Summary
Returned to the Earth of 2037 by the Firstborn, mysterious beings of almost limitless technological prowess, Bisesa Dutt is haunted by the memories of her five years spent on the strange alternate Earth called Mir, a jigsaw-puzzle world made up of lands and people cut out of different eras of Earth’s history. Why did the Firstborn create Mir? Why was Bisesa taken there and then brought back on the day after her original disappearance? Bisesa’s questions receive a chilling answer when scientists discover an anomaly in the sun’s core—an anomaly with no natural cause, evidence of alien intervention over two thousand years before. Now, plans set in motion millennia ago by inscrutable watchers light-years away are coming to fruition in a sunstorm designed to scour Earth of all life through a bombardment of deadly radiation. Thus commences a furious race against a ticking solar time bomb. But even now, as the apocalypse looms, cooperation is not easy for the peoples and nations of Earth. Religious and political differences threaten to undermine every effort, and all the while, the Firstborn are watching. A Blackstone Audio production

Summary
In 2037, a sun storm sends a massive surge of energy to Earth, temporarily destroying the world's electronic infrastructure, which presages another, much larger sun storm, expected to hit in 2042, which will utterly annihilate life across the globe. Against all odds, the nations of Earth come together to construct a huge space umbrella that will shield the planet from the worst of the barrage; the answer to why the sun's activity is being manipulated to wipe out life on Earth must wait until the danger is past
