Annotation:
In Liz Jensen's apocalyptic thriller, a therapist named Gabrielle Fox, who has recently been confined to a wheelchair after a car accident, begins to believe that her latest patient, a teenager named Bethany who brutally murdered her own mother, has the power of prophecy. As a child, Bethany was constantly subjected to her parents' intense, often violent divinations that the rapture was coming and that Bethany was doomed to hell, along with most of the rest of humanity. When a series of climactic disasters begins the ravage the planet, Fox and her partner begin to believe that perhaps Bethany has some insight into the final fate of the world, but they have no way of warning anyone without causing mass panic. As Bethany's predictions get more precise, and the catastrophes get more devastating and widespread, Fox realizes that the only way to understand the nature of what's happening is to risk her own sanity by probing deeper into the tormented psyche of this sadistic child.

Praise

"[Jensen] handles the eco disaster thriller with panache, her plainish prose greasing a fast-paced plot buoyed by a wealth of paranormal intrigue." - Toby Lichtig 06/19/2009

"Apocalyptic global climate change fuels Jensen's terrifying near-future tale about the human will to survive....In gorgeous prose, [she] paints an depressing but oddly hopeful portrait of a modern doomsday scenario." (starred review) 06/29/2009

"Rich in multifaceted characters and equally enthralling and chilling, Jensen's novel is so plausible it's frightening." (starred review) - Kristine Huntley 08/01/2009
