It has been months coming and it is finally here. Astrologers have predicted that the meteors aren't going to hit. But that fact doesn t help much for the fear filled panic that floods the streets worldwide in the weeks leading to the catastrophic boom. Forced out of his home by the chaos and rioting, Byron Russo finds himself on the run. All of the survival horror novels that he has read tell him to stock up and lay low. In the process of raiding supplies at a local grocery store, Byron bands together with an unlikely cast of characters. But surviving the panic is the least of their worries. After hunkering down at the Templeton Factory where Byron works, the worst has only begun. The meteor shower strikes the moon, shifting it off its natural axes. The moon is larger. The floods have started. Plant life is dying. And the oxygen levels are changing. No one can breathe. With the use of the factory supplies will Byron and his new friends survive the new world, or will they fall to a much darker element that lurks in their own backyard?
