Humanity only has days to prepare. Can one family survive?
SOMETHING MASSIVE IS COMING, and it's heading for Earth. That's what astronomer Ben Rollins is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter, Jessica, who's vacationing in Italy with his wife.
“It's a hundred times bigger than the sun,” Ben tells them. “Somehow we can't see it yet, and we don't know what it is, but they're calling it Nomad--and in just months, the Earth may be destroyed.”
But how did they miss detecting it until now?
The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches, and Ben discovers his wife and daughter are trapped in Europe.
The key to Nomad's mystery--and humanity's ultimate survival--rests in the answers Ben pieces together from his old Cold War-era research papers, in the midst of a desperate scramble across continents to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet.

But the fight for survival has only begun.
In the Day of the Nomad, oceans flooded the continents, the earth split open and poured darkness into the skies. A mass extinction event as the Earth hadn't witnessed in more than two hundred and fifty million years, the planet flung into a radical new orbit around the Sun.
Jessica Rollins survived, hidden away in a mountaintop in Italy, and has made radio contact with other survivor groups scattered around the wrecked globe--but the destruction is only just beginning.
The key to humanity's survival may lie in a backpack she recovered from her father, in the data he collected more than thirty years before as Harvard's preeminent astrophysicist. Information he died trying to protect.
His final words to her circle around and around in her head...survive, no matter what.
But at what cost? And what is...Sanctuary?

With their lives and the fate of the nation hanging in the balance, the bigger question becomes--who is the real enemy?
Jessica Rollins has made it to safety inside the Sanctuary system with the help of Ufuk Erdogmus, but is her mysterious savior really who he says he is? What secrets does he hide?
