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.

Surprised at the enjoyment
She'll be coming down the solar system!
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.
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.
He was consistent, creative and added intensity to what might otherwise be some dry science sections. A wonderful clear and powerful reading.
I almost did.
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.
