It's a strange mixture of city of ember and hunger games.
I will simply leave this point: the science behind the environmental setup was the stuff of shock-umentaries and not science reality. (A planet does not coast to a stop over a few hundred years ... there is a LOT of mechanical energy that has to be removed from the system somehow... a LOT of it... and that would most likely become thermal energy. The result would be a complete slagging of the Earth’s surface, leaving no survivors at all.)
Now, this is not to say that the story (as far as I managed to get), wasn’t a reasonably engaging idea. I liked the dystopian aspects, and the cultural challenges presented in an isolated survival group living for hundreds of years in a giant ark. Although the characters seemed a bit undefined to me, and some of their reactions felt implausible, there may have been underlying reasons for their behavior that I simply had not discovered in as far as I got through the story.
I am sure the author had some reason for setting the story on a destroyed Earth, however I think the idea would have developed much more realistically if it had been set on a planet that was tidally-locked to begin with, rather than burying the idea in a fantasy of wishful-thinking science.
I will leave this review in neither negative or positive territory, but in all honesty I do not think I could wade my way through it (or the sequel/prequel) trying to dig out any justification for the improbability of the setup.
The beginning of the novel starts with a little bit of an ‘info dump’ about the world, but this only lasts a page or two before the action starts. The world of Aeon Infinitum is certainly well thought-out and vividly unique, and I give props to the author for this, but a few less paragraphs of information about the setting would have quickened up the pace.
All in all, though, this book is masterfully written, the plot is fascinating and it, plus the world the characters are in, all draw the reader in. Descriptive writing is well-employed here, and I find this book to be a great read! I definitely want to see what the other books by E. Rachael Hardcastle have to offer.
