I have to confess that military heavy novels aren’t my favorite things, most being too technical for me to follow. Twinkle finds a decent balance between military jargon and common vernacular to allow for an enjoyable read.
After a brilliant global firework’s display, most of the world’s population finds in the days that fall their vision is quickly fading. With only a select few who haven’t been effected by the loss of vision, military and political leaders struggle to get to the truth behind what’s happened. In a twisting adventure that spans from July 3rd until July 17th, the fate of the global population rests on whether or not the mystery of what exactly happened can be solved and if it can be reversed.
If you enjoy novels in the Science Fiction genre, this book will definitely give you the thrill of what lies at the heart of Science Fiction.
