Read an Excerpt

They rounded the corner, turning north onto 13th Street. Just one block away, beyond all the cordons and emergency lights, stood the broken tail cone of a jumbo jet. The buildings around it were devastated with ash and debris. One apartment complex had crumbled to rubble.

Hannah covered her mouth. “Oh my God.”

More than a hundred thousand planes, jets and helicopters had been up in the air seven hours ago, when all the world’s engines fell still. A third of them plummeted into water. Another third hit the hard empty spaces between human life. The final third just hit hard. San Diego had suffered twenty-two crashes within its borders.

Hannah gaped at the tall gray clock tower of the 12th&Imperial Transit Center, just a hundred yards away. It was a local landmark, one she’d passed a thousand times on her way to work. Now it had been de-clocked, decapitated. Every window on the south side of the building was shattered, with burn marks all over the frame.

All around her, people fretfully chattered. A stringy blond teenager brandished a transistor radio, declaring to anyone willing to listen that he’d heard voices through the static. People in other cities were talking about the same things.

“This is happening all over,” he insisted. “Everywhere!”

I didn't expect much when I bought this, certainly not to be so absorbed. It reminded me a little bit of orphans of chaos and was very well done. For any true sci fi enthusiast this is a must read.

Imaginative, original and beautifully written. The characters grow and change (and also develop wildly entertaining super powers). Time is elastic. This isn't another planet, just a parallel universe with similarities to earth as we know it -- and yet tweaked and twisted. It's hard to find an adventure story with complicated and very human characters you care deeply about. This book has both.

BEST SCI FI BOOK OUT THERE! Do yourself a favor and read it now! I never leave reviews, but this book was so incredible, complex, mystifying, and kick ass that I had to share my thoughts with everyone and hopefully encourage more people to try it out. Truly one of my favorite books.

Once started, I couldn't put this book down. The characters and the plotline were engaging. Can't wait for the next book in the series

Interesting but not very sophisticated. Rather than a serious disscussion about the psychology behind bad desicions, the author is quick to use words like "stupid" and "foolish" to describe people that fall for some of the scams out there. Interesting topic. Missed opportunity to do it well.

More sophisticated writing than most YA dystopia reads. Creative plot held my interest for all 555+ pages. Hope the quality of the sequel is as high.

If you like sci-fi you will like this book. Keeps your interest all the way through. An apocalyptic type story with many twists and turns. Good character development. Worth the purchase.
