They quickly uncover the fact that the roots of that massaore lie elsewhere, in another era on another continent. While Ben follows the trail of the shadowy force responsible, Danielle finds herself swept into a maelstrom where the past and the present collide, joined by an ancient text of prophecies that predicts a cataclysmic event about to strike the United States. The only way to prevent it is to decipher a cryptic message shrouded in secrecy and guarded by a secret army.
