Though the fighting has stopped and Hitler is vanquished,
a dangerous new war between America and the Soviet Union
has begun. Invaluable in defeating the Nazis, accidental
crypto-zoologist R. J. MacCready and Yanni Thorne, an
indigenous Brazilian and expert in animal behavior, are
working for the Pentagon once again. Sent to a mysterious
Greek island in a remote corner of the Mediterranean,
they are investigating rumors about a volcanic spring
with â€śmiraculousâ€ť healing properties that the locals say
is guarded by sea monsters from ancient legends.
The islanders believe that, like Fatima, the spring is a
gift from God. To the Greek Orthodox Church, it is a sign
of a deadly evil foretold in apocalyptic texts. Alongside
French and Chinese researchersâ€”men who share their
strange, blood-stained pastâ€”Mac and Yanni discover that
the volcanic springâ€™s undersea plumes release an exotic
microbe that can transform life with astonishing speed.
To find the source of the Volcanic spring, Mac and Yanni
must find a way to neutralize â€śthe Dragons of
Revelationâ€ťâ€”a fearsome aquatic species also known as
â€śKraken,â€ť which are preventing the scientists from
exploring deep beneath the seaâ€™s surface. Mutating at an
astonishing pace, the Kraken have evolved into a
chillingly high alien intelligence. As the race to
possess the â€śmiracleâ€ť microbe heats up, tensions between
geopolitics, religion, and ordinary scientists confronted
with the unknown escalate into chaos. Mac and Yanni know
all too well that one wrong choice can easily set in
motion a biological chain reaction that will reach across
the decades to enhanceâ€”or destroyâ€”everything that lives.
