Human kind in two nutshells, The New Horizon and The Empyrean on a quest to find New Earth. The good, the bad , the worst and hopefully the best of all of humankind is on board.
On the second book of The Sky Chasers Trilogy the chances of completing their mission are slim since both crews have decided to act out of revenge and thirst for power. If the cattle and forests on board both ships were controlled by brainless robots they would probably make it to New Earth on time.Unfortunately the children and teenagers are paying for the sins of their parents and becoming like them in many ways as well.
To make matters worse both ship leaders use the word of their god to keep people content and justify their actions, and it seems to work well, at least for a while.
The author depicts a society which is not very different from the one they left of Earth and even it feels like history is repeating itself I think there is some hope . The characters are evolving towards understanding the importance of the mission and I hope that good will triumph over evil in the end.
I can't wait to read the third book.
