This thrilling science fiction novel from Binge (Professor Everywhere) is full of exploration and intriguing thoughts about the true nature of life on Earth. When the story opens, readers hear from Ben Tunmore, whose brother Harry has been missing and presumed dead for 30 years. Harry’s story is told in an episodic fashion, through a series of letters that the family finds in his room at the facility. The haunting story traces Harry’s involvement with a secretive government agency, which asks him to determine if a friend of his can actually see the future. Intrigued, Harry wheedles his way further into the government investigation, eventually landing a spot on the next team to explore a massive mountain that has unexpectedly, suddenly, grown from the middle of the ocean. The story of that improbable and amazing ascent brings mystery and thrills as nothing is as it seems, and the implications for God and humanity are staggering.
VERDICT An exciting story where the undiscovered wonders of Earth prove as exciting as those out in the galaxy.
