really liked it

It's not often that I'm surprised by a second book in a series, but such is the case with this one. Waverly is back on board Empyrean, Seth is in the brig, and Kieran is listening to godly voices and trying to get his crew to follow him with some kind of messianic cult. And if that's not enough tension, there's a deadly, mysterious saboteur onboard. The teens interact in completely believable ways, trying to figure out the mystery while they negotiate their own internal demons and the very real power struggles. The only idea keeping this from 5 stars for me is the issue that the science fiction setting remains in the background. This is more a teens in space drama than true sci fi, and that's too bad. Looking forward to the next one!
