Publisher's Summary

Is our sun behaving differently from other stars? When an amateur astronomer discovers something strange on telescopic solar pictures, an explanation must be found. Is it merely artifact? Or has he found something totally unexpected? An expert international crew is hastily assembled, a spaceship is speedily repurposed, and the foursome is sent on the ride of their lives. What challenges will they face on this spur-of-the-moment mission to our central star?  

What awaits all of them is critical, not only for understanding the past, but even more so for the future of life on Earth.

Meh!

Good story and narrative until the end. It petered out what could have been an amazing book. Be prepared to be enthralled throughout, and then let down. Good narrator though.

Great story by highly improbable.

Enjoyed the story but it did go into a realm of "impossible" midway through. Great info on the Sun towards the end and as is explained, incredible information and impossible figures to grasp.
