Suffering under the lash of the alien Visitors' control, the human underground have risked their lives for decades as they desperately try to find ways to thwart their reptilian overlords' dire plan.For while the Visitors claim to be Earth's friends, they instead seek only to exploit our planet's lifeblood-water - and slaughter all humankind. But now the Underground has hope, because our call for help, sent out to the stars long ago, has been answered by agents of another alien race. They have come to Earth, to aid the Underground in defeating the Visitors. But even as the humankind and our new allies work with the Underground to forestall the culmination of the Visitors' terrible plan, the question remains: Can our new alien friends really be trusted? Or will they help us to defeat one alien oppressor merely to become our new masters?
