I love the way the story flits around the planet yet, as an astronomer, Ninian makes it easy for mere mortals to follow the plot despite the complexities of the story playing out across multiple time zones.
The book is both an entertaining romp and an educational tool ... a hard act to pull off without "information dumping" for any author but Ninian manages it masterfully ...
Brilliant read, sizzling suspense, dazzling story. I highly recommend you read this.
Richard Judd (President Hampshire Astronomical Group - Clanfield Observatory)
The combination of end-of-time fanatics latching onto a cosmological event, politicians over-reacting, media organisations competing for primacy (never mind the facts), law enforcement being stretched and, for once, the not-so-fanatical religious establishment behaving reasonably sensibly, inexorably leads us through a countdown to the end of the year (or will it be the end of days?) The action happens in parallel all over the world, separate strands yet ultimately interconnected; each inevitable step towards the deadline directed by global media yet with personal triumphs and tragedies that make the story come alive before your eyes. These are characters you will care about, the outcome is one you must care about. Once you start reading this story you will be swept along through a tumultuous week in these characters' lives, in the whole world's population's lives.Read more ›

A truly excellent work.
The format that Ninian has chosen, with events taking place in different timezones, really adds to the pace and sense of urgency of the plot. Read more
