Wow, the third millennium is off to a great start, the world didn't end; time to take a break and relax. Well, not exactly. You thought you were safe? Think again! Something much, MUCH, MUCH worse is ahead. The new millennium will bring nothing but disaster and destruction. As six unique people rush feverishly to resolve catastrophes both personal and otherwise, they cannot ignore the loudly ticking clock that will bring THE END OF THE WORLD. And this time its no psychic premonition; it's more real than you've ever dreamed.
The Millennium Blues offers an engrossing drama about mass panic observed with a dispassionate eye and reported in careful, poetic prose. It is a novel not just for today but for years--and millennia--to come.
