It feels like someone’s watching him. He can hear breathing too.

And just one word.


It’s a whisper and a scream all at once.

It’s been all grey days since losing his brother, but ten-year-old Mylo Story has something else to think about now. The strange metal debris with weird purple symbols and the charred earth where it hit out on Foster’s ranch during the loudest monsoon storm ever.

And then there’s the voice that no one else seems to hear. There it is again.


But who? And why him after he couldn’t save the one person who mattered more than anything?

Something crashed in the desert north of Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. The military wants everyone to believe it’s just a fallen weather balloon. But Mylo Story and his best friend Dibs know the truth. They know it because they were there and saw it with their own eyes.

And the truth is…it’s not from this world.

The Army Air Force threatens the town into silent fear as they create a worldwide cover up. But someone is still calling him and Mylo Story knows he can’t just walk away. He soon finds himself in another fight to save a life. He isn’t going to let another one slip through his fingers, not again. This time he would keep his promise, no matter what.

And just maybe one of the lives he saves is his own.
