I am a big fan of Shannon Hale and in fact emailed her a request for this book to be offered on audible two weeks before it popped up. I love it when I can do that!
This book is very different from her other novels. I am used to her flowing, poetic language and more of a slow build to her plots, so at first I felt like this book was rushed. But as it continued, I realized it was just very straight forward.
I love the protagonist. She is smart and witty and brave and vulnerable and all around fantastic. My only wish is that it was longer. Hopefully she will return to this world and we can follow them through more adventures.

Shannon Hale is my favorite author. I was NOT expecting a book like this from her - but that's not a bad thing. Sci-fi isn't exactly my cup of tea, but for those who love it you should definitely read/listen to this book. My only real experience with sci fi was when I watched Firefly in college, and this gave me similar feelings: intensity, unexpected plot twists, fear, extravagant ideas, and freaky aliens that give me nightmares. But man she wrote this book well, and I LOVE the unique main character!!! From beginning to end I kept having moments like "WHAT???!" the only predictable part was the VERY end. But you have all the pieces by then and I'm glad it turned out how I wanted it to :) Thank you Shannon Hale for the exciting new super hero!
