This exciting book starts with a bang, as a California family lives through a powerful earthquake. The whole Earth is being plagued with a series of shattering earthquakes, tsunamis, and loss of life. Everyone believes it is the end of the world. A geologist, Mark, investigates the strange tectonic phenomena and discovers a mind-blowing secret under the holy Mt. Kailas in Tibet. Mark meets Kusoom, a lovely and serene leader of a cult. She tells him they are helping with the birth of a Great Being. Instead of apocalypse, the cracking up of the Earth is the opening of a Cosmic egg. Mark is skeptical until he finds that astronomy graduate students have discovered what they believe is a massive blue comet that is communicating with the emerging creature. As the Cosmic Swan is revealed, powerful forces try to destroy what they see as a monster. Mark and his Tibetan friends struggle to save the emerging creature with the help of the one, mistaken for a comet, who left the egg there millennia before.
