Humanity isn't all they left behind.
Two years later, the world lives in fragile peace. But a clandestine search has begun...and a clock has started ticking.
Two years after first contact, Astral forces have established their fragile kingdom around the globe. Motherships occupy the cities. Shuttles patrol the lawless outlands. The pacifist class of Astrals known as Titans assist humans in running their alien empire while bloodthirsty Reptar peacekeepers ensure that order is kept. And unseen in the ships above, a third class of visitor calls the shots - the unseen Divinity, worshipped and feared by citizens in equal measure.
Meyer Dempsey sits on his plinth as Viceroy of Heaven's Veil, on the old site of Vail, Colorado. As with other Viceroys in the eight other world capitals, humanity's remains revere Meyer almost as a god. But below the surface, both colonies and outlands have begun to crumble with unrest.
Until now the rebellion has been quiet. Now desperation bubbles as they learn the Astrals have begun digging for an ancient device buried beneath the glowing blue Apex at Heaven's Veil.
But twin truths of the forthcoming alien war (or a possible alien apocalypse) have dawned at Benjamin Bannister's facility in Moab, sending plans into action: The Astrals have lost what they hoped to uncover.
And humanity's only chance is to find it first.

It doesn't turn toward religion.
No idea. I didn't read the print version. It's much better than Contact though.
Trevor. His balls are finally dropping.
Anytime something bad happened to Rog.
No. It was entertaining.
The book mentions aliens and religion in context to the story of aliens, panspermia, and history. It's science fiction. That this other reviewer is "tapping out" because the book correlates, very loosely, aliens and religion is a joke. That aliens could have had some relation to religion is impossible to avoid in any book that has aliens. Any book that has aliens will have some impact on religious beliefs. If that offends you, don't read science fiction or fantasy.
It is not a religious book at all....not even remotely so. If you like the series so far, continue. This book is much better than Contact in that the aliens are here and are in control.
