United Nations diplomat Lauren Stewart visited with her father in his Harlem home. Until they sensed its presence... felt the vibrations rattling the earth beneath them ... heard the strange hum intensifying into a loud throbbing that emanated from everywhere at once... saw it, the glimmering massive round vessel drifting above them. They came from another planet, along with others, in spaceships that were miles long, hovering over cities throughout the world. And life for the entire human race would never be the same.
