of them, it might be a much-needed break from the constant threat of elimination. For others, there is trepidation as they are ordered to undertake a series of dangerous missions by the mysterious Coldhorn Initiative.
But as well as the oncoming alien armada, there’s still Hellinix, the Blood of Breogan, and the Children of Gaia left to deal with.
Will Elliot ever start accepting responsibility for his blunders? Is there really a country called Arseholeville? Is a shark moat actually an effective intruder deterrent?
Because it all feels a bit like the Coldhorn Initiative has the team fiddling while Rome burns, since somewhere out there, Hellinix is moving forward with its plans and all the evidence points to the inevitable conclusion that they want the aliens to come. Hell, they seem to be counting on it.
This science-fiction thriller is a dark and humorous tale of wayward superheroes, the evil megacorporation stalking them, and the teamwork it will take to save the world.
