Mandy wakes up on her porch wearing only an oversize T-shirt. Luke falls through a black abyss. Four hours later, he ends up fully clothed on his own bed. Dark shapes terrorize both Luke and Mandy's dreams, and lifeless eyes pierce into their souls. Other townspeople have been affected, like Quentin, leader of the local skinheads, who looks better but acts scarier. Luke believes aliens are causing the blackouts, but Mandy thinks he's crazy. It must have something to do with the mysterious power surges that the town experiences every evening about the same time. When Mandy tries to find a scientific connection she can't. One evening, as they are investigating the power surges, they discover the terrible truth--each time they black out they are actually being abducted! An easy read for X-Files and science fiction fans.
