Astronomers don't know what the strange object is--only that it orbits past Earth every two millennia. Meanwhile, archaeologist Leo Cross has discovered peculiar layers of black residue at dig sites around the globe.
Stranger still, these thin bands occur like clockwork every years, coinciding with some of the world's darkest moments in history. We have six months to prepare for the next arrival. This time we know something is coming.

Fun little old-time sci-fi book. I liked the science--a little archaeology, a little archaeoastronomy. The characters were well drawn and likeable with nice personality quirks. I thought the "aliens" were very well-conceived and really alien, as opposed to funny-looking humans. The opposing mindsets of "us" and "them" are well developed and intriguing. My only quibble--I Fun little old-time sci-fi book. My only quibble--I thought Earth's defensive forces were a little slow to "get" the alien technology. No one could figure out what would happen? No one? Jul 10, Tristan Gregory rated it liked it.
A fun short read with a great idea but less than spectacular execution. The sequels are worth it if you feel you want the whole story, though there is nothing new discovered after about midway through the second one. From there it's all just trying up the various story threads. Aug 28, Lara rated it liked it.
This one was super-cheezy! An archaeologist notices a pattern of every years, a layer of black dust covers large swashes of the planet. What could it be?!
Aliens, of course! And they are on schedule for another pass at the planet.

Liked it very much. Not much character development but it is based on a neat idea. Reminded me of Inherit the Stars. Dec 08, Jacquie Vonhunnius rated it liked it. Perfectly good junk sf. Sort of the science fiction equivalent to Harlequin Romance.
