As the world ended, humans built thirteen pods to fill with hand-chosen survivors and dispersed them out to space and deep under the ocean. A thousand years after the Doom, the time has finally come for the last human survivors to return from their remote colonies and recolonize Earth. 

The Thirteenth Continuum, buried in the deepest ocean trench on earth, has survived the exile—but they’ve fallen into a dark age under the rule of the tyrannical Synod, which has wiped clean all traces of life Before Doom from the human records. When Myra Jackson learns that their colony has eight months of oxygen left, she begins searching for a legend she’s about which she’s heard whispering: a Beacon—an ancient and forbidden device from Before Doom that’s supposed to lead them back to the Surface. Her discovery will lead her to a soldier from another Continuum. Linked together by the Beacons and able to communicate, Myra finds herself falling in love with this mysterious stranger and must ultimately make a choice that will impact the future of mankind.
