A menace is poised to strike humans and aliens alike...
Overlords and humanity battle to claim Earth in a war as old as the alien domination of the planet. Yet with each new offensive comes stunning new revelations—exposing mysteries that were unfathomable before Skydark but are now quite real and deadly. Still, hope lies in the brilliant counteroffensive led by the Cerberus rebels, for whom success means nothing less than returning Earth to mankind.
A RACE RESTORED
An exotic combination of reptilian and human DNA, the Najah are the revitalized original foot soldiers of the Earth's ancient alien masters, the Annunaki. Having survived the megacull of humanity, these half-cobra warriors vow to avenge their near extinction and usher in a new age on Earth. From a massive, underground war base in northern India, this monstrous force launches its cleansing fire. Kane and his allies have one hope—a renegade female Najah, reptilian and ruthless, whose alliance is both a promise... and a threat.
Kane opened fire with his Sin-Eater again
"Lakesh, we've got trouble. I just hit Durga with an implosion grenade, and all it did was knock the wind out of him."
The Sin-Eater's heavy slugs tore into sections of bared flesh, but no blood trickled from the scaleshorn meat. Durga lifted his head, golden eyes filled with fury and disdain for the human who simply would not die.
"Keep fighting, mammal," Durga growled. "The longer you survive, the more time you give your friends to make peace with their gods."
"What makes you think you'll survive killing me?" Kane called back.
Durga laughed, rising to rest on the coiled trunk of his serpentine lower half. He hadn't recovered fully yet, but scales began to form over the flesh that had been scoured by the implosion grenade. "You amuse me, Kane. I'll name my first extermination camp after you."
