A "fast-paced and engrossing" (Publishers Weekly) sci-fi novel that asks the question: What would you do to survive?
When the black spheres filled the sky, anyone caught beneath them would vanish in a flash of blue-white light. Huddled indoors, the survivors were unaware if what was happening in their neighborhoods was happening worldwide.
Josh is trapped at home with his father, whose sanity is starting to erode from the endless confinement. Megs struggles to survive in a hotel parking garage where she sees human nature at its worst. For both of them, food, water, and time are running out.
And hovering patiently above them is an extraterrestrial enemy that has inexplicably declared war against humanity…
