The biological history of species change seems to indicate that evolution occurs, not in gradual change over eons, but in sudden, violent change in a short period of time. What exactly causes these changes is not known, but they seem to appear at times of great environmental stress.
In the near future, after a great pandemic wipes out much of the earth's human population, a further cataclysm occurs: an ice age begins.
Under the stress of this vast environmental change, new species of animals and plants begin to appear, almost overnight. Among these new species is a new type of human, small of stature, but possessing uncanny intelligence and mental abilities far beyond those of ordinary people.
Are these new creatures our bright future, or our bitterest enemies?
