I received an e-book version of this book through a giveaway on LibraryThing in return for an honest review.

The disparity between the haves and have nots which exists on the massive spaceship Eden didn’t happen overnight, it occurred over the five millenniums it has been wandering space. It occurred because of the lack of a central entity/individual to oversee the entire operation of for the last hope for the survival of the human race.

Society has devolved from its democratic state to a state where Arc and the Human Council ruled and all dissidents got banished to a life of destitution from a realm where luxury endures.

It’s only when the book’s main character, the Harbinger, is found deep in the bowels of the Under where the dissidents are forced to eke out their existence. Harbinger has no recollection of who he is or any knowledge for/of his reason for being. But with the aid of the rebel Leema and others, the destiny of all those aboard the Eden can be returned to its original intention by destroying the current status quo.

While the writing could use some tweaking, the writing itself makes for a enjoyable page turning read with the vivid mental pictures it creates, as well as for the development of the book’s characters. The book is one that is multi-genre which is appealing to a broader range of potential readers; sci-fi, romance, adventure and societal life, than a single genre of sci-fi.

With all things considered I’m happy to give this book 4 STARS.
