I'm not a big science fiction fan personally but this book caught my eye with it's beautiful cover art. The plot was interesting and I will definitively branch out into sci/fi reads more often. The writing just wasn't great. The back and forth between the two perspectives of Amy and Elder was cool. Often times though I found myself eye rolling at some of the rushed dialog, quick sum ups, obvious story direction, and total lack of character development.

Normally I am have a hard time with conclusions and pick them to death, wondering why an author chose to end it that way. However, I really enjoyed the ending of this book. There was a perfect lead into book 2, all my questions were answered and yet I am curious to read what is going to happen next. Even though I didn't love this book. I may sometime read the second book.... but I won't rush to do so.
