We’ve finally made contact beyond Earth. Unfortunately, they’re not sending a welcome party…

Physicist Lucas Ramsay hoped to usher in a new technological age. However, instead of advancing science, his anti-gravity reactor triggers all-out anarchy… but the deadliest aftershock will come from beyond the stars. Across time and space, Lucas’ ground-breaking experiment throws an intergalactic realm into chaos. A sadistic race from deep space considers it an act of war and won’t rest until it annihilates every last one of its newfound enemy.

With Earth facing mass extermination, Lucas must help find a way to stop an onslaught so advanced it defies human understanding of physics and reality. Nothing is as it appears to be, challenging everyone’s faith in science and each other.
