The Solar Flare that Silenced the Internet'
By Jake Blake
Earth has less than 14 hours before a solar superstorm disrupts all modern technology, resets the Internet and forces highly connected people to adapt to a new world without electricity.
Travel in style with the rich and famous from their luxurious Manhattan penthouse to the pink sand beaches of Bermuda, race through the streets of London with a flash mob at your heels, float above the Earth in a powerless spacecraft with limited oxygen and no heat, fight a power plant meltdown single-handedly and climb the stairway to heaven during judgment day.
This stylish, modern adventure features a rich cast of intelligent, well-connected characters who are suddenly isolated and compelled to react to local and global changes, including a New York hedge fund manager and his supermodel wife, a sailboat captain, a London teen Internet sensation, an American soldier in Afghanistan, a farmer, a telecommunications expert in the holy city of Mecca and the three-member crew of the International Space Station. See a more detailed list of characters below.
Author Jake Blake will have you wondering if technology is a blessing or a curse as characters cope with one crisis after the next and experience the worst electromagnetic storm to hit Earth in 150 years.

"Unlike most modern apocalyptic thrillers, the main characters in 'Sunburned' are smart, polite and friendly. Nobody goes on a senseless killing spree, but there are a few daring bank robberies, car chases and a couple of steamy sex scenes."
