This was another book that was just fun. Meagan and Amie are so good at coming up with interesting ways to keep the story moving (in this case it has to do with oxygen). I'm pretty picky when it comes to books about archaeologists, but I felt like they covered both sides of the "Lara Croft meets Indiana Jones...in space!" pitch (though: the Lara Croft character is poor and the Indiana Jones character has never been out in the field before, so, you know, no pitch is perfect).

If there's a downside, it's that one of the trademarks of a Spooner-Kaufman story is very, very tight POV. There are really only two characters in the book (the side characters show up and do stuff, but they don't get a tonne of development). This doesn't bother me at all, but if you're after a good ensemble story, this isn't really it.

ANYWAY. I ended up blurbing it, so obviously my good feelings about it are strong. :)
