It is a time of chaos and endings--the Universe itself is on the verge of a cosmic rebirth--but the greatest dangers, and challenges, will not be met by Earth's mightiest heroes. This time, the fate of the universe rests in the hands of some very unlikely figures: Jimmy Olsen, Mary Marvel, Donna (Wonder Girl I) Troy, Jason (Robin II) Todd and Ray (the Atom) Palmer.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The explosive novelization of the events that followed the cataclysm of Infinite Crisis.

Cosmic legend has it that when the primordial gods of antiquity perished in some bygone cataclysm, the universe gave birth to a new breed of gods who reigned from two eternally warring worlds, the heavenly New Genesis and the hellish Apokolips. Now, a vast conspiracy of evil is determined to eradicate the New Gods, stealing their souls to wield universal power that can destroy all of reality.

At the end of an age in which time, space, and reality may bow before such sinister forces, the fate of the Earth lies in the hands of five unlikely super heroes who have one destiny to fulfill: to save the world at all costs, regardless of the consequences.
