Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.

Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone - one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship - tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.

Now, Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.

Review Overview:
Wonderfully written. Amazing characters, plotline and mystery element throughout the entire novel, leaving me in suspence and then completely astounded as the truth unravelled.

Just an incredible book. Pick it up and read it. Now.


  1. Wow, this sure is a great review! I've been curious about this for quite some time, but I just never got to the point of actually getting myself a copy. If possible, you've made me even more intrigued by it now though, so it's definitely being pushed up the to-read list!

    I love that you actually yelled out in class! ;) Definitely shows a book is good!

  2. Great review! I got this book and it's on my TBR pile (I don't have enough time to read, I'm still focusing on mid term). I can't hardly wait to read this book. And I have to agree with you! The cover IS such a beauty! :D

  3. I was hesitating to buy this book, because I've also read many reviews from people who didn't like it, but yours convinced me. Ordering it today! And the cover is GORGEOUS. One of the most beautiful covers I've ever seen!

  4. I saw this book and passed it to pick up Between the Lines. Regretting it now. I am sooo going back to get it

  5. This is definitely near the top of my TBR pile. Isn't the cover just gorgeous? I'm so excited to read it! And what a great review!

  6. I love this book's cover! but I'm not sure about the story because it is set in a spaceship... should I read it anyway?
