DARK RISING
 
A CATACLYSMIC EVENT
When a massive amount of gamma radiation is detected somewhere beneath the desert of Iran, the world is on edge. Is it a nuclear weapon--or worse? Alex Hunter and his highly trained incursion team is on a mission to find out. When they arrive at the ruins of Persepolis, they find an underground facility but no lab, no weapons, no scientists--not even radiation. A black hole has taken everything...
 
 AN ANCIENT PROPHECY
Meanwhile, Iran is preparing for the return of the prophet. Israel is threatening nuclear war. And the details about Alex's special U.S. military venture--code name: Arcadian--have been stolen. Then another gamma spike is detected...and someone, or something, is draining the fluids from the bodies of Iranian soldiers in the desert.
 
 A RACE AGAINST DARKNESS
Now it's up to Alex to follow the traces of radiation all the way to the ancient caves of Arak, where he'll come face to face with a creature from his darkest nightmares. Is it game-over for Alex and his team? Or are greater forces at work as the world reaches its natural end--and mankind casts its final judgment?
