Seventeen-year-old Peter has started to notice a ghostly orb hanging around in his bedroom, but the orb isn’t a spirit. It’s a Visioner. An advanced communication device from another planet.
When Clix, the alien ambassador in charge of the orb communicates with Peter, he discovers that they’ve been watching Peter and his girlfriend Julie for years.
And they are in danger.
A rogue alien race is scouring Earth, looking for suitable female gene donors to strengthen their weakening race, and when Peter unexpectedly comes across another Visioner, a blue orb, Clix warns that it belongs to the very aliens they are in danger of being abducted by. Then they learn that two more girls have been taken – Julie’s sister and her friend.
With the help of Clix and the Visioner, Peter and Julie set off on an adventure against time to find and free them before their genes are harvested. Can they save them, or even with the help of the Visioner, will they be too late?
