This one is difficult to review, because the major themes of the book and the author's handling of them were both engaging and off-putting. I definitely felt like the main female character was more well-developed than the main male character. I do like how she juxtapositions the way the boys handle survival as opposed to the way the girls do, although both sides seem predictable. There seems to be a question of whether monotheistic (Christian, really) faith is a requisite part of society, or a tool for evil, which seems like a very shallow and exclusionary argument. The pacing of the book was certainly fast, which makes it a quick read, and I appreciate the level of detail Ryan included in space travel and physics. Ultimately, I don't care enough about Waverly or Kieran to reach for the sequel, but I think if her arguments were less heavy-handed, this could be a compelling YA series.

I actually didn't like this book very much... I mean it was okay but I didn't think it was very good, really. But then I got the second book (spark) and the second book was waaayyy awesome!!!!! So definitely read this book, if only so you can read the second book!

I found the characters annoying and stupid. They're just 15, so the way they acted seemed funny because what they were expression was so "deep".
