This is a story about a force of Darkness destroying the earth. The effects are subtle at first, but rapidly become too overt to ignore. Only after hundreds of millions of deaths and the appearance of horrible monsters does humanity begin to learn to fight back. Or can they only learn to survive in this newly changed world?
This story is told in separate but interconnected stories involving different people, in different places and at different points in time during the greatest crises the world has ever known.
