What if, against all odds, Earth possessed a resource so unique that aliens were willing to go to war with each other to get it? And what if the laws of probability made it inconceivable that this could have come about by chance? Would that imply divine intervention? |
That's the question that drives Steve Kowalski when he learns that two species of aliens are about to engage in combat high over the Colorado Rockies. One group, the Guardians, has come to Earth to shield humanity from the rogue aliens they call the Luugs. The first shots have already been fired, and a Guardian ship is down. Alone in the mountains, Steve finds the injured flyer and bonds with him telepathically, beginning an odyssey that spans the galaxy.
