Scientists have made a startling discovery: the last fragment of a primordial supercontinent on which life has evolved separately from all other life on Earth. The time is now. The place is the Trident, a long-range research vessel hired by the reality TV show SeaLife. Aboard is a cast of ambitious young scientists, and a director dying for drama. Henders Island might be just what the show needs to boost the ratings, until the first scientist sets foot ashore—and the ultimate test of survival begins.
