A novel by

Life is persistent. It can survive in the most hostile of environments, emerging in the most unlikely places, upsetting that delicate balance between predator and prey. They've awakened from an ageless sleep. Quietly taking over the world one household at a time. Moving in the dead of night as they replace those smiling neighbors across the street with an unholy union of man and beast. They've waited eons to reclaim this world as their own, and when the balance of power tilts in their favor, the feeding will begin. Until that time they make every effort to remain hidden from view, relying on man's ignorance of the true nature of the cosmos to mask their movements as their influence spreads. Only one man stands in their way. Sam Hardin defeated them in the past, or so he thought, for what should have died in the fire at his cabin didn't. After losing his wife and daughter to this creature's vengeance, Sam shoulders his role of executioner, and with his son at his side sets out to conduct a war against this growing menace. There is only room for one at the top of the food chain.
