Jen Taverson is watching the Perseid meteor shower on a hot August night when the visitors, alien beings, arrive in the field before her in a strange, glowing formation.
Everyone she tells about it thinks she has had a hallucination, except Rob McCord, a former international photojournalist whose parents disappeared while looking for evidence of UFOs. The Hudson River Valley where they live has been a locus for sightings since the 1960s, especially the town of Pine Bush. They realize soon enough that the aliens are real.
The visitors have come seeking ancient markers in the earth for a portal that has been hidden for over a hundred million years and to prevent one of their own from reaching it.
