Chapter 1 is well thought out and very organized. The author lays the chapter out well wit all of the events happening one after the other. This is good because some writers write in the present and then write in the past and write to the present. It is very confusing on when things happen in relation to each other. The main character is Rayford Steele, just like in the first book. He is challenged with a new c-pilot and his involvement with the Tribulation Force.
