When one leader gives Cone a powerful device that predicts the future, he doesn't want to believe the prophecy: that the world will soon end, and he is to blame. Soon after, his wife and children are taken, his allies are killed, and his friends are imprisoned. With the world descending into a cataclysmic global war, every nation wants Cone on their side. However, his only priorities are finding his family, freeing his friends, and saving his people. To do this, Cone must become a lethal killer and lead a ragtag group of warriors, including a thirteen-year-old girl with special powers, a mathematical genius, a religious zealot, and a former revolutionary turned drug addict. Together, they might be the world's only hope."@en ;
