A full throated defence of blind faith
but seriously this is so one dimensional its stupid. It starts off somewhat promising but it becomes pretty clear that what the author was trying to do here was promote a very specific view of the world. Brandon Sanderson said it best in The Way of Kings: "the role of a storyteller is not to tell you what to think, but to give you questions to think about." This is not that. It is very clearly telling you what to think, and bluntly. World building is very formulaic and in a way that feels like the author was just doing a scifi checkbox thing. A huge disappointment.

Supposedly nice premise obscured by whining hero
