In this bestselling novel by the authors of THE MOTE IN GOD’S EYE, a massive comet breaks apart and bombards the Earth, with catastrophic results: worldwide earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, thousand-foot tidal waves and seemingly endless rain… With civilization in ruins, individuals band together to survive and to build a new society. “A MEGATON OF SUSPENSEFUL EXCITEMENT … which should keep readers going non-stop, cover to cover” – Booklist.

“A work in the grand tradition … even the miracle of Sensurround may be inadequate to convey all the imaginative reverberations.”
– Los Angeles Times

“A ‘Disaster’ thriller of rare quality … for its expertise and the scale of its apocalypse … Strings out the suspense almost unbearably.”
– John Barkham Reviews
