There are terrible forces outside of our reality--and they want to come in. The only power holding them is science, mustered by a remarkable (and seemingly immortal) individual named Kenntnis.
Now he's gone and an Albuquerque cop has the weight of the world on his shoulders. If Richard Oort can't rise to this challenge, it really will be the end of the world.From official release/information:
From back of book: I'm Richard Oort. I'm a cop. Two months ago I had learned there were unseen worlds on the borders of our reality. Dimensions filled with horrific, nightmare creatures. Things that viewed humans as prey. Things that drove us to acts of unspeakable violence.
I had to fight them. To defend the people I loved, and to find out who I was. And am.
I'm still a cop. But now I'm also CEO of Lumina Enterprises, a mysterious, globe-girdling operation even I don't know the full extent of. Replacing the previous guy, who appears ot have also been Prometheus, really and truly. Now Prometheus is bound, and the job of taking the fight ot he next level is mine.
Because the horrors aren't over. And they'll use any human weakness they can get hold of. This is a fight for the world. For keeps.
