Sarah Broadhurst's View...

This is proper sci-fi, the perfect blend of technology and adventure. The narrative is divided between the story of astronauts exploring a meteorite that has come perilously close to earth, and the problems faced by the control teams on the ground. It begins a trilogy, and if the next one is anywhere near as good as this it is sure to be a hit. I believe there is a film on the way as well.

Synopsis

Heaven's Shadow by David S. Goyer, Michael Cassutt

THEY WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO CLAIM IT AS THEIR OWN In 2016 a pair of amateur astronomers spot an unidentified object an object one hundred kilometres across and heading towards Earth. As it approaches, NASA and the Russian-Indian-Brazilian Coalition race to land vehicles on the unexplored surface. With power, money and politics behind each mission, both crews have orders to stop at nothing to get there first. Zack Stewart, NASA's team leader, is determined to succeed. But as they're about to land, violent explosions from the meteorite's surface propel it directly into Earth's orbit. Analysis shows the explosions were timed and deliberate but by whom and why? As the world holds its breath, Zack makes a discovery that will change the course of humanity...forever.
