Jax Starlight is the hero(ine) in this story. An orphan barreling through space on a spaceship filled with the last of the Earthlings, she does whatever job she can to survive until they can find an inhabitable planet. Of course, she wasn't planning on crash landing or growing stronger with each passing day.
With only a few humans surviving and paranoid inhabitants (rightly so--to find out why, you'll need to read the book), Jax and her friends must learn to rely on their new friends and control their powers.
I hope Ms. Nixon continues with this series. I want to know how Jax learns to cope and what happens next.
This story serves as the prologue/origin to the series, introducing the "Earth Ten", the last survivors of humankind. Their ship crashes on the alien world of Corova, and they must navigate some tricky diplomacy with the inhabitants of that world, an advanced civilization with technology a bit behind that of the earthlings, and with a complex set of laws and customs.
Jax, a laborer aboard the exodus ship, finds herself in the midst of conflict with her fellow survivors as well, as the humans begin to split into factions representing the upper and lower class passengers.
Add to that Jax's rapidly developing superpowers, and a whole potential comic book universe awaits.
Jax herself is smart and capable when she needs to be. She's well aware of the fictional tropes of what she finds herself becoming, and greets it all with a mix of cynicism and terror, but she clearly has the heart for the hero role, and it will be fun watching her grow into that.
The science fiction elements and worldbuilding work nicely, and the hints of superhero action are intriguing. This is a really effective start, and I look forward to reading more.
