“This story is very engaging and has an interesting method of drawing the reader in. The book is relatively short while boasting 300 pages but seems longer as the story brings you in. The chapters are short as well making it possible to read and then set it aside. The plot is very interesting as you get to know the characters Elder and Amy and their romantic plot. The story puts a lot of twists in and by the end it is fairly easy to predict what will happen. One of the biggest influences to the characters was the drain of the empty space and the artificial lights. The ship Godspeed appears like it runs off the lies of the people as none of the minor characters seem to tell the truth the first time. It is a great read and is entertaining through the whole book.”
What is the most important action in this story, to advance the plot? Is the action relatively unimportant, in relation to the mood that the author aims to convey?
Most definitely the most important action to continue the plot was the one that got the plot started, when Amy was awoken by a murder attempt on her. This action is the most important thing that happens in the book because that is the action that started the whole book off. All the attempts to find the murderer that Elder and Amy have stem from this one action. The mood of the story also stems from this action. Even though there are some moments that are light and romantic but the total tone is dark and mysterious and draining. But even though that the tone is dark it is a very good read.
