Keith Stoner lay in suspended animation in an alien spacecraft—rescued after fifteen years. When he awoke, he discovered he was more than himself—an alien intelligence and technology had merged with his body. Soon human leaders notice Keith’s unusual new powers and covet them for themselves. Stoner must convince them that this power is more curse than blessing—or die trying.
Jo Camerata, the ambitious young student who fell in love with Keith Stoner, is now head of Vanguard Industries which has recovered an alien ship. As a result, Jo’s company now controls the incredible wealth of technology aboard the ship as well as the fortune it reaps in - not to mention control of Keith Stoner.
What Camerata does not know, however, is that someone else has been awake, someone who dwells deep within the recesses of Stoner’s mind. The alienate presence that has kept Stoner alive for so long is now free and fully intends to explore our world and will let nothing stand in its way.
