The Drakos Effect
Joe Sharcoff, author
In the future, humanity is being evaluated by an alien interstellar community to see if humans warrant membership. The process is taking decades, and humanity is losing patience. In the interim, a mysterious prehistoric object is discovered beneath the Yucatan in Mexico, an object harboring a secret concerning humanity's origins. Accidentally awakened by nuclear explosions, the object seeks to destroy all life on Earth, and only an eminent astrobiologist has any chance of stopping it.
