“[A] violent, whimsical, and expansive tale of disparate people coming together to save the world . . . the complicated puzzle of a plot is pleasantly twisty, and the ending feels satisfyingly correct.” ―Publishers Weekly
“A stunning apocalyptic thriller in the tradition of The Stand.” ―Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of The Omega Project, on End Time

If you're a fan of Stephen King and liked (especially) The Stand, you need to read this book. The evil is introduced slowly so as not to overwhelm the reader, but it is at least as dark as any I've found in King's work. The pace and suspense build as you are offered mysteries that emerge into a seeming pattern, but with nothing apparently tying them together.
Mr. Korman's grasp of scientific principles and his ability to present them to the reader in coherent, understandable terms is phenomenal. Further, his Easter eggs of bits of American culture found on nearly every page in characters' dialogue and thought are beyond clever. As the story passed an "against all odds" climax and wound down tying up loose ends, I found myself wanting more. Seeing "The End" was a disappointment.
This book is a winner, and one of the best I've read this year.
Give it a try -- you won't be sorry.
(For a book to get 5 stars from me it must be engaging if not gripping, believable, involve me emotionally with the characters and their struggles, and leave me wanting more. This book met all those criteria.)
