A Careful exploration of inner and outer space
There’s a lot to like about this book. The character- and world-building are phenomenal and I found myself heavily invested in the character of Sally Jansen especially. I didn’t agree with the whole demonization when she chose to save her crew, but that is probably how the world would take it.
Overall, this was a great book that I really, really enjoyed right up until the point where you find out more about the alien ship. I found that part disappointing and limiting the scope of the book. Others may totally not agree, but I would have liked the aliens to have been a bit different, and therefore the conclusion didn’t really work for me. Because I enjoyed the book so much up until that point, I’m only knocking it down one star.
I received this book as an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) from the publisher through NetGalley. My opinions are my own.
