The book starts in 2012 with 28 years until an asteroid hits the earth marking the end of human life Idaho Plot
Long time ago, a spaceship is sent into space. After many years, poeple have forgotten about it. In 2012, it decides to come back. But it's not coming alone. It's bringing with it, an asteroid that will destroy all human life on Earth. One group of scientists will try to destroy the asteroid by launching spaceships armed with weapons into space. Another group is trying to survive the impact of the asteroid by digging deep underground, and resurfacing years later, when the Earth is hospitable to human life. Will this be enough to save the human race and all life on Earth? Personal Rating
I really enjoyed reading End of Days. It was very similar to a mystery story because it was about the end of the world. Everything was a mystery and there were many variables in the planning. If you are a person who is interested in science or space, this would be a good read for you. End of Days is fast paced and you just won't want to stop reading. Other Books Written by Eric Walters
