First, we feared them. Then we fought them. Now they might be our only hope.

Sixteen-year-old Lyric Walker’s life is forever changed when she witnesses the arrival of 30,000 Alpha, a five-nation race of ocean-dwelling warriors, on her beach in Coney Island. The world’s initial wonder and awe over the Alpha quickly turns ugly, paranoid, and violent, and Lyric’s small town transforms into a military zone with humans on one side and Alpha on the other. When Lyric is recruited to help the crown prince, a boy named Fathom, assimilate, she begins to fall for him. But their love is a dangerous one, and there are forces on both sides working to keep them apart.

But what if the Alpha are not actually the enemy? What if they are in fact humanity’s best chance for survival? Because the real enemy is coming, and it’s more terrifying than anything the world has ever seen.

Action, suspense, and romance whirlpool dangerously in this cinematic saga.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sharp political commentary and strong parallels to the treatment of minorities in the U.S. ground the world in reality, while the well-rounded and ethnically diverse supporting cast will cause readers to root for them…the breathtaking action and cliff-hanger conclusion will leave teens desperate for more.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Buckley packs this propulsive novel with one walloping scene after another, and there’s enough action, romance, and high-stakes drama to keep a wide array of readers interested.”


  • “Readers will find themselves immersed in this semi-edgy, race-against-the-clock world that’s waiting to implode.”
