A final shadow swallows the Sun and the Earth, and in mere minutes, humanity is erased from the cosmos—all save one.
When Ryan McBain regains consciousness adrift in orbit, his life is gone. But a higher purpose is in play for Ryan, and the path forward is twisted by mysterious correlations to his troubled past. The constant threat of death fuels a madness that drives him to the doorstep of ancient lifeforms. Using images from his past to communicate, a race of stellar beings makes first contact with the last human in existence. Through a shared cognitive overlap, an unlikely alliance is formed.
All the while, an evil presence drives a horde of dark minions across the galaxy and threatens the lives of billions.
Ryan knows that to kill a monster, you must first understand it. However, living long enough to know this enemy is far easier said than done.
