Nothing seemed to happen on December 21st, 2012, when the Mayan calendar heralded the end of the world. At least until the portals showed up on the evening news.

With her new friends, Ellie searches for information on the group, trying to subvert their plans before they came for her. She wasn't expecting where the trail would lead her, or the disaster waiting to happen.
