This book was not what I was expecting. It came off as a book speaking of tradition, about passing on the concept of generational story telling. Then it took a turn into sci-fi. Petra (Zeta 1) travels to a new planet when Earth becomes uninhabitable. The books takes many twist and turns.

I wish the scientific concepts and storylines/conflict had been more developed and logical. The ending was abrupt and confusing which is super annoying.

There are so many loose ends and unfinished parts to this story. I think the premise is cool, and it has important themes. There was so much potential for a really great story, but it’s just okay.

I’m not a huge fan of sci fi but it was well written. Feels like there needed to be more or maybe another book.
