It is a totally captivating story that also has the ability to make you stop and think about what we value and what we are doing to our world.
Elder…student of Eldest and next to rule Godspeed… lived in a world of monoethnic people. He has spent his entire 16 years on Godspeed and was being prepared to take over from Eldest when Eldest died…at the ripe old age of fiftysomething. He has been told distortions about the past history of our Earth or what is known as SolEearth. Amy…another main character who was formerly frozen…was different…the only person on board who had red hair and green eyes and a questioning attitude. The story is exciting and believable and mysterious and deadly. It was one of those books that I always begin to read in a relaxed manner…allowing myself time to get used to the characters, the oddness, the weird reality…and by the time I was halfway through…I had to speed read to finish it. I just couldn’t stop…it was that good. And now that I am finished with it…I miss it…I want more.
Thank goodness it is a trilogy.
