My darling daughter,

Know that I never would have left the Earth if it hadn’t already been doomed. . .

The generation ship Asherah coasts through space, bound for a planet its passengers have never even seen. On the eve of their arrival, sixteen-year-old botanist Terra discovers that her orderly society has fractured. Walking home one night through the long-abandoned engine rooms, she witnesses the murder of an innocent man. Now, called on by the Children of Abel, a group of rebels intent on destroying the High Council, Terra must prove her mettle–assassinate the ship’s rising captain. In order to carry out her task, Terra must betray her father, deceive her teacher, and challenge everything the Council has ever taught her was true.

The rebels think that Terra has nothing left to lose. But when she falls for Silvan Rafferty, the boy that she’s meant to kill, Terra learns that “doing your duty” isn’t always as easy as it seems.

I saw this on Meagan Spooner’s In Search of Write Space project and it sounded pretty interesting. It does remind me of Across the Universe by Beth Revis, though. Also, isn’t that cover super awesome? I really love the range of blues and purples going on in there.

  1. Sounds really interesting, quite unique and spaceships! However, look at that coat she’s wearing, it’s rather horrible! Still, pretty cover otherwise. Great pick! :)

    Oooh and I noticed you’re reading Shiver. I’ll be looking out for your thoughts on that one! :)

    • Hahaha, her coat isn’t THAT bad!

      And yes, Shiver. That one, I might even have enough thoughts about to post a full review, instead of a mini one! We’ll see, once I finish it. I’m only about halfway through right now.

So, what do YOU think?
