A galactic war begins at dawn … so tonight they’re going to party like it’s 2020.
Marcus is ready to put a terrible year behind him. The virus and social unrest made his first semester at University a memorable one for all the wrong reasons.
It’s New Year’s Eve and tomorrow, he’ll become a legal adult. So tonight, with his loved ones, they’ll race against the darkness to summon a brighter future.
But Marcus can’t shake the feeling that something is off. Maybe it’s conditioning, or maybe it’s the series of unwelcome guests pushing the party toward chaos. Underestimating his abilities, Marcus takes a step too far, forcing his family and friends to fight over his well-being as an unidentified object appears in the sky.
All celebration ends once an artificial intelligence discloses the arrival of friendly extraterrestrials sent to stop another alien force bent on enslaving the planet.
Now the galactic clock is ticking, and according to the AI, Marcus is the key to humanity’s defenses against the imminent invasion by these hostile outsiders.
Can an artificial emissary be trusted? Or are Marcus’s friends right to doubt the alien’s intentions? The world has changed irrevocably as zero day begins.
The party is over, and humanity is fighting for their lives.

As the doomsday clock continues its countdown to the Confederation’s invasion, Marcus is running out of time to get his personal life in order.
Can he live up to his family’s idea of always moving forward? Or will he sink humanity’s chance to reach the stars? Either way, Marcus is learning what the Federation already knows: the ability to choose is the most powerful force in the universe.
Trusting an alien is hard … figuring out which alien is trustworthy might be impossible.
Marcus carries the weight of the cosmos on his shoulders. Still, he loves being one of the chosen enrolled in the alien-driven education tract at his university.
This extraterrestrial Federation always said he was important, so they’re taking the next logical step by inviting him to join their mysterious research Cohort.
If he survives selection, Marcus will solidify himself as one of the elites tasked with preparing humanity to face an alien Confederation bent on enslaving Earth. The simulated realities he experiences during this Subsumption research creates critical data the Federation needs to understand human nature, choice, and to integrate worlds.
But the alien experimentation proves more physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing than Marcus ever imagined, pushing him to the breaking point.
If the conspiracy theories are right, though, he might be aligning with the wrong aliens.
