When the world ends, only one law remains: Eat... or be eaten.
First the asteroid would come, slamming into the earth just north of the Montana border, followed by earthquakes, tsunamis, and unending night.
And after that... Hell.
Astronomer Marty Chittenden is the first to recognize the approaching doom—a discovery that makes him a marked man.
Green Beret Jack Forrest knows the catastrophe is inevitable, and begins stockpiling an abandoned missile silo with supplies while gathering together a small community of men, women, and children he prays can survive the apocalypse.
Then disaster strikes. In an instant the world they know ends forever, transformed into a nightmare realm of eternal darkness. Soon the few remaining humans are transformed as well, becoming savage things—raping, pillaging, and devouring their own.
And the time is approaching when Forrest and his people will have to leave their underground "Noah's Ark" to face a shattered world and the unspeakable terrors that dwell there—in desperate pursuit of one slim hope of survival... called Hawaii.
The End Begins...
The earth shuddered deep within and all around them, groaning as if stricken a mortal wound. Almost everyone held their breath, waiting.
Then, as if on cue, the entire complex shook violently as the shock wave passed through the earth's crust. Forrest pressed hard against the wall, bracing his feet against the floor as the room jiggled back, forth, and up and down on its shock absorbers. The women and the children screamed in terror, all of them covering their heads, but nothing fell and no cracks appeared in the walls, the entire installation having been purposefully built to absorb this very kind of shock wave. Within a few seconds the earth stopped shaking, and everything grew silent.
"Is it over?" Joann asked, lifting her head.
"Switch on the cameras," Forrest said. "See if we're blind."
Ulrich turned on the monitor, switching to the outside feeds. The grasslands all around to house were burning.
"Is it raining fire?" West asked.
"Sure as hell is," Forrest said. "The asteriod blasted millions of tons of rock into the outer atmosphere."
West looked at Forrest. "And so it begins."
