I got this book through the Amazon Vine program. I enjoyed this science fiction retelling of Jane Eyre. It was an entertaining and easy read.

Donne does an excellent job of building solid world set in the near future. Humanity is dealing with an ice age that forced them to abandon the surface of Earth and instead orbit Earth in space ships. Many elements in this story are close parallels to the original Jane Eyre story.

I enjoyed the characters as well and thought they had great chemistry. The ending comes off as a bit rushed; but did a good job of tying up all the loose ends and was upbeat.

Overall this was a great read; entertaining and fun to read. I would recommend to fans of YA sci-fi; there are some neat ideas and good world-building in here.
