Paradox

On the two year anniversary of Lisa’s disappearance, Detective Jake Cross vows to quit the force to find his missing wife. Hours later, a devastating alien invasion reduces Earth to ashes. Jake awakens in a strange hospital where a secret message on a paper cup advises him, “They are watching.” Thus begins his journey through an alien controlled Earth.

Seven billion dead, yet his heart only mourns for one. Jake joins forces with the last human colony, a somber community reeking of death. Battle weary survivors wander the underground city, their eyes devoid of hope. The humans have food, medicine, and ammunition to survive another week. Anointed the Great Liberator, our last hope, Jake is advised, “Our destiny is decided by the sacrifices that we make and the ones that we don’t.” The reluctant detective rejects his fate until he learns of his wife’s capture and impending execution.

In a deadly race against time, he leads the survivors to the alien metropolis to fight mutating aliens with futuristic weapons, unmanned flying motorcycles, hormone injected canines, and an evil as infinite as time. Mabus, the ruthless alien leader will not rest until every human has been exterminated. Jake must kill this immortal enemy to stave off his wife’s death sentence, but how can he be expected to defeat a God when thousands have already failed?

With time running out, Jake confronts the ultimate sacrifice, rescue his wife or prevent our extinction.

  1. Awesome! Love it! An oppotunity to explore both the best and the worst in equal measure. Or not equally at all. What a wonderful tale you weave. I trust the agent you are looking for will appear and recognize the possibilities here. 🙂

  2. Offers a nice blend of sci-fi and turmoil our planet faces today. Reminded me of the Terminator series a little bit. The plot and story line were fun. It looks like it has potential for future development. See where it takes you.

  4. Plot is strong. This must be true love. Then the paradox is in choosing between true love and humanity — super strong. Best of luck, may god give you all the brilliant insights in making this into a masterpiece 😀
