Publisher's Summary

Something big is coming...big enough to destroy the entire solar system...and it's heading straight for Earth. That's what Dr. Ben Rollins, head of Harvard's exoplanet research team, is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter and wife, who are vacationing in Italy: Something is coming, he tells them, a hundred times the mass of our sun. We can't see it, we don't know what it is, but it's there. They're calling it Nomad, and it's coming fast. In just a few months, the Earth may be destroyed.
The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches - and Ben discovers that his wife and daughter are trapped in Italy. The key to humanity's survival may rest in the final answers he pieces together in the midst of his frantic scramble to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet.

She'll be coming down the solar system!

Where does Nomad rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top third for sure. For a dystopian themed book, this one alot going for it. Family drama, tribal issues, science, there is a great deal going on here.

What other book might you compare Nomad to and why?

Gosh, the nuances of this one make it unique. Any of the "something heading for earth that will kill us all off" genre would fit. That said, this one is complex and has ( in particular ) family relationships that add to the story and make it a fascinating listen.

What about Keith Szarabajka’s performance did you like?

He was consistent, creative and added intensity to what might otherwise be some dry science sections. A wonderful clear and powerful reading.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I almost did.

Any additional comments?

For the genre this live in, this is a very rich and satisfying listen, with a strong balance of science and drama. It is the start of a series as well, and I look forward to continuing the adventure. Highly recommended.

Female lead character is annoying!

I tried this book twice because the idea sounds great, and I read another book by this author,Cyber Storm, and it was fantastic, but this book is not. The characters are annoying, and I did not like the narrator’s voices.
