The Third Wheel
Dexter has a complex about the fact that all his friends are getting married and moving in with their partners – but when aliens invade, it puts a lot of things into perspective.
Dexter feels like he’s being taunted by the universe. Everywhere he turns he’s accosted by wedding invitations and tables for two. All of his friends are settling down, while Dexter spends his evenings marking schoolbooks with his cat for company.
After another wedding ends in disaster, Dexter gets the shocking reminder that he’s not the centre of the universe. An alien spaceship has landed on the continent and when first contact is made, it’s anything but friendly...
Humanity’s numbers dwindle immediately, and the survivors are left to do exactly that – survive. Dexter gathers his friends and they all set off on a mission across the country, each with the goal of preserving their own lives in this new world.
