Description

If a violent battle destroyed the only world you've ever known, would you be brave enough to save who was left? Would love be strong enough to survive the fight? Either way, there's no turning back...

The Empyrean is the only home 15-year-old Waverly has ever known. As members of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space, she and her boyfriend Kieran will be pioneers of New Earth. Waverly knows she must marry young in order to have children who can carry on the mission, and Kieran, the handsome captain-to-be, has everything Waverly could want in a husband. But there's a part of Waverly that wants more from life than marriage... and she is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth.

Suddenly, Waverly's dreams are interrupted by the inconceivable - a violent betrayal by the Empyrean's sister ship, the New Horizon. In one pivotal moment, Waverly and Kieran are separated, and find themselves at the helm of dangerous missions, where every move has potentially devastating consequences, and decisions of the heart may lead to disaster.

Pulse-pounding and addictive, Glow is the first novel in Amy Kathleen Ryan's riveting Sky Chasers series.

Review quote

"Utterly engrossing. Dinner went uncooked, children were left to fend for themselves, and the dog howled all night, because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN." --Lauren Myracle, New York Times bestselling author of Shine

"Glow captivated me from start to finish. The action-packed narrative and the characters' struggle to survive without losing their humanity make for a compelling read." --Alexandra Adornetto, New York Times bestselling author of Halo

"GLOW has an ingenious, twisty, heart-stopping plot, and characters that are in turn both sympathetic and sinister all the way to the last page - I don't know who I can trust, and I love it!" --Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of the Wake trilogy

"Ryan has created a fascinating and thrilling story that is sure to captivate teens... [with] a unique and vivid outer-space setting that is exciting and easy to imagine. This gripping first installment is difficult to put down, and successfully sets the stage for the rest of the series." --School Library Journal (starred)

"This swift-moving epic is filled with plot twists and enigmatic characters... Fans of the Hunger Games series will zip through and clamor for the next installment." --Booklist

"By the end, you'll be desperate for the sequel. [Ryan] throws together a host of moral issues and then launches them into outer space! I'm looking forward to the next book..." --RT Book Reviews

"Our favorite part: You're never quite sure who to trust in this book. Each character has, at the very least, dual motives, which makes for a super-exciting plot...You'll love it if you love futuristic post-apocalyptic stories, like The Hunger Games!" --Seventeen.com

"No less than the fate of humanity is at stake in Amy Kathleen Ryan's rich and emotional sci-fi tale... an entertaining read featuring hairy action sequences and a female antagonist on par with the literary likes of Nurse Ratched and Dolores Umbridge." --USA Today

"Waverly's self-reliance, determination, and inner strength make her a heroine to remember." --Publishers Weekly
