Since the dawn of man a cosmic cycle of rebirth heralds the destruction of one era in preparation for the next. Centuries have passed since the last transition and those old enough to have survived can sense the end is nigh once more. After moving to New York City, twenty-year-old Dorian Benoit is the target of an attack by a horde of nightmarish intruders. He is about to give up hope when a clandestine gathering of supernatural beings come to his aid. Through them, he learns of the impending doom the world is fated to suffer and the sinister foes of humanity who have toiled in the shadows for ages, plotting their rise to power once the Earth is thrust into turmoil. The end of modern civilization draws near and mankind is none the wiser. What difference can one make in a world destined to destroy itself?
