Summary:
Cade just wants to spend her life playing her guitar. Unfortunately, she finds out that she is tied to Xan and is fated to save the human race. In this space related adventure, Cade makes some new friends who make decisions to change the possible outcomes of the future.

My thoughts:
My summary is rather short because there are a lot of things within the plot that are best just to be read. As in all science fiction, the intricacies are harder to explain rather than just to read and see them build upon one another. Cade is a good character. She is a loner that builds trust in other people and really becomes an awesome friend. While I don't understand some of the decisions that she makes, I really did enjoy her general attitude. Her tie in to music brings an extra element to the story that I enjoyed.
The real downfall of this book is the world building. In a good science fiction or fantasy novel, the author must bring us into the world that they are creating. It's important to tell the reader what is going on around us in an unfamiliar setting. Other than being in space, there really is no reason that the world is in the state that it is in. Not until about 3/4 of the way through the book are back stories and history are revealed about the world that we are in. It left me feeling out of place. I was building a world in my head that didn't necessarily go with the novel and was based mostly upon movies. I decided that since it was a space related book, I was going with a Star Trek theme. This doesn't really fit with some of the characters or basic knowledge of space in general, but it gave me some visual, which the author did not.
