What I liked

✅ this book destroyed me emotionally; I have no words which I wish to use which can describe it

✅ "hard" sci-fi; space, technology and aliens and central to the plot and attention is paid to the details

✅ fully-realised, well-developed characters who drive the plot and make realistic decisions which break your heart

✅ philosophical and thoughtful, filled with great morals and a great message of redemption

✅ well-paced plot with plenty of mystery

✖ your expectations will ruin this novel — don't go in thinking this will be anything like Ender's Game, a children's or young adult novel, or a fast-paced sci-fi shoot-up


5/5 🌟

Genre: sci-fi
