Much better than the usual Christian SF, with a tight beginning and a legitimately fascinating mystery. Once you get the mystery though, the book weakens a bit.

Zinovy is an ex-FSB officer who has to flee to a stint on the international space station in order to avoid the wrath of his superior. He survives one attempt on his life, but shortly after that the earth is devastated by a tremendous nuclear event. Now the crew of the station has to land to avoid slow death by running out of oxygen. The

Okay. I'm not going to rate it, because I'm too close to the author to make a valid judgment, but I have to put in a plug for it because of the message. Super important one. Zinovy is an ex FSB agent who has spent his life killing for the Motherland. Now his life is on the line, but before his assassins succeed in eliminating him, they are eliminated, along with the rest of the world as we know it. Zinovy finds himself returning from space to a world that's been re-made into something that chall ...more

I actually want to rate this book a 10, not a five! That's how awesome it is!
This is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. For a first novel, Ginny Jaques sure knows how to grab the reader right from the instant the book begins and not let go. The description is magnificent, the characters varied and believable, and the action is well paced. Despite the fact that this is a really long book, I didn’t want to stop reading until I reached the final page.

The book is set in the not too dis

"When the world ends… Zinovy’s journey begins."

Zinovy Kozlov was a successful assassin. Then he was running for his life. Now the earth itself has changed and his enemies are dead or out of reach. As he tackles the physical pilgrimage to the one remaining city on the planet, he doesn’t see that he and his companions are on a spiritual journey as well.

Zinovy’s Journey is "a speculative novel in three parts: The End, The Journey, and The Beginning." It offers a little bit of just about everything:

Imagine a world where religion has been eliminated and the disparate cultures of the world have been assimilated into a single, secular state. Now insert a Russian soldier-hitman who's fled to the International Space Station after refusing to assassinate the mother of his yet-unborn child. Then destroy Earth. You now have the setting for Zinovy's Journey, by Ginny Jaques. It's the spiritual and physical journey of a man who has learned to trust only himself, and to love no one.

Zinovoy's journey is when the world as we know it ends. This was a good book. There was some confusing parts however if you would push thorough them they would become clear. During the book some Christian beliefs are explained in an easy and understanding way.

Overall impression of the book is that it was good, maybe a bit long, and also had good solid facts based on Biblical and Christian fact.

I received a free copy for an honest review.

I was certain I reviewed this, but it is one of the best prophetic novels I've ever read. It covers the millennium in a way that will surprise you, but is soundly Biblical. In other words it is certainly a possibility of how things will happen.

It is a wonderful book! One of the best I've ever read and I've read a couple hundred books a years since the mid-1950s.

This story, a first novel from author with a knack for sharp dialogue and emotional characters, is not only a thrilling science fiction story, easy to read and enjoy, but also an impressive attempt to answer a lot of the deeper questions that we, as a human race, so often wonder about. I look forward to more from this author.
