Mike Donovan and Juliet Parrish are still in New York, trying to drum up the resistance as they know that Diana has targeted New York and plans for a full-scale invasion. She already has troops on the ground in disguise, and they have been feeding her intel for some time. The Resistance also knows that and they know that they are probably being played by the mayor who has refused their help so far but after capturing her as she was trying to spy on them, they discover that she is, in fact, a reptile and a member of the Fifth Column. The mayor tells them how she has been playing both sides and how she disapproves of Diana’s current plan. What that means for the Resistance is a Hail Mary as she has a way to keep the Visitors out of New York and while the plan seems like a dangerous one given the opposition they are likely to face, it is the only thing that might have a chance of success. As such, a battle with a lizard named Walter takes place and it is not an easy one, the creature is obsessed with Diana and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that her wishes are followed to the letter. Be that as it may, Donovan comes out on top with a bit of unintended help from some other Visitors and a little persistence and craftiness with all of the bad guys perishing in the process. The rest of the plan goes off without a hitch and the weather-controlling tech is attached to the Empire State building which will keep New York and the surrounding area a nice cool winter, fending off the spring season and thereby keeping the Red Dust in the atmosphere, preventing the Visitors from ever taking hold in this part of the United States. When it comes to Diana, she is still being poked by Lydia with the threat of he who rules over them all coming down on her for not following orders herself. The fact that she has just lost the Eastern seabord is not a good thing either and the book leaves off on a good note for the heroes and somewhat of a sour one for the lizards.
