I'm not usually a fan of science fiction, but I really enjoyed this book. I was amazed at the detailed world the author invented and the different (and warring) communities that resided there. The characters were so real, and it was interesting seeing the world through each one's eyes. I was impressed, confused, intrigued....and just had to keep reading to find out what would happen next.
