What if there really was a Garden of Eden - a place with a history before the first people we know of, and a God before the one we now recognize? A civilization cursed and banished underground for breaking their own commandment - to live in balance with the Earth. When an evil coal operator discovers that the "sacred" carbon can burn forever, he will sacrifice the land and the people to extract the full deposit. In his final attempt to exploit the deposit he awakens and releases a hell the surface world cannot imagine. And the only thing that stands in the way of the end of the world as we know it is a disgraced, ex-pro baseball pitcher and a community of courageous coal miners. The prequel to Salt, offered this month!
