This one was kind of unnerving at parts. There was definitely an almost rape scene. The description of the cryofreeze process was disturbing and then the murder of people who were frozen as well as the blatant control of everyone on board the ship. I'm vaguely interested in reading the next one just to find out what happens, but I'm also not in a hurry. The romance was pretty rushed and the side characters weren't fleshed out.

There is sex, ship-wide hormone mandated sex, near sexual assault. There might have been some language. There was a little bit of violence aside from the murders, but mostly it was just a feeling. The cryofreeze felt violent, the prejudices were violent and the ship was foreboding.
