Reviews

Excellent, exactly how good science fiction should be: gripping story, beautifully told, while at the same time being scientifically well-informed. -- PROFESSOR RICHARD DAWKINS
Reminiscent of vintage Arthur C. Clarke . . . has a chilling, nail-biting authenticity. -- James Lovegrove * FINANCIAL TIMES *
The Day After Tomorrow meets Neuromancer . . . When the planet's magnetic field fails, the naked sun threatens to deliver an extinction level event now - and every century - unless a high-tech near future humanity can save itself. Sunfall is sizzling stuff. And the best informed techno-thriller you are ever likely to read. -- STEPHEN BAXTER, author of the Xeelee sequence
With its well-crafted world-building, cutting-edge science, and believable, engaging characters caught in a desperate race to stave off the end of the world, this fast-paced near-future thriller is an impressive debut novel from one of our foremost science communicators. Brilliant! -- Professor IAN STEWART, co-author of The Science of Discworld series
A thrilling futuristic page-turner of a novel in which the future of science, and the technology that underpins it, is as gripping as the plot. -- Professor MARK MIODOWNIK, author of Stuff Matters
