My Rating: ★★★★☆
Disclaimer: I bought this book with myself, all opinions are my own.
After reading Kayla Olson’s first book, The Sandcastle Empire, last year which I really enjoyed, I’ve been looking forwards to this one ever since! It’s a murder mystery set in space! All the adults who came from Earth suddenly died from some sort of deadly virus and the children who were born on the Lusca (the name of their ship) are immune to said virus.
Then suddenly one of their own dies from what looks to be a mutated version of the virus until further investigation has gone into it to only find out that someone on the ship is a murderer.
I really enjoyed reading this one, I found that it was gripping and just had you hooked into finding out who the murderer was, it got narrowed down to 6 people and it really does keep you guessing! I made a guess of who I thought that the killer was and got it wrong so it’s nice that it wasn’t predicable.
I’m really enjoyed Kayla’s books and they’re both so different from each other so I can’t wait to see what she brings out next!
