Adrians brother, Kevin, wastes no time funding the Mars II rescue mission that will be commanded by Jake Palmer, Adrians son. Jake and Dr. Steven Skip Hendricks, a NASA physicist and guru of religious history, travel through a wormhole that Skip believes was the reason the Mars I crew disappeared. They eventually crash-land on the planet Terrest and are thrust into a dangerous conflict. The native Terrestrians are at war against a superrace of humans called the Gnols, led by Koroan Chast. The Terrestrians struggle is futile because the Gnols have superior intelligence, strength, and telekinetic and telepathic abilities. Its only when Koroans own daughter, Celeste, rebels from her fathers tyrannical rule and joins Adrian and Jake that the rebels stand a chance. In addition, Skip discovers a prophecy given by Jesus Christ in an ancient temple on Terrest detailing how the Gnols can possibly be defeated. But before the prophecy can come to pass, Adrian and Jake must first stop the Gnols from attacking Earth and enslaving the human race.
