In the previous instalment of this story (‘Heaven is a Place on Planet X), aliens had arrived and were promising (nay, requiring) on humanity being uploaded to Planet X, and for one in 100 humans to help them in that role.
When the appointed time for upload comes, and goes, let us just say, the shit hits the fan. We follow a young woman from a deeply religious family, whose mother was one of the 100, but who rejected that role, and whose father decides it’s all a big government sham, and starts to arm against them.
The aliens, pretty much unseen, allow us to see inside the heads of the characters, and for the most part it’s not a pretty sight.
