You live in Eden. You are a member of the Family, one of 532 descendants of Angela and Tommy. You shelter beneath the Forest’s lantern trees. Beyond the forest lie mountains so forbidding that no one has ever crossed them. The Oldest recount legends of a time when men and women made boats that could travel between worlds. One day, they will come back for you. You huddle, slowly starving, in the warmth of geothermal trees, confined to one barely habitable valley of an alien, sunless world – and wait.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Though I am not usually reading books such as these I certainly enjoyed finding out the atmosphere of those types of books. It was a well written book and I rate it five stars*****
This book has exceptional writing but also quite a dark side to it. Though it was a pleasure to read. I would probably recommend it for the age range of 11-15 considering the plot. But overall I think the book was a huge success and I hope there’s a sequel!
I am not a great fan of dystopia, but this book kept me gripped. John Redlantern is the hero prepared to questions the existing status quo that everyone is one of 532 descendants from Angela and Tommy and there is no world beyond the Forest. The forefathers tell how they will be rescued from people coming from planet Earth. The environment is a powerful influence on the way of life, but is the Dark quite what it seems….
