Kingdom Come

(2000) Carl Huberman, Pan, £5.99, pbk, 451pp

On the whole this would probably make a better film than it does a book. Earth, it seems, is about to collide with a large object from space. A shadowy government agency is aware of the imminent arrival and starts to track down two little girls who have inherited strange powers from their parents, following their exposure to a UFO some years before. However, one of the girls is being stalked by a vicious psychopath... Something like a cross between The Midwich Cuckoos, Firestarter and Armageddon, the book wobbles on its own uncertainties occasionally, but Hubermanís writing compensates well. The endingís a bit disappointing, but donít let that put you off - this is still a worthwhile read.
