Amy Rose Capetta's debut novel is intensely smart—full of heart-stopping action, a wide cast of eccentric and lovable characters, and plenty of sneaky humor. Cade's universe is vividly drawn through a fantastic use of language, rhythm, and beat and populated with a wide array of imaginative characters—human and otherwise. Cade is resourceful and a quick thinker, but interacting with others is not her strong suit, and her growth is sometimes awkward, but rewarding and triumphant as Cade ultimately discovers her purpose in the vast universe. The action and mystery of the novel are drawn out well, and balanced with each characters' own pasts and motivations, and readers will care about Rennik, Lee, Ayumi, and their living ship Renna as much as they care for Cade. Capetta throws in a few twists that leave readers with a nicely unexpected conclusion, thrumming with life and a universe full of possibility for every member of the unlikely and entertaining crew.
Cover Comments: This cover has changed a little bit since I revealed it earlier this year, but I really, really like the changes. The blue is a really cool shade, and I love the little details of the stars and the guitar in the title. The way that everything seems to be sucked into a black hole is also awesome, seeing as black holes are definitely important to the story. It's very cool and science fiction-esque--great cover!
Entangled will be available October 1st, 2013. A sequel is forthcoming!
