The story of the novel shows a magnificent tale with interstellar intrigue in which a scientist from Earth gets caught in numerous terrifying conflict of the species. Dr. Mackenzie Connor is introduced as the senior co-administrator of the Norcoast Research Facility. He is referred to as Mac by her colleagues and friends. She seems to be a trained biologist and considers her work to be her life. The research facility was located in a place which was very well suited for her style of working.
The Norcoast Base was located in an ideal location beside the Tannu River, which speeds down the western side of the Rocky Mountains and meets the Pacific Coast. At one point, she and her colleague Dr. Mamani, were settling to monitor the current year’s salmon runs, when they were interrupted by the arrival of Brymn, who was the first member of the Ohryn alien race, who set its foot on Earth. In his race, Brymn used to work as an archaeologist and the major portion of his research work focussed on a region in space called as the Chasm. It was that part of the universe that which was considered dead and all the worlds on Chasm were deprived of any life forms. But there were some traces that showed that civilizations used to exist and flourish in the region once. Brymn comes in contact with Mac and takes her help because of her profession as a biologist. This discipline was forbidden in his race and he thought that she might be able to help him find the creator of Chasm, with the help of her expertise in biology. But Mac did not seem to have an interest in the studies of things that were from the outside world. Also, she politely tries to make Brynm understand that she was not willing to abandon the research work on which was working in the Norcoast Base. However, the right to make a decision was taken from away from her when the base was attacked by some devastating and mysterious entities and Emily gets abducted. Soon, Mac is forced to flee along with Brymn and the special agents protecting him. It is revealed later that the Earth might be under attack from the legendary alien race Ro, who were also responsible for the destruction of Chasm.
