When farm animals and plants start becoming monsters, a young FBI agent investigates the largest GMO corporation in the world. She is motivated by her mother, a renowned nanotechnology scientist, who has been warning about the dangers of this company’s new genetic product to world’s agriculture and biosphere. Political and corporate interests stand on her way, but she sticks on her quest stumbling into an Eco-terrorist plot. These Eco-terrorists, led by a renegade scientist, supposedly want to save the environment from the human impact. They plan to take advantage of the company’s world monopoly and its new product to create an animal apocalypse, the ANYMALIPSE, to destroy global agriculture taking back present global civilization to pre-industrial levels. The Eco-terrorists manage to create chaos all over Pennsylvania transforming farm animals and plants into giant aggressive monsters, but they need the FBI agent’s mother’s nanobots (nanotechnology robots) to expand their plans worldwide, so they kidnap both, she and her mother. The FBI agent should face the eco-terrorists to save her mother and stop the ANIMALYPSE.

CHAPTER 1. BLUE SKY, BLUE SKY!

Downtown Philadelphia is a battleground at dawn.

The city is darkened by dense clouds of smoke and dust, rippled by fires, explosions, and gunfire.

The deafening resonance of rumbling, demolitions, detonations, shooting, sirens, shouting and roaring shakes the atmosphere.

Grass, bushes, and trees grow hasty and gigantic, pushing each other like a turbulent sea. They move plowing the earth and concrete as a slow-motion tsunami sprouting crowds of massive trunks, branches and roots as giant angry snakes.

Colossal vines wind up around the tall buildings, squeezing, piercing and tearing them down amid thick clouds of dust and a terrifying thundering.

Massive roots break up the streets and sidewalks opening wide and deep gaps.

Electrical wires rustle out of the cracks sizzling and sparkling, setting fire everywhere.

Exposed underground pipes release powerful jets of water and gas on fire as immense blowtorches.

Amongst the ruins and the clouds of smoke and dust, military detachments shoot at massive herds of giant bulls, pigs, and goats, much bigger than elephants, with enormous and powerful muscles and jars.

The pack of thousands of gigantic animals flows through the streets running furiously scared amongst the crumbling buildings and ruins, dodging the growing trunks, branches, and roots. Some of the colossal animals fall into the profound cracks on the streets. Some get tangled with the electrical cables being electrocuted. Others beats, run mad like living torches as they are set on fire by the ignited broken gas lines.

The giant animals crush everything in their path, cars, poles, walls, garbage containers and the barricades set by the military in an unsuccessfully attempt to contain them.

Soldiers and cops shoot at the wild flocks with all their firepower possible in a desperate effort to halt them. Sapper units try to blow up the growing jungle in a failed attempt to stop it.

Behind the combatants’ lines, police officers and rescuers organize the evacuation of terrified civilians and the wounded.

Despite the heavy fire of the military, the flock of giant beasts mows down the defense lines, ramming and overturning buses, trucks, cars and tanks.

A military officer yells out for help on the radio. “Blue Sky, Blue Sky! We need reinforcements, now!” But he can’t continue talking.

The beasts’ furious stampede runs over everything, the barricades, the vehicles, the military personnel and the civilian.

The survivors that manage to escape are buried under the collapsing buildings.

Thick dust and smoke clouds devour everything, leaving only a deep darkness broken by explosions, gunfire, shouting, roaring and crashes.
