Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This is quite simply a brilliant sci-fi novel and story. It is a post-apocalyptic vision that is stunning in its breadth and complexity. It easily rivals the power of Stephen King's THE STAND and Neville Shute's ON THE BEACH. [...] What a jewel!" - James A. Anderson

- "[...] The author provides so much accurate information on so many different scientific notions that you can't come away from reading this book without having learned something. The ending leaves the reader with a sense of hope for humanity. As I said before, this book will make you think. All in all, this is a highly recommended read!" - Natasha Slight

- "[...] This book is scary in so far as it is a reality that many people today live with, are we going to destroy ourselves by neglecting nature or by war. Unlike many other sci-fi books or paranormal books this book's premise is very possible." - Linda (Amazon)

- "[...] Suspense, action and anxiety, they make it very difficult to stop reading until you reach the end, and then make you ask for more! On the other hand, you read emotions, doubts, and love in every page with modesty, very simple and touching words, which makes the story even more concrete and "true". I rediscovered Geneva in a way that I am almost surprised to see living people in the streets now :)" - Nicolas (Amazon)

- "[...] The ending is brilliant. It answers all your questions, though not in any way you would ever anticipate. If you have the time, I would really recommend this book. Massimo Marino is a gifted writer and is able to combine science and fantasy in a seamless and interesting manner. I was able to truly relate to the characters and events. Even when the story introduces aliens and other fantasy elements, the writing feels real. The writing is very deep, and reading this book is a very enlightening experience. You will feel like you are not only reading a story, but also exploring a whole new world." - Rocket7001 (Amazon)
