CIA Agent Will Friede is on a top-secret intergalactic mission. Or so he thinks…

When he comes face-to-face with the Morleisx, an alien race with advanced technology set on conquering the cosmos, he discovers that he is in a much darker reality. Now an inmate in the Morleisx’s prison camp—Polorjx—on a strange planet called the Akrouix, he has two options: adapt or escape. But with the harsh living conditions of the camp and the abuse of power from both the Morleisx and the Chinese mafia, he realizes that adapting isn’t an option. 

When an alien invasion lands on Earth, Friede knows that any hope of rescue from the U.S. government is gone—he’s on his own. It’s up to him to rally all of the prisoners to make an escape together, a task that proves difficult when he finds that his fellow inmates from across the globe don’t trust each other, and they certainly don’t trust an American government agent. 

Together, this band of unlikely allies must not only face the perilous journey of escaping the Akrouix but uncover the reasons why they ended up there in the first place. The governments of Earth have much darker ties to the Akrouix than any of them could have imagined. 

Can Will Friede and his group of escapees put aside their differences to survive the treacherous terrain of the Akrouix? And more importantly, can they save the world?
