The Mayan calendar ends... the war for souls begins.

December 21, 2012: When Earth aligns with the exact center of the galaxy, the Mayan calendar ends. Homo sapiens will... die.

Only one person can hold back that everlasting night. Author Wylie Dale is driven by forces beyond his control to chronicle this coming apocalypse. In his supposedly ficitional saga, the aliens are already here—and they are tearing our souls from our bodies. This army of miserable, mindless wanderers, along with the legions of their loved ones who follow them in desperation, will vanish into a vortex that knows no end.

Unfortunately, Dale's story is not fiction. They are coming.

Dale holds the fate of the world in his hands. But will the world heed his warning? The alien gateway beckons.


"Immensely entertaining." —Booklist

"Wildly entertaining. Fans of apocalyptic page-turners like King's The Stand and Niven and Pournelle's Lucifer's Hammer will enjoy this ambitious—and audacious—tale." —Publishers Weekly

"A chilling thriller packed with action and sci-fi intrigue... Strieber is at his best, combining tons of action with mystical references from ancient aliens to modernday government conspiracies. A roller-coaster ride as a work of fiction, a page-turner that will keep you up into the wee hours of the morning." —

"Phenomenal. The story rockets forward, dragging you deeper with page-turning ferocity. Strieber has crafted an intense book, one that flies by with startling and vivid imagery." —
