Believing they have found proof of God, religious radicals, with surprising support from the US population, have taken over the US government, ending democracy and rewriting the Constitution. These radicals, called Armageddonists, believe that it is their calling to fulfill biblical prophecy and usher in the Battle of Armageddon. Anyone who protests is arrested and forced to convert. Those who fail to convert are put to death.
Meanwhile, while protesting the closing of the last university, two college students, Seth White and Jace Davis, are arrested and falsely accused of murder. Knowing they will be executed, they make a daring escape. But they soon find that not only are they being hunted, but they also have acquired supernatural abilities that they can’t explain—abilities that may help them prevent Armageddon.
