Largely based on the theories of Charles Fort, The book tells of the war to free humanity from Vitons. Invisible at first, the telepathic parasitic energy beings feed off the misery and strife of humanity and react to their discovery in a violent manner. Can humanity find a weapon against the Vitons?
