December 21, 2012, may be one of the most watched dates in history. Every 26,000 years, Earth lines up with the exact center of our galaxy. At 11:11 on December 21, 2012, this event happens again, and the ancient Maya calculated that it would mark the end of not only this age but also human consciousness as we know it. But what will actually happen? The end of the world? A new age for mankind? Nothing? The last time this happened, Cro-Magnon man suddenly began creating great art in the caves of southern France, which to this day remains one of the most inexplicable changes in human history. Now Whitley Strieber explores 2012 in a towering work of fiction that will astound readers with its truly new insights and a riveting roller-coaster ride of a story. A mysterious alien presence unexpectedly bursts out of sacred sites all over the world and begins to rip human souls from their bodies, plunging the world into chaos it has never before known. Courage meets cowardice; loyalty meets betrayal as an entire world struggles to survive this incredible end-all war. Heroes emerge, villains reveal themselves, and in the end something completely new and unexpected happens that at once lifts the fictional characters into a new life and sounds a haunting real-world warning for the future.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Blends equal parts science-fiction thriller, supernatural horror, and provocative spiritual speculation…wildly entertaining. Fans of apocalyptic page-turners like King’s The Stand and Niven and Pournelle’s Lucifer’s Hammer will enjoy this ambitious—and audacious—tale.” Publishers Weekly
“Joe Barrett narrates, complete with over-the-top growls and soap-opera emotions. Every character prospers with his expert portrayals, and none of the protagonists sound anything alike: An army general delivers short, punchy dialogue as he defends the planet while the writer reacts to massacres in breathless shock. This is a perfect match between book and reader.” AudioFile
“The physical existence of the soul has been discovered. The implications of that discovery drive the action of Strieber’s hyperactive cosmological thriller…It’s immensely entertaining, and it’s optioned for a big, splashy, FX-laden movie. Oh boy!” Booklist
