In my opinion, I think the pot was the best part. It was so good, always introducing a new twist, so, just as you thought you'd got the ending, there was another plot twist. And then that ending left me wondering how I can survive until the next book comes out.
Phydus is no longer controlling the ship. Unfortunately, now that there isn't Phydus to keep the people in control, everyone wants to rebel do things their own way, you know how humans are. Elder is trying to maintain peace, but its difficult for him, especially when some people are doubting his ability to rule the ship. The result? Chaos. Lots of it. And Amy is in a bad situation as well, because the people blame her for all their problems. But Amy and Elder have even bigger problems, if that is possible. They have discovered a set of clues left by Orion, leading to Godspeed's biggest secret.
I liked the clues left by Orion, because it showed that he is not just an evil criminal, which is definitely more realistic than some other evil guys I have encountered in other books. Authors, the world isn't black and white! It was also great because it felt like the readers job to solve the clues. I can tell you, I was racking my brain right along with Amy and Elder.
One thing I didn't get. Why were the people so mad? He got rid of Phydus, got rid of the murderer, tried to rule the ship rightly, what wasn't he doing?
I also liked the character growth in this book. In Across the Universe, Elder was very unsure of himself, always second guessing himself, but its nice in this book to see him grow a backbone and more into the leader personage.
This book is perfect, the plot twists very interesting but not too weird, characters that aren't black and white, and a writing style that really draws you in.
I definitely recommend it!!! I can't wait until the next one comes out!!!
