A powerful story of the demise of the human race. Drawing on the traditional account in Revelations, a masterful imagination is evident in the vast scale of the action as Omegarus, the Last Adam, and Syderia, the Last Eve, are led toward the moment when "the light of the sun and the stars is extinguished."
