This review was written for LibraryThing Member Giveaways.
This book is chock full of adventure, the reader will never be bored with this story. Janna is a very exciting character who the reader will be rooting for throughout the entire book. Science fiction lovers will adore this book; readers who don't normally choose this genre might like this book, the "science" words are well defined and not too hard to understand. The reader will really get to know Janna. She is the character that is focused on throughout the novel. The plot is intricately developed, the environment Janna finds herself in is easy to picture-a quality that is not that common in science fiction novels. Excitement continues throughout the novel, there is no lag in action. The reader worries for Janna and cheers her on. This novel is great for young adults/adults who enjoy science fiction and even those who want to give the genre a try. ( )
