Finishing its meal the groogle began to make its way to a manhole cover. It strode past humans oblivious to its presence.  Tasting the air the groogle sniffed and edged closer. It was now apparent this light show had attracted even more attention.

The trees began to react to the shift in energy generating localized kinetic disturbances in the air that would seem to be random gusts to a human observer.

Flauth the groogle and Iriel a shadowman are caught up in an inter-dimensional invasion of Earth, when they try to help a young human during an attack. As events progress and the invaders gain a foothold, the unlikely companions are drawn together to confront the ancient source.
