Unbeknown to the humans on Earth, they have been shielded from the truths of their galaxy and are being protected by a pact they do not even know exists.
As the humans continue living in their cocoon world this protection is under threat as a fiend with dark forces is busy plotting the Earth's destruction.
This fiend's name is Hades, ruler of the realms of Hades and an exiled angel.
Before The After is the beginning of a science fiction trilogy and explains not only that we are not alone in the universe but why no one has bothered visiting the Earth.
What would you do if you were told the Earth was due for destruction?
That is the question James Springer is forced to face and Before The After takes us on the journey of him trying to find this answer, but his quest ultimately leads him to many adversities along the way.
With the aid of two strangers, Hercules and Hermes, James learns his life will change forever as he is abducted from Earth to take part in a tournament of death held in the realms of Hades.
His abductees, Hercules and Hermes, unravel the true realities of the galaxy James lives in, revealing also that they provided him with a symbiote which not only heals wounds but more importantly unlocks access to the unreachable parts of the human brain.
But these new powers come at a price.
James finds out the Earth is due for destruction and he is needed in its defence – providing he can first survive a tournament of death held in the realms of Hades.
