In Dennis Danvers's New York Times Notable Book, Circuit of Heaven, the majority of earth's population escaped death by uploading their minds into the virtual reality of "the Bin." But, as End of Days reveals, their escape is not the success they had thought. The Bin is supposed to be paradise--yet immortals are committing suicide. And the mortals left behind on the ravaged earth are fanatically seeking the Bin's physical location, which they believe God has ordered them to destroy.
An exciting, romantic SF entertainment, End of Days is at the same time a thoughtful consideration of mortality and love, divinity and reality, the purpose of life and the end of the universe. The novel is so ambitious that the last few symbol- and action-packed chapters go by too quickly; they should have formed the frame of a full-length sequel. But End of Days brings Danvers's duology to an appropriately vast ending. --Cynthia Ward
