on 1 reviews
In this epic natural disaster story, Mother Nature goes on the rampage but this time she intends to take it all the way. With the odds stacked against him, Mankind is about to face the greatest challenge ever... extinction. In the first of six books, the race for survival has only just begun. More
An unprecedented seismic event 249 km west of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands jostle the Indian, Australian, and Eurasian plate boundaries together, prompting thousands of earthquakes to ripple out across the globe. The abnormal upheaval triggers a massive underwater landslide that permanently transforms the geography in the Bay of Bengal.
But the Andaman Event is the catalyst for an epic disaster on an unimaginable scale. Poised to eradicate more than 8.2 million animal, marine, insect, and plant species, scientists predict it will surpass the Great Dying that occurred between the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras 252 million years earlier. During that period, 83% of all genera was lost, and it is the only known mass extinction of insects. The next one is in 2020.
Amid unparalleled changes to the climate and extraordinary seism's, ecological and geological transformations are in progress that will purge Mankind along with almost every form of life, and a desperate struggle for survival begins.
A series of perplexing failures in the worldwide weather satellite network operated by Infinity Meteorological Database Systems is the first warning of Mother Nature's quest to sanitize the planet. For the first four days it is mistaken as a probable computer virus until the chief technical officer, Brad Bentley, makes a startling discovery. The company’s CEO, Steve Jaeger, presents the evidence to President Lloyd Sinclair who, despite his skepticism, seeks the opinion of renowned astrophysicist, Dr. Jack Bailey, PhD, of Harvard.
The professor’s preliminary evaluation confirms a global disaster is already in an advanced stage of development, but because the details are vague, he has the academic brought to the White House. His elucidation confounds the president even more and throws him into a quandary. The fallout over his response if he believes the doctor’s absurd summarization, will have disastrous repercussions with US allies and his presidency in an election year. On the other hand, if he disregards the assessment and it turns out to be true, the consequences will be even more deadly.
There is no middle ground.
