Publisher's Summary

'The windows on all the skyscrapers are smashed....

No power, no lights, no people....

It's a parallel New York of some kind.'

The coming end.

When Skye Rogers and her twin brother, Red, move to Manhattan, rumours of a coming global apocalypse are building. But this does not stop the young elite of New York from partying without a care.

Can you keep a secret?

And then suddenly Skye is invited to join an exclusive gang known as the Secret Runners of New York. 

But this is no ordinary clique - they have access to an underground portal that can transport them into the future. 

And what Skye discovers in the future is horrifying.

Run! As fast as you can!

As society crumbles, Skye and Red race to figure out how to use their knowledge to survive the impending annihilation. They soon discover that the chaotic end of the world is the perfect time for revenge....

Great storytelling.

This is the first novel by Matthew Reilly that I’ve read of listened to, I will definitely be checking out some of his other books.
Though it took a bit for me to get into this book I’m glad I persisted. This book was full of excitement and quite a few twists. Great narrating by Jacqui Duncan.

Disappointed

I have waited so long for Matthew Reilly’s latest book and I’m sorry to say I couldn’t even finish it. I was very disappointed that his audience was 15 and 16 year olds.
Bring back the old Matthew Reilly PLEASE, if the next book is about Skye I will not be interested.

another big hit

while listening to the first part of this book it was almost irritating listening to the spoilt little rich kids the story Is based around. I almost wanted turn it off but then it hit me that it was a story and once again Matthew had taken me so far into it and made it so alive. I couldn't stop this book like all of Matthews is amazing you get so lost in the world that he brings to life you never want it to stop always wondering what next always wanting it to continue
