      When a small island community rises up against what it believes is a conspiracy to corrupt the town with casino gambling, the residents find that the real threat comes from an ancient Evil within the Cubit. Soon no one is certain who is real and who is dead. In this first book of The 2012 Trilogy: The Professor brought the Cubit to Janine Bender's house in Kansas a year ago where it was released onto her farm, destroying everything. For months she thought she was insane until, finally, she found Paradise: Port Aransas, Texas, a town of outer beauty and inner secrets, an island in the Gulf where she was always destined to be. Billy Jo Presser, an MIT dropout and the town's "second-best" surfer, has become a part of Janine's destiny. But as a scientist how could he believe? He'd lost his faith a long time ago. Now, he is forced to face a world without academic principal, with no figures or facts or proof. Now, he must confront the ultimate truth, one that hurtles him and Janine on a mind-twisting journey predestined by an ancient countdown toward Armageddon. For 26,000 years, the Mayans have known the end was coming. Port Aransas is about to reveal these secrets.
