From renowned theoretical physicist, broadcaster and author Jim Al-Khalili, comes this thrilling debut novel drawing on cutting-edge science and set in a near-future full of dazzling technologies.

2041 and the world as we know it grinds to a halt. Our planet seems to be turning against itself - it would appear that the magnetic field, that protects life on Earth from deadly radiation from space, is failing . . .

Desperate to quell the mass hysteria that would surely follow, world governments have concealed this rapidly emerging Armageddon. But a young Iranian hacktivist stumbles across the truth, and it becomes a race against time to reactivate the earth's core using beams of dark matter.

As a small team of brave and brilliant scientists battle to find a way of transforming theory into practice, they face a fanatical group intent on pursuing their own endgame agenda: for they believe mankind to be a plague upon this earth and will do anything, commit any crime, to ensure that the project fails . . .

And so bring about humanity's end.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Excellent, exactly how good science fiction should be: gripping story, beautifully told, while at the same time being scientifically well-informed. - PROFESSOR RICHARD DAWKINS

Reminiscent of vintage Arthur C. Clarke . . . has a chilling, nail-biting authenticity. - James Lovegrove, FINANCIAL TIMES

The Day After Tomorrow meets Neuromancer . . . When the planet's magnetic field fails, the naked sun threatens to deliver an extinction level event now – and every century – unless a high-tech near future humanity can save itself. Sunfall is sizzling stuff. And the best informed techno-thriller you are ever likely to read. - STEPHEN BAXTER, author of the Xeelee sequence

With its well-crafted world-building, cutting-edge science, and believable, engaging characters caught in a desperate race to stave off the end of the world, this fast-paced near-future thriller is an impressive debut novel from one of our foremost science communicators. Brilliant! - Professor IAN STEWART, co-author of The Science of Discworld series

A thrilling futuristic page-turner of a novel in which the future of science, and the technology that underpins it, is as gripping as the plot. - Professor MARK MIODOWNIK, author of Stuff Matters
