  1. This book was slow moving at first. The first chapter when Amy is frozen is brutal and interesting but the story crawled along afterwards. Amy’s thoughts while she was frozen were not all that interesting and while learning about the ship was important to the later plot I found my attention wandering. However once Amy was unfrozen I was avidly turning pages eager to see what was next.

    The characters of this book were absolutely amazing. They all were multi-dimensional and engaging. Amy and Elder were well fleshed out and the romance between them seemed to grow naturally.

    The plot, once it got going, didn’t seem to stop. From mating seasons and revisionist history to suicide and murder I couldn’t put the book down I was so involved. The scary Big Brother vibes throughout the story had me hooked.

    I liked the way it ended as well. There was no magic solution that made all the problems go away. There were still loose ends left.

    Don’t be discouraged by the slow part. It’s beyond worth it to push past it.
