In the first volume of a new scifi series, we meet Tucker Feye who is living a pretty normal life in a small town in Minnesota.  His father is the local minister and his mother is the organist at the church.  Everything changes when Tucker's father disappears from the roof of the house when he is fixing it.  Tucker thought he saw a floating disk near where his father disappeared but how could that be?  When his father returns, he is a changed man.  He doesn't believe in God anymore and forbids the family from mentioning Him.  He is also accompanied by a young girl who is wearing strange blue boots.  She doesn't seem to speak English and there is no explanation as to where she came from.  And now Tucker's mother has lost her mind and there is no help for her.  Things get even stranger when Tucker's parents disappear.  Tucker keeps seeing the strange floating disks but who would believe him if he said he thought his parents went throught one of them?  Is that even possible?
