The world faces a crisis. After a rash of still-births, no new children are conceived. No natural methods, nor any technological wizardry can change this.

They have been chosen as the actors in the grand play that will either bring the world crashing down or remake it for a new golden age. Change the world. Preserve it. Destroy it. Is this the beginning of the end? Or is it the end of the beginning?
