Reviews

"Science fiction and spirituality intertwine in Hugo's fun, apocalyptic mystery debut... Hugo adeptly juggles multiple points of view... The arresting prose, an effortless blend of Afrikaans slang and invented jargon, peppered with evocative turns of phrase elevates this from run-of-the-mill science fiction thriller. Fans of gritty environmental sci-fi will enjoy this dynamic, fast-paced debut."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"With a fresh new voice that jumps off the page and an incisive, probing plunge into the double-edged coin of survival and grief, The Down Days brings the tenacious synchronicity of Tom Robbins to science fiction with the pacing and mystery of a thriller."--Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times Bestselling Author-- "Publishers Weekly"
