Space scientist Carin Gonzales and former submarine commander Jake Sabio are two strangers drifting separately through life when a thunderous explosion above the giant Barringer Meteor Crater inexplicably brings them together, transforming both in unpredictable ways. Now able to see and smell more precisely and move in ways that are clearly impossible, Gonzales and Sabio soon realize that these kinds of life-changing alterations do not come without a price. Worse yet, they soon notice that others who witnessed the explosion are now dead from a seemingly incurable infection.
The CDC wants nothing more than to lock them up in a lab for study. Special Agent Will Greenfield wants them for questioning. Contract killer Antonio Crubari would be happy if they would just hurry up and die, but he is willing to speed up the process if need be. Time is running out for Gonzales and Sabio. But even as they struggle to survive and find a cure for the deadly infection, they uncover a secret of monumental proportions that changes everything - including the future.

"A gripping sci-fi thriller...hang on and don't let go!" (Andrew Chaikin, author of A Man on the Moon)
Top 25 percentile.Well crafted journey, performed very well with enough twists and turns to keep the listener engaged with the story.
The entire "conclusion" is relatively drama filled and moves forward in a manner that is unavoidably compelling.
Yes, she is excellent at owning the characterrs, and keeping them clearly differentiated. I feel this is exactly the type of book that lends itself to an audio format, versus print.
Made me research the concepts, that is for sure.
This is a keeper, and a good example of a production I downloaded purely on recommendations from other listeners. Surely a lesson there! Enjoy.
