Thriller/Suspense/Sci-Fi/Fantasy Novel. Copyright © 2017 by Alex Sharpe

Everything was fine... Just another fine day at the park - a day with the family, and our dog... But then it began. All of the sudden they were here, without a name, without warning. They roamed the Earth devastating anything and everything in their path, hunting down light sources for a unknown reason. They were invisible, and impossible to catch, only when they take you do you see them. Out of nowhere people started disappearing all over the world, every night millions vanished. Odd stories seemingly fake turned into rumors, and then those rumors turned into truth. Somehow they teleport, their bodies or whatever they are made of appears electric, like a force that somehow has life, possibly alien of origin. We too have been hunted. They were nocturnal. They only came out at night. Everything seemed normal and fine during the day, but when nightfall came... All lights and sounds must be turned off before night, or else you are instantly vaporized from thin air, the only thing you see is a bright sudden flash of blue electricity, and then you are gone, with not a trace of you left. "Fresh Light" is what we call a light on at night, and that phrase means death. If you did so happen to get caught outside at nightfall, the only option you really had if you wanted to survive was to lie down on and facing the ground wherever you are, and not move until the sun rose up. Anywhere you are... Anywhere. You are not safe. This is our story. Everyone's story.

It could all end in a battle of light and darkness, heaven and hell. Fallen angels.
