Productbeschrijving

A new ice age... and a shocking discovery...
will change humanity forever.


* Longlisted for the Wilbur Smith Award for best published novel. *


In the near future, a new ice age has begun.

Humanity stands on the brink of extinction.

Desperate for answers, scientists send probes into the solar system to take readings. Near Mars, a probe spots a mysterious object drifting toward the Sun. Is it the cause of the ice age? Or could it be humanity's only hope of survival?

With time running out, NASA launches a mission to make contact. But the object isn't what anyone thought. In the dark of space, alone, the team makes a discovery that will change the course of human history--and possibly end it.


From A.G. Riddle, the Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author with over FOUR MILLION copies sold worldwide, comes a groundbreaking sci-fi thriller that will forever change the way you look at our planet and humanity's future.

Filled with real science and shocking plot turns, Winter World is the type of thriller that will keep you up late turning the pages until the final, mind-blowing plot twist at the end--a reveal you'll never see coming.


Praise for A.G. Riddle

"...reads like a superior collaboration between Dan Brown and Michael Crichton."

"This is apocalyptic sci-fi at its best."
--Daily Mail on The Solar War


An Extended Look at Winter World

Each month, Earth grows colder.

Snow falls in summer. Glaciers trample cities across North America, Europe, and Asia. The new ice age shows no signs of stopping.

Chaos erupts.

Around the world, people abandon their homes and flock to regions where they can survive. Nations prepare to go to war for the world's last habitable zones.

Scientists search the cause of the new ice age. They send probes into the solar system to collect readings. Near Mars, a probe finds a mysterious object, drifting toward the Sun. Is it responsible for the new ice age? Or is it merely an observer? Or neither? Could it be a relic from a long-extinct civilization? One thing is certain: investigating the object is humanity's best hope of survival.

As the ice age claims more lives and the world slides into anarchy, an international consortium launches a mission into space to make contact. But the first contact mission doesn't go as planned. What the crew discovers out there is beyond anyone's imagination.

Two members of the first contact mission may hold the keys to humanity's salvation.

Dr. Emma Matthews is the commander aboard the International Space Station. For months, she has watched the world below freeze and civilization unravel. The headlines tell only half of the story. The messages from her sister tell the rest, of a world witnessing mass migrations, fighting for survival, struggling to provide a future for their children. When a catastrophe strikes the ISS, Emma faces her own fight for survival.

Dr. James Sinclair is one of the greatest scientists alive. A mind before his time. Years ago, he invented something with the potential to change the world--an invention that would upset the balance of power in the world forever. Fearing that change, his enemies sent him to prison for a crime he didn't commit. But with humanity's future at stake, NASA asks him to join the first contact mission. His expertise is vital to the mission's success--and to saving Emma. With the clock ticking down to humanity's final days on Earth, James makes a decision that will change his life forever and may determine the fate of the entire human race.


NOTE: this novel is available in Kindle eBook, Audible audiobook, print, and Kindle Unlimited.

Each month, Earth grows colder. Snow falls in summer. Glaciers trample cities across North America, Europe, and Asia. The new ice age gripping the planet shows no signs of stopping.

Chaos erupts. Around the world, people abandon their homes, fleeing the cold, flocking to regions where they can survive.

Nations prepare to go to war for the world's last habitable zones.

NASA and other scientific organizations race to discover why the world is cooling. They send probes into the solar system to collect readings. Near Mars, one of the probes finds something no one expected: a mysterious object, drifting toward the sun. Could it be responsible for the new ice age? And if so, can we stop it? Or is the artifact merely an observer? Or neither? Could it be a relic from a long-extinct civilization? One thing is certain: investigating the artifact is humanity's best hope of survival.

As the ice age claims more lives and the world slides into anarchy, an international consortium launches a mission into space to study the object and make contact. But the first contact mission doesn't go as planned. What the crew discovers out there is beyond anyone's imagination.
