Summary
"From the author of the smash hit, New York Times bestselling One Second After series comes a thriller in which the survival of humanity itself is at stake. The countdown is on. In less than forty eight hours, Earth will be hit by a major solar storm. At first, it is thought to be a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that will severely damage our world's electronic infrastructure. A crisis to be certain, but one that can be survived--until something far more frightening is discovered by NASA's solar observation teams. It is not just a CME. The sun is about to let loose with a solar explosion of such intensity it will result in an ELE, an "Extinction Level Event." A final hour might be approaching that could see the near extinction of all life on earth. How will humanity reaction to such news? How would you react?" --
Summary
In 48 hours, the Earth will be hit by a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from the Sun, a "Carrington Event" that has the power to shut down and possibly destroy the world's electrical infrastructure. To try and prevent permanent damage, everything goes dark prior to the hit: global communications are shut down; hospital emergency generators are disconnected; the entire internet, media broadcasting, and cell phone systems are turned off. Will the world's population successfully defend itself in the wake of the CME, or will mass panic lead to the breakdown of society as we know it?
