We had our chance. Our days are now numbered.
Best friends Jag, Tegan, Aari, Mariah and Kody are cast into an adventure of epic proportions when their small plane crashes in the remote forests of northern Canada. They are rescued by descendants of an ancient civilization who have lived secretly in a hidden valley for over two millennia.
Grateful for the hospitality and healing, the teenagers are eager to return home — but the inhabitants share with them a terrifying divination: a darkness is descending on mankind’s horizon, and the friends have been chosen to battle the gathering force bent on remaking the world in its image.
With the fate of humanity suddenly forced onto their shoulders, the group struggles with the weight of their new reality… and it becomes painfully clear that not everyone in the peaceful village means them well. Worse still, something mysterious outside the valley has begun reaping the lives of the villagers.
Hitting the ground running with odds stacked against them, can the friends survive their first trials as the Chosen Ones? And with an enemy still unknown prowling the fringes of civilization, ready to tear it down, what sacrifices lurk in the path toward their destiny?
