Lastborn: A Phantasmagorical Tale

Available

Description

A huge comet enters Earth's atmosphere at a blistering 67,000 miles an hour. It is a cosmic bomb of epic proportions, destined to snuff out 97 percent of all earthlings, both plant and animal.

As a fact-driven narrative of history's legendary Fifth Extinction, Lastborn delivers this year's publishing hat trick: a real life apocalypse, mind-boggling special effects, and an improbable hero--a dinosaur.

Lastborn is an unusual youngster. He's inherited a set of traits known as the Gift, which includes an oversized brain, extra-sharp senses, and odd-colored eyes and skin. To the others, he's a freak. He might have spent all his days as an outcast, but for the special delivery from outer space.

When the ground explodes beneath them and the sky catches fire overhead, the dinosaurs' known world is dramatically altered. In this time of desperation, the Gift could mean the difference between survival and extinction. Lastborn has the ability to guide his tribe through the cataclysm, but only if they let him.
