I could not put this book down! It really is that good!

I was a bit sceptical given the other books that have been written by Stephen Baxter as I really do not like science fiction books, but this book is in no way a typical science fiction book.

The book follows the lives of four hostages who have been detained by a group of fundamentalists in a civil war in Spain. On being rescued they all return to the UK during a flooding event that overtops the Thames Barrier. However, the flooding doesn't stop there and sea levels keep rising.

A fantastic book. Well-developed and believable characters, a good bit of science thrown in and an ever-thickening plot. I really couldn't put this book down. If you buy it you won't be disappointed!

I also hear there is a sequal on the way. I can't wait!
