Daniel God floods the world killing everyone but Odd, his family, and the boat-full of strange creatures he has on board.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[Although it ends with the death with Stormy, it does not end there for Odd. It clearly leaves him open to more adventures in his upcoming books. Did you see the movie? It's available on Amazon and I just saw it a week ago. It's very true to the book. Highly recommend. (hide spoiler)]
