Publisher's summary

For centuries Earth has been visited by warlike creatures that stalk mankind's finest warriors. Their goals unknown, these deadly hunters kill their prey and depart as invisibly as they arrived, leaving no trace other than a trail of bodies.

When a young boy accidentally triggers the universe's most lethal hunters' return to earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.


  • Christopher Golden was originally contracted to write the novelization single-handedly. Golden had actually finished and turned in a completed novelization based on an early draft of the screenplay, when the production company sent him a second heavily-modified script. Due to the number of changes that would have to be implemented and Golden's involvement in another project at the time, Golden and Morris' mutual agent requested more funding from the publisher to get Morris to rewrite the novelization accordingly.[2]
