The end of the world? A new age for mankind? Nothing? The last time it happened Cro-Magnon man suddenly began creating great art in the caves of southern France, which to this day remains one of the most inexplicable changes in human history.Now Whitley Strieber explores 2012 in a towering work of fiction that will astound readers with its truly new insights and a roller-coaster ride of a story, as a mysterious alien presence unexpectedly bursts out of sacred sites all over the world to rip human souls from their bodies, plunging the world into chaos of a kind it has never before known.Courage meets cowardice, loyalty meets betrayal as an entire world struggles to survive this incredible war against souls.
