The Polaris Uprising is one of the best science fiction books I've read in a long time. Ryla and Alanna were fascinating characters and I grew to love them both. Ryla is set to inherit the role of President from her father. She is being groomed to follow in his shoes and to make the tough decisions without looking back....but when she finds out the type of decisions her father has been making she has second thoughts. She realizes how opressive her father's rule has been, and what people are being made to give up every day.
Alanna, on the other hand, is there to support her father (and by default her sister), but when the two collide her loyalties will be tested - she will have some of the most difficult decisions to make. In an amazing and dystopian world full of just enough fancy technology to make it new, and just enough humanity to keep you locked into every page I finished this book in record time.
While the book does not end in a cliff hanger - I am eagerly waiting the next one so I can see how everyone's choices will play out.
