This sophisticated sci-fi thriller is set in the year 2001. A team of young science students makes an eerie discovery. Miles below the surface of the South Pole, the Ancient Ones, a race of crystalline beings, have awakened after a million years, horrified to find "their" world infected by a plague of humans. To eliminate humanity, the Ancient Ones create an army of cybernetic monsters who lay waste to South America, China, and Russia before descending upon Japan to do battle with Godzilla. The young scientists in Antarctica and Godzilla, King of the Monsters, are humanity's last line of defense against the giant monster army of the Ancient Ones. Nonstop action and thrilling battles will keep young adult readers glued to the page!

"Godzilla At World's End" is the third and, arguably, the weakest in the series mostly thanks to a meandering plot too many characters. The two biggest problems in the book are:
1. The book takes a more juvenile route with the human characters and seems dangerously close to plunging to Scott Ciencen's level. The plot is over-complicated and the characters don't have the maturity to make it seem believable.
2. There are a ton of monsters, and, unfortunately, they don't get much attention nor do much to warrant it. By the end, Godzilla gets his share of time and Biollante is good as the big bad at the end, but monsters like Battara and the Smog Monster hardly do anything.
While I can't say this book is worth looking into for fans of high literature, kaiju fans should be surprised by Cerasini's dedication to bringing the monsters to life. Even in this less than perfect entry, his passions shows through. Mild recommendation.
This book was a real letdown, especially compared with the earlier books in the series. Hopefully, the next one will be a little more focused and will get things back on track.
