Fedorov and Karpov begin their campaign to discover and seal off temporal rifts being
used by unwanted guests from the distant past. From the deep subterranean passages of Siberian caves to the broad expanse of Lake Baikal, the “Old Ones” are coming through. They must be
stopped before their numbers increase to a point where that becomes impossible.
As the fighting escalates, Karpov resorts to some heavy-handed tactics, but they soon
find the Raptors have begun to use an alarming new weapon of their own. A roller coaster ride of action follows as the undeclared inter-species war rages across Siberia, and not even the great cities
are immune from attack.
Then, while making a recon jump to the future, Fedorov realizes they have discovered a
new shadow Meridian, and reason to doubt if the future they fought for in two world wars can even exist. They also make an amazing new discovery while crossing the great sand seas of the Taklamakan.
