The Solar System as we know it, is going to be changing significantly very shortly. It has become impossible for "them" to hide the coming changes as they have done in the past. Already people are noticing subtle changes in the weather, the sky and even one, the behavior of animals. One of our main characters, Dr. Michael Boulos, a top notch astronomer, believes he knows what is going to happen, and now "they" are trying to kill him! We don't ever find out who "them" and "they" really are.
In one part of this book, for some reason, the Australian government is rounding up everyone and putting them in camps. In fact, every government is doing the same thing and it makes no sense. It doesn't make sense in the book either. What happens will happen whether all the people are rounded up and placed under government "control" or not. The fact is, no government on Earth or anything else can prevent what's about to happen, and "they" know it! Read the book to see if you agree.
Lastly, I hate to say that this book has a great deal of editorial goofs. There are missing words, incomplete sentences, and bad continuity through the book. A much better editing job needs to be done on the next volume, please. These errors really detract from reading the otherwise good story.
I will read the next installment just to see if what I thing happens, does happen.
Jubilee Year is a character driven story that is a roller coaster from beginning to end. You really aren't sure what is going to happen to the main characters, or the world. The first few chapters were incredibly slow, but I stuck it out because I knew that the character building was going somewhere. I'm glad I held on, because what came next blew my mind. This book scared the hell out of me, not because it was jumpy or there were zombies around every corner. This book scared the hell out of me because I whole-heartedly could see this happening. From the cover-up to how this book ended (and beyond because O'Neill has 2 more books planned for this series).
I'm an American, and the story was set in Australia, other than a few choice slang words and some geographical information (thank you Google), this book was definitely readable for audiences outside of Australia.
The characters were funny, likable, hate-able, and just downright believable. I really enjoy when someone takes the time to explain some of the characters motives and how they tick. With that being said, I did mention earlier that the beginning was a little slow. I don't know if I would have gotten the full breadth of the characters without the slower beginning.
Overall, Jubilee Year was an unexpected book for me. I love the cover art (as a graphic designer myself, kudos to the artist). There were only two "bad" take-aways for me. One was the longer intro/character build, and two is that a lot of action happened, but I want more. If you're a long-time reader of my reviews -- you know I hate an ending that isn't an ending. This story had a proper ending per say, but I could have used a little more. With that being said, I will be looking for the second and third book in this series because I want to know what happens!

Strong dystopian sci-fi but that is so overdone anymore.Read more
