Patina Kindle Edition
The planet called Earth was dying... Five nations formed a coalition to save the species. Constructed entirely in space, an enormous ship was built. One mile long, the thin cylindrical vessel was intended to transport two thousand genetically diverse passengers to a faraway destination.

While it does have some serious potential, it's also just a great short read on its own.
Pick it up, you won't regret it!
The story is highly reminiscent of Kindle Worlds stories set in Hugh Howey's Silo Saga. Perhaps knowing before reading that Mr. Kent considered publishing it as a Silo Saga story prompted me to look for comparisons, but some of them are too hard to ignore. While the structure of the ship lends itself to the comparison, it stands well as its own tale. The story does its job. It's a great read, a compelling world and leaves me wanting more.
