William was my favorite character. I love when characters pop in from other books and William's reappearance was great! His storyline is fascinating so I was rooting for him from the beginning.

I really took a liking to little Sarah. :) She was so spunky and good-hearted! I also really enjoyed William’s character, how he always kept a level head. My third favorite character would be Larry. I loved his devotion to his wife even though she was giving him such a hard time, and how capable and brave he was even in the face of his horrible injury.

William was my favorite character. I was on pin and needles at the end, hoping he would survive the cold. He kept his team working together in some really tough times. That's invaluable in the situation they were in. The way he cared about others was a great part of his character.

I was inspired by Louise. She was a brave and interesting character.

The seal....🤔, it all came down to the energy they received from eating that seal. It made all the difference. Whichever way this story is told, it will always hinge on that mament.

I liked all the female characters. Flawed they may be, yet attractive.

Steve is my favorite character because of the critical decisions he made to rescue his crew team during the fire outbreak.

There are so many good characters here, that it's difficult to choose a favourite. This is partly because of the mastery with which Mr. Sheldon brings them to life. However, if I had to choose it would be William for the great leadership skills, the caring nature and the fact that he never gave up even when the situation got desperate. He kept the survivors alive.

My favorite character is Steve. He was very strong and caring captain, who was concerned with the status of his crew members. He could not settle down until each member was accounted for, dead or alive. He was a father of a disabled son and worked so hard to provide for him against all odds.

Myna was my favorite character. She was put in a difficult position. On one hand her father was on the abandon vessel and she didn't know if he had survived; and on the other hand she was responsible to write a report for the city counsel to decide if the large company was going to get approval for a mining operation.

I usually do not choose favorite characters since all of them have their own ups and downs, as well as contributions to the on going of the novel
