As Sean digs to the heart of this conspiracy, he learns that a ruthless and clandestine group of Americans known as the Foundation, whose members occupy positions within the highest echelons of the United States government and defense industry, has known for decades the existence of extraterrestrials and their secret history on the planet, a detailed history dating back to the years in the wake of World War II. Since then, the Foundation has studied them, collaborated with them, and now is intent on destroying them. Sean discovers that a horrific episode from his past that led to his dismissal from the Marines stemmed from his own incredible encounter with these creatures. In a penultimate revelation, Sean learns of their pervasive existence within human society and their potential plans for a catastrophic invasion. The final, shocking secret is delivered by Dr. Rosenstein, who reveals a deeper connection to Sean than he could have possibly imagined, and which, ultimately, contributed to his family’s disappearance and their lives subsequently hanging in the balance. Sloan leads Sean to an Air Force base that is the Foundation’s epicenter of extraterrestrial study and research, where they will attempt a daring rescue of his family. Dr. Rosenstein, meanwhile, aided by a rogue extraterrestrial named Sebastian, will sacrifice everything to protect his protégé’s family. As the moment approaches for a climactic meeting outside of the Air Force base between the Foundation and this dangerous threat, the stakes are nothing less than humanity’s continued existence, and the result of which will determine whether there is a future for any of us.
