Ark of the Apocalypse
A new post-apocalyptic/science fiction series, by author Tobin Marks
Planet Earth is dying. The global temperature has risen, the polar ice caps have melted, and forest fires are raging out of control across the world. Eleven billion people are dying of thirst, and are on the brink of extinction, as governments rage war over scarce natural resources. The only hope for the survival of the human race is to leave Earth and colonize another planet. The nation states come together and build the Magellan II, the first star ship capable of interstellar travel. The ship transports ten thousand people of childbearing age to the far distant Draco constellation. Reminiscent of the Noah’s Ark, the ship carries the genetic strains of all Earths species, to recreate life on the new planet. It is hoped that the lush, watery planet, as seen in the visions of a prominent geneticist, will have the ability to sustain life and continue humanity. But survival for the colonists isn’t guaranteed, as the star ship crash lands, and the colonists must learn to live alongside the giant, dinosaur-sized reptiles that inhabit the planet. Will the colonists survive in this new alien world? And can this world survive with new human inhabitants?
