Millville, USA – a small town like countless others – until it is sealed by a mysterious, invisible dome. Brad Carter manages to slip through a time-phase into a wondrous parallel world where he meets aliens from another dimension.  Ostensibly simple purple flowers, they are really a complex data storage system with extraordinary knowledge that can turn Earth into a paradise – or a hell.  The aliens propose a partnership in a great cosmic scheme.  But what is their true nature? What are their actual intentions? And how will Earth react to its first encounter with an intelligence no other world has been able to understand – or stop? Cover art by Jim Warren.
