    • Abstract:
      Summary: When Jo steps onto planet Tau Ceti E, it should be the happiest moment of her life. After all, she's been training ever since she can remember to be a cadet pilot in the International Space Agency. She's dreamed of the day she and her family would leave Earth forever and begin life as pioneers on a new planet. But now she can't stop thinking of everything that has gone wrong on their mission: the terrible accident that almost destroyed their craft, that set their voyage back years, that killed her brother, that left her unable to fly... As she helps her commander mother establish a community, she starts to feel like her old self again, and she remembers what it means to be a pioneer. That is, until she uncovers a devastating secret her mother has been keeping from her people. With the fate of the pioneers in her hands, Jo must decide how far she's willing to go to expose the truth -- before the truth destroys them all.

Booklist Reviews 2018 December #1

Joanna "Jo" Watson has spent her whole life preparing to pilot humanity's first mission to settle an uninhabited planet. When disaster strikes before the settlers even leave Earth's orbit, Jo manages to save the ship at a terrible cost. Permanently banished from the pilot's chair because of her life-changing injuries, she tries to make herself useful on the new planet, while watching her friends excel in the roles they trained for. But none of them was trained to encounter sentient life-forms on a supposedly unpopulated planet. When a shuttle crashes outside the camp, the teens discover an intelligent species called the Sorrow living trapped beneath the planet's surface, while monstrous predators called phytoraptors rule aboveground. Debut novelist Tyler is a veteran writer for television, and that proficiency shows itself in briskly paced action, lively dialogue, and a vividly imagined world. Heavier on suspense than psychological depth, this is a solidly entertaining sf novel with a strong-willed heroine. An unexpected cliff-hanger raises the stakes for future installments. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Fall

After landing with an exploration and pioneering team on Tau Ceti e, a planet that the International Space Agency deemed uninhabited, seventeen-year-old Joanna Watson encounters two sentient extraterrestrial species. With snappy pacing and detailed world-building, Tyler has crafted a twisty-turny space opera that raises thought-provoking questions about colonization, environmentalism, and the consequences of actions--personally and globally.
