There are 6 equally balanced protagonists, and the writer bounces between each one in a consistent order. It gives a very comfortable plot flow, and makes sure that the reader doesn't forget what's going on. But here is where it gets good. Without spoiling anything from the plot, let me just say that there are really /two/ different plotlines, and they're both big.
One is a conspiracy involving a group of "99ers" which are people who are bred (artificially) with 1% animal DNA. That concept in itself would be enough for an entire trilogy because the different animal strains all have various abilities. It's a fascinating idea. See, the author set this story in the future, but not too far in the future. The sci-fi is really more science than fiction, because we're probably actually close to doing this sort of thing in real life, today.
The second plotline centers directly on one of the protagonists. Through the whole book we hear what each of the six are up to, but one of them in particular leaves the reader with a little bit of doubt, as their actions are somewhat vague. That is, until the very end. But I'll let you read all about that!
I highly recommend this book. The Perihelion is really well thought out, artfully written, and leaves you wanting more. I think Christopher Nolan should read this book and direct the movie!

– Merriam-Webster Dictionary
Someone wishes to kill particular 99ers, and the people who were investigating why, become hunted. The six character’s destinations all blend to each other, building up this rewarding finale that actually leaves you satisfied.
The book’s layout is sectioned off with each character’s perspective, taking turns. The backstory, history, emotions, personality and everything you need to know about the characters are provided in a fascinating way. I initially thought that I would forget about the first character by the time I had read about the 6th but somehow, the author had managed to keep the information related enough, for me to not lose the flow.
The layout and plot were exquisite. Everything had been researched in a proper manor, and there were no lope holes or questions unanswered to annoy the reader. The literary standard was outstanding, and the novel was delightful for my taste.
I recommend this book to anyone that is a science fiction fan and likes to read on futuristic world settings.
