ALA Booklist
When 15-year-old Kiva is pulled out of virtual reality, she has a lot to catch up on: she didn't really grow up in ancient Alexandria, but is in deep sleep aboard a spaceship. Meanwhile, her best friend, Seth, isn't really dead (or a prince), just bizarrely unhappy to see her. Earth, she soon learns, no longer exists, and it's up to Seth and Kiva to take an escape shuttle in search of an engine part to keep their ship running and the still-suspended humans aboard it alive. With communication systems down, Seth and Kiva can only hope the other nearby vessels hold passengers that are alive and friendly. Reluctant readers and fans of Jeff Hirsch will come for the Matrix-like premise and stay for the characters' evolving relationship: Kiva isn't pleased that Seth "woke up" three years ago and let her go on living a lie, but that's not all Seth kept from her. Bodeen's latest is a high-stakes page-turner with a tight plot and a cliff-hanger ending that demands a sequel.
Horn Book
When Kiva, who believes she lives in ancient Egyptian times, awakes from that virtual reality, she's shocked to discover herself on a shuttle to retrieve a part for a spaceship--and leading the mission is Seth, the boy she'd thought was the prince of Alexandria. Although the world-building is thin and the author plays fast-and-loose with reader credulity, the emotional drama should please romance fans.

S. A. Bodeen delivers yet another heart-pounding YA thriller in The Tomb , where Kiva and Seth must fight to save what remains of human civilization even as they fight their feelings for each other. Nothing is as it seems . These are the first words Kiva's best friend Seth says, after three years of silence. Kiva thought she was growing up in ancient Alexandria. That's what she and all her classmates had been led to believe by their parents. It turns out she was living in virtual reality, in a sleep chamber in deep space, and three years ago, Seth woke up. Now it's her turn to join him. Together, Kiva and Seth must take an escape shuttle to search for the engine part their home ship needs to keep running. But it's been a long time since the Krakatoa has communicated with any of the other three ships harboring human civilization. Kiva and Seth are not sure what they'll find if and when they finally make contact. Danger, romance and twists you'll never see coming abound in this high-stakes science fiction adventure.
