One of those chance finds on Amazon. A link followed rather than ignored. In some ways it looks like yet another dystopia + YA female lead. What sets it apart in the first 4 chapters is the quality of writing.
I can't see it suddenly changing gear to high-speed action, either. Wherever the journey leads, it will be slower-paced, mood-driven.
I'm impressed enough already that I've added it to the SFWA Nebula suggested reading list. I hope on several levels I don't come to regret that.
