I'm not usually a fan of stories set in space, but the concept for this book stood out to me as original and very interesting. The dystopian world building was fantastic. I could really imagine this fictional ship's society in all its intricate detail. It brought up a lot of questions about power, leadership, and trust in authority. I enjoyed getting both Amy and Elder's perspectives as alternating narrators. I connected more with Amy, but Elder kind of creeped me out! I didn't really feel a strong sense of chemistry between them as their relationship developed, so that was a bit disappointing. As more and more secrets of the ship were revealed, I became more intrigued. The ending was left unresolved, so I'm really curious to find out what happens in the next book of the series.
