Publisher's Summary

Three strangers, each isolated by his or her own problems: Adaora, the marine biologist. Anthony, the rapper famous throughout Africa. Agu, the troubled soldier. Wandering Bar Beach in Lagos, Nigeria's legendary mega-city, they're more alone than they've ever been before. But when something like a meteorite plunges into the ocean and a tidal wave overcomes them, these three people will find themselves bound together in ways they could never imagine.
Together with Ayodele, a visitor from beyond the stars, they must race through Lagos and against time itself in order to save the city, the world...and themselves.
'There was no time to flee. No time to turn. No time to shriek. And there was no pain. It was like being thrown into the stars.'

Wanted to like this more

Setting was great, though the characters were a bit two dimensional. Story was in need of an edit. Glad I listened though.

Loved the narrators the most

It just have the story a lot of depth, character, and brought the story to life. I couldn't quite get into the story however, I just didn't really get it. Was a little bit disconnected.
