The last tyrannosaur has passed away. So has her mate, her young, and all of the beasts they fed upon. Extinction will claim them all. Almost all of the dinosaurs will soon be wiped out by a truly monstrous virus. The remains of one very special animal are entombed by an ancient earthquake, preserving the virus in a region that will eventually become an Arctic wasteland.
Fast forward sixty-five million years, to the year 2025, when a Chinese research team recovers those ancient bones. They have no idea what lurks inside the find, and the organism escapes. People start dying... A proven planet killer begins spreading on the wind. Politicians are nonchalant about the growing crisis in Asia, until a local epidemic explodes into a global pandemic.
World leaders are convinced the disease is some sort of biological attack, and they waste time and resources trying to identify a culprit. When the public finally learns the truth, they are faced with a very grim reality. Some handle it fairly well. Most do not. The scientific and medical communities search desperately for some way to contain the disease, but they are unsuccessful.
The summer of 2025 has ended. Homo sapiens has survived the plague, but society and technology have been utterly destroyed. The new world has its own set of challenges, but in many ways it is an idyllic world. As the centuries pass humanity begins restoring society.
