I don’t normally read YA, and the premise aims for fans of Divergent, which I haven’t read, but I’m a big fan of J.P. (James) Smythe’s character work and mystery-built science fiction. I enjoyed the setting of being on a ship, isolated from the truth of what brought them there, and fearing a small civilization built on myth and ruthless violence. The main character grew on me by the end, though at times the brutal nature of her environment was hard to endure. I’m glad I kept reading, because the ending had great action and revelations about this ship’s habitat, its purpose and the adventure to come. The book gets bogged down at times with the isolation of tiny confines within the ship, and a repetitive cycle of hunting and running, but the ending was a breath of fresh air that made me eager to jump right in to the sequel, Long Dark Dusk.
