The Domain Trilogy (Volume 2)

Steve Alten

Forge Books



Once again, in this follow-up to Domain, Steve Alten has ingeniously woven the mysteries of the past into a gripping and unforgettable vision of the future.

Mayan legend tells of the Hero Twins, destined to confront the Lords of the Underworld and resue their long-lost father from the realm of darkness. Merely a two-thousand-year-old myth--or a prophecy of an apocalyptic battle for the soul of mankind?

On December 21, 2012, a date long foretold by the Mayan calendar, Michael Gabriel disappeared from the face of the Earth, after saving the entire planet from thermonuclear destruction. Less than a year later, his bereaved wife gave birth to twin sons, both possessed of extraordinary mental and physical gifts.

Are these at last the Hero Twins?

And yet, as crucial as the twins are, they are not unique. A third child was born on the same fateful day, blessed--or cursed--with the same superhuman talent and potential. Exposed to the uglier side of existence, Lilith will travel down a darker path that leads to eon-distant Xibalba--the Mayan version of hell. An epic battle of good versus evil will begin . . . and the final fate of the human race will be revealed.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
