Radiation from the stellar explosion less than 150 light years away smashed Earth into a new ice age.  Tornadoes devastated the world, leaving destruction, death and desolation in their wake.  Worst of all, the human race found itself sterile. The Zetas, strange people with  suddenly-acquired psychic powers were made the scapegoats, but even during the hounding and extermination that followed, few could grasp what had really happened – an alien intelligence, riding on the shock waves of that supernova, had broken through the atmosphere to take up residence in the human brain.   Who would inherit the Earth?
