‘Excellent, exactly how good science fiction should be: gripping story, beautifully told, while at the same time being scientifically well-informed.’ tweeted RICHARD DAWKINS. ‘Reminiscent of vintage Arthur C. Clarke .

. . has a chilling, nail-biting authenticity’ said JAMES LOVEGROVE in the Financial Times.

From renowned theoretical physicist, broadcaster and author Jim Al-Khalili, comes this thrilling debut novel drawing on cutting-edge science and set in a near-future full of dazzling technologies. 2041 and the world as we know it grinds to a halt. Our planet seems to be turning against itself – it would appear that the magnetic field, that protects life on Earth from deadly radiation from space, is failing .

. . Desperate to quell the mass hysteria that would surely follow, world governments have concealed this rapidly emerging Armageddon.

But a young Iranian hacktivist stumbles across the truth, and it becomes a race against time to reactivate the earth’s core using beams of dark matter. As a small team of brave and brilliant scientists battle to find a way of transforming theory into practice, they face a fanatical group intent on pursuing their own endgame agenda: for they believe mankind to be a plague upon this earth and will do anything, commit any crime, to ensure that the project fails . .

. And so bring about humanity’s end.
