But it was the Chimera: voracious extraterrestrial invaders. And in December , they burst across the Russian border and poured into Europe. The luckiest humans died.

But as the Chimera were repelled, they were evolving.

And when regular troops can't stem the Chimeran onslaught, Hale and his special-operations team meet the menace head-on. But while they battle the relentless Chimera, deadly power games rage in the White House. And when Hale discovers a far-reaching conspiracy, one with deadly consequences for the human race, his allegiance to country and mankind is stretched to the breaking point.
The parasitic alien race known as the Chimera , having conquered most of Europe and Asia, have already begun to invade North America and are threatening to encroach into the United States. Much of northern America has already fallen to the Chimera for which the US armed forces were forced to pull back from in order to defend lands untouched by the Chimera near the still-in construction Liberty Defense Perimeter. Under the leadership of Noah Grace , who has become increasingly totalitarian and megalomaniacal, the current administration is instituting increasingly tighter control of the United States which has become very unpopular to the American public.
As a result several resistance groups, the most prominent being Freedom First , violently opposed both the Chimera and the Grace administration. The story follows his exploits months after his extraction in Britain and subsequent recruitment into the Sentinel Program with the rank of Second Lieutenant. Cassandra "Cassie" Aklin , an Army-employed psychologist supporting SRPA and the protagonist in Resistance 2 's alternate reality game Project Abraham , is assigned to a team of psychologists treating the Sentinels and is revealed to be Hale's love interest which had been hinted at during the Project Abraham website videos.

Susan Farley , who was mentioned in Project Abraham, is Nathan Hale's foster sister and only surviving relative. The novel primarily focuses on the decisions of President Noah Grace, who realizing the inevitable fact that his nation will fall to the Chimera, announces to his Cabinet his plan to implement a compromise known as Project Omega.
This compromise calls for a negotiation between the United States and the Chimera - through the former the human turn Chimera, Jordan Shepherd, now known as Daedalus. Grace reasons that his decision is a necessary act to spare the United States from the horrors of the Chimeran War at the expense of the world as the plan calls for the withdraw of all American forces from the conflict.
Furthermore, Grace, privately, intends the negotiations to save himself, and only himself.
This decision is met with disgust and outrage from Grace's Secretary of War Henry Walker , who recognizes this as treason and secretly records Grace's plans. After Project Omega is accepted by Grace's Cabinet, Walker flees with his wife to join the resistance group Freedom First in Chimera-occupied Chicago in order to expose Project Omega; however, while en-route to the city the Walkers are captured by the Chimera and taken to a mining pit in Wisconsin, alongside other human prisoners, that is being used as a conversion center.
Grace becomes aware of Henry Walker's absence and orders a manhunt to find Walker, dead or alive. Meanwhile, Nathan Hale returns to his adopted home in South Dakota, now in Gray Territory, to learn the fate of his foster family.
