Hoping for a Sequel!

The Sky Drifter is a large space ship making its way through the vast galaxy. On board the Sky Drifter, the residences are named by number and have established their own town, school, and community. The Sky Drifter is home to many different species that coexist, including Seven, the only human on the ship. Seven and the rest of the younger passengers attend The Academy, the ship’s school that teaches everything from cooking to math to strategy.

Seven spends his days attending classes, hanging out with Iris and Pi, and playing Sphere (“one on one dodge ball on steroids” if you may). He is content with his life until he notices another human like himself.  He looks for the girl while his two best friends think he’s crazy. What follows is a series of events that makes Seven realize that not everything is as it seems.

I haven’t read a really good sci-fi in a while, so this one was really satisfying. It has space exploration, variety of characters, and good ole classic high school issues.

The book gives a flash of the future at the beginning and I found it very confusing as I started to read it. The opening scene is action packed and it led to my mind trying to imagine all possibilities of how this book will build up, which was a very strong way to open the novel, in my opinion.
The majority of the novel focuses on the reader following Seven as he deals with the norms of high school. It’s almost uneventful, but I actually enjoyed it. And then we have the nice surprise of an action packed ending that I didn’t see coming!

I’m definitely hoping for a sequel!

The Sky Drifter by Paris Singer receives 3.5 stars.
