Sarah Morgan is trapped, a prisoner in a highly classified subterranean facility, the existence of which is undeniable proof of the most amazing discovery in human history.

Above ground, the peoples of planet Earth struggle to come to terms with their new existence after the impact of the asteroid, AG5. Plunged into darkness, the dust cloud kicked up by the meteorite seeks to destroy the fragile order of civilisation itself. In this new, sunless world a courageous BBC newsreader, Jessica Klein, attempts to fight those in power and wrest from them a secret she may wish she’d never known. Elsewhere, two men working for the GMRC, the behemoth that is the Global Meteor Response Council, are struggling against monumental adversity thrust upon them by one of their own. Professor Steiner and Richard Goodwin may be humanity’s greatest hope, but their destinies are shrouded by a chaos neither can control. Running out of luck, choices and time they must reclaim their chosen paths or watch those around them wither and die.
