What a refreshing book! So nice to see such a well-considered mix of realistic as well as fantastic elements. For a futuristic setting, it has some frighteningly believable premises. The heart of the story doesn't shy from the sad possibility that humanity really might not manage to learn from our past, and yet the resilience and courage of the characters continually reminds us that even as individuals, we can still have a positive part to play. Using Kaire's viewpoint as an outsider's perspective is very clever, helping us to feel what it might be like to find ourselves on the 'privileged' side of a system we know is unjust. I am very curious to see how the story will play out in the next installment!… (more)

Great! This book brings in so many important elements that amplify the important themes of our time: climate change, the great economic divide between rich and poor, the entrenched racism, and also our wish for a better life, even if it is beyond the stars. Holding it all together is the focus on compassion and love, which survive even in the ,ost hostile of surroundings. Highly recommended for fans of sci-fi. Bonus: it has an Australian/New Zealand focus!… (more)

I was pulled into the story from page 1.

Very visual writing - easy to picture where people are and even feel the surroundings.

Now the challenge is waiting for book 2 and book 3! - Bevianne Fitch
