Not long ago, Scott Bryant would have described himself as an ordinary guy. But one act of heroism has changed his life forever--or at least until the apocalypse occurs. Because the end of the world is on its way.
Suddenly and inexplicably possessed of superhuman strength, Scott finds himself allied with the enigmatic and alluring Melanie Regan in a quest to find the mysterious Oracle in hopes of averting the absolute destruction that threatens.
Melanie herself has been falling into trances, sketching terrifying visions of future events--and she wants answers. She knows better than Scott where to look for help, but even she cannot fathom the powers that have thrust them together in an epic battle of good against evil.
The earth itself will soon turn against its inhabitants, and now mortal and immortal must join forces if any are to survive.
Bestseller Graham's new paranormal series, linked to her Alliance books (most recently 2007's Blood Red), gets off to an uneven start. What seems like a chance encounter in a Los Angeles alley is a life-changing moment for Scott Bryant when an old man reveals he is one of 12 incarnated astrological signs who will be called upon as our saviors on doomsday. Further information emerges slowly, and Scott's floundering as he tries to figure out what's going on may frustrate both new and returning readers. Scott and romantic interest Melanie Ryan primarily engage with each other and their foes and allies, leaving the world they're committed to saving as more of an abstract concept, but Graham's compelling nightmare and battle scenes and descriptive romantic encounters are mostly enough to keep the pages turning.
