The ceremonial mask of Kulkaan, high priest of the ancient civilization of Atlantis, was endowed with incredible powers. In the cataclysm that resulted in the destruction of Atlantis, the maskwas shattered and its fragments scattered to the ends of the earth. Over many generations, the mask of Kulkaan has been reassembled by the shadowy Crystalline Order, who intend to unleash its terrible powers on mankind. In a desperate race against time, Josh and Erica must destroy the mask before catastrophic consequences befall the world.

Born and raised in Britain, Canadian writer Simon Rose lives in Calgary, Alberta. The Doomsday Mask is his sixth novel for Tradewind.
