With inventive zeal, Burrows takes us on a spacefaring adventure. Employing the soldier’s skills in surveillance, survival and combat, we follow Sam through a series of events that are bewildering yet intrinsically believable, as various mysteries of the universe are revealed. Battling an unknown sniper who threatens to destroy both the known and unknown, Sam’s unlikely comrades in arms challenge the reader’s understanding of good and evil, state and police control and the Earth’s place in the cosmos. Are all aliens bent on destruction? Are humans the only guardians of our planet? Just how many ‘major climate changing apocalyptic populace extinctive wars’ have taken place on Earth already? In this fast-paced narrative, Burrows links the village of Minera on the outskirts of the washed-out town of Wrexham to the highly-advanced, technologically brilliant, super race of Minerans through gravitational distortions, wormholes and metal-blasting portals. This is a compelling read, with flashes of black humour, technical wizardry and an enigmatic ending.
