The crash of a US military research satellite
in the remote wilds of Mongolia triggers an explosive search for the valuable
cargo it holds: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark
energy, the energy associated with the birth of our universe. But the last
blurry image from the falling satellite captures a chilling sight: a
frightening look into the future, a view of a smoldering eastern seaboard of
the United States in utter ruin.
At the Vatican, a mysterious package arrives
for the head of Pontifical ancient studies, sent by a colleague who vanished a

Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA testing reveals both are from
Genghis Khan—the long-dead Mongol king whose undiscovered tomb is rumored to
hold the vast treasures and knowledge of a lost ancient empire.

Roman Empire, to a mystery bound in the roots of Christianity’s origins, and to
a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity. Download and start listening now!
