They can't stop the Apocalypse but they might just slow it down.
Seven ‘Goners’ must circumnavigate the globe and travel through human history in an attempt to save their island from the coming apocalypse.
That’ll be the easy part…
New Hebrides is the last habitable place on earth. A technological haven created by the visionary Alan Carver, the island rode out the end of humanity by setting itself adrift in time – though Carver died before he could reach it. After a century of isolation, however, New Hebrides is running out of resources, its population kept in the dark about their impending doom.
Seven rebellious ‘Goners’ are exiled to the mainland and discover why nobody can leave the island. They find themselves stranded 200 million years in the past, facing an environment too inhospitable to survive. Fleeing east in a stolen amphibious carrier, they pass through time barriers, arriving at successive eras of human history. Until they land in the middle of the ‘Great Chaos’ - the catastrophe that destroyed their world.
