My darling daughter,
Know that I never would have left the Earth if it hadn't already been doomed. . .
generation ship Asherah coasts through space, bound for a planet its
passengers have never even seen. On the eve of their arrival,
sixteen-year-old botanist Terra discovers that her orderly society has
fractured. Walking home one night through the long-abandoned engine
rooms, she witnesses the murder of an innocent man. Now, called on by
the Children of Abel, a group of rebels intent on destroying the High
Council, Terra must prove her mettle--assassinate the ship's rising
captain. In order to carry out her task, Terra must betray her father,
deceive her teacher, and challenge everything the Council has ever
taught her was true.
The rebels think that Terra has nothing
left to lose. But when she falls for Silvan Rafferty, the boy that she's
meant to kill, Terra learns that "doing your duty" isn't always as easy
as it seems.
This book sounds so fantastic. I'm so happy to see a lot more of sci-fi in YA these days! Also, this probably one of my favorite covers of 2013 that I've seen so far - it's absolutely gorgeous.
