Thanks for the review. It sci-fi can be just so boring at times so it is refreshing to know that the fantasy in the book makes for a great read. I love the thought characters being developed into a great story with a sci-fi vibe.

Thanks for the review.I will is on this one though, too many books to read and, although I like Sci-fi, I'm not into YA. It looks interesting for those who like the genre though.

I have never been a fan of sci fi books, movies are ok because it is more visual. That said, this book sounds like it is character driven and if this is your cup of tea, then it sounds good. Good review helps tell the reader what it is about. Well done!

Fantasy is not usually a genre I am interested in. However, after reading the review I think I might really like this. I've downloaded it on Kindle.

Congratulations to the

Congratulations to the BOTD and the interesting review. I still did not get it why the book is titled after the name of a boat. It must be where everything had happened. Need to read the book.
