I had been wanting to read this book ever since I found out about it during #WeLoveOurAuthors promotion prior to its release, and it did not disappoint. I was drawn in by the idea of a young woman searching to find out what happened to her missing family members in a story that incorporated spaceships, conspiracies, alien creatures and psychic abilities. It was fascinating to read about how the EASA had utilised psychics to help find habitable worlds and to determine certain actions. But at heart this story was about one woman's quest for the truth in the face of escalating danger.
Britta, is the most accurate psychic to enter EASA. She didn't want to go there, but it is the place that gives her the best chance of finding out what happened to her missing family members. The EASA is a strict and at times terrifying taskmaster, but because of the strength of her abilities Britta is able to maintain her unique identity. I loved that she was a splash of colour in the otherwise stark environment, and that she remained true to herself as she sought to strengthen and control her abilities. The hints and portents she receives are disturbing even as they highlight the conflict that is brewing for Britta and those she cares about.
With disaster looming, Britta must trust in her abilities and her allies to have any hope of breaking free from the conspiracy that surrounds her. There were parts that made me smile, parts that made me sad, all packaged within a tense and exciting story that had me tearing through the pages. I read this book in one day, as I did not want to put it down. I also did not want it to end and would love to read more about Britta and her adventures.
