It is a lesson from history we have learned to accept
The only problem is … for many of us

… that lesson might have come too late

"Humanity’s greatest discovery ... the journey has only just begun."

Sarah Morgan is trapped, a prisoner in a highly classified subterranean facility, the existence of which is undeniable proof of the most amazing discovery in human history. If Sarah is to unleash this forbidden knowledge, she must use all her skills and tenacity to escape to the surface; against the odds can she achieve her life’s ambition and expose the truth to the world?

Above ground, the peoples of planet Earth struggle to come to terms with their new existence after the impact of the asteroid, AG5. Plunged into darkness, the dust cloud kicked up by the meteorite seeks to destroy the fragile order of civilisation itself. In this new, sunless world a courageous BBC newsreader, Jessica Klein, attempts to fight those in power and wrest from them a secret she may wish she’d never known. Elsewhere, two men working for the GMRC, the behemoth that is the Global Meteor Response Council, are struggling against monumental adversity thrust upon them by one of their own. Professor Steiner and Richard Goodwin may be humanity’s greatest hope, but their destinies are shrouded by a chaos neither can control. Running out of luck, choices and time they must reclaim their chosen paths or watch those around them wither and die.

    I will admit, I am glad this book is finished so I can move on to something better. The archaeologists are painfully juvenile, at times seeming to emanate from the halls of a high school. I am mildly ...

    This multi-book series continues with the Global Meteor Response Council up to its usual nasty tricks, having become an almost all-powerful organization globally. The first meteor had struck off South...

    An excellent continuation of the first book. Great character development and good interweaving of separate story lines. On the other hand, the conditions on the surface I cannot believe. There is no w...
