What I loved about this book...
I hadn't heard a lot about this story before receiving it and reading it and it was really good that I went into this not knowing a lot about it. What I loved the most in this story is the main character Maisie 'Danger' Brown and how she interacts with different characters throughout the story. I found that she was a very strong character with a good sense of what is right. There is a romance part to this story which turned out to be a bigger part of the story than I had expected and I loved it. I know that you can get some romance in books and it just doesn't seem natural but in this story I liked how natural that aspect was.
I really did enjoy Shannon Hale's writing style and I will definitely be looking into her other books.
What I was not fond of with this story...
I did have a little bit of trouble getting into this story. When reading the blurb, I expected a lot more of the 'top secret intergalactic conspiracy' than what I found at the beginning of the story. You do find out a lot more as the story goes on but I did find the beginning of the story a bit slow for me.
