"In 1984 a doomsday vault was constructed on a remote island in the Arctic Ocean to preserve Earth's genetic history in the event of a global catastrophe.
Now, decades later, a second vault has been uncovered. This one resting where no one ever expected. And the problem is... it's not ours. Even more curious is the seeds inside the vault. Millions of seeds, each with a genetic embryo untouched and perfectly preserved. Waiting. No one knows who built it. Or when. Now a small group of marine biologists and navy investigators have been assigned to find out. Before anyone else does. But Alison Shaw and John Clay are not prepared for what they are about to uncover. Beginning with the truth behind our own evolution."
