“This brilliant first novel has it all -- murder, mystery, romance, suspense, and dystopian sci-fi the likes of which we've never seen before. An enormous spaceship headed for a destination hundreds of years into the future becomes a ship of lies and murder, where two teens attempt to maneuver through the madness. Both teens and adults will fly through this one!”
— Hallie Wilkins, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL

Description


Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the vast spaceship "Godspeed." She expects to awaken on a new planet, 300 years in the future. But fifty years before "Godspeed"'s scheduled landing, Amy's cryo chamber is unplugged, and she is nearly killed.
Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. "Godspeed"'s passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader, and Elder, his rebellious and brilliant teenage heir.
Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she? All she knows is that she must race to unlock "Godspeed"'s hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.
