Fly to the last drop of fuel. Fight to the last drop of blood.

Showoff. Reckless. Maverick. Chase Harcourt, call sign “Nyx”, isn’t one to play it safe. In the year 2048, America is locked in a cold war – and the country’s best hope is the elite teen fighter pilots of the United Star Academy. Chase is one of only two daredevil pilots chosen to fly an experimental “Streaker” jet. But few know the pain and loneliness of her past. All anyone cares about is that Chase aces the upcoming Streaker trials, proving the prototype jet can knock the enemy out of the sky.

But as the world tilts toward war, Chase cracks open a military secret. There’s a third Streaker, whose young hotshot pilot, Tristan, can match her on the ground and in the clouds. And Chase doesn’t play well with others. But to save her country, she may just have to put her life in the hands of the competition.

Praise for Breaking Sky:
“Strong characterizations, action, adventure, and emotion combine to produce a sci-fi novel that is more than just the sum of its parts.” —School Library Journal STARRED Review.

“The author's storytelling is incredibly cinematic, equally adept at capturing extended flight sequences and Chase's interpersonal struggles. Emotions run high toward the novel's end, and the author isn't afraid to play a bit rough, making this feel less like a novel capitalizing on current trends and more like a great story being told in a very cool way. Smart, exciting, confident—and quite possibly the next Big Thing.”Kirkus Reviews

“McCarthy deploys breath-stopping depictions of high-stakes piloting with enviable ease, and the in-your-face personal confrontations are nearly as taut.” —Publishers Weekly

Breaking Sky ticks all the boxes: Love, war, friendship, action and danger - I was left wanting more, more, more!” —Jessica Shirvington, author of One Past Midnight

“A non-stop thrill ride... will keep you reading at the speed of sound. Breaking Sky is one of the most exciting reads of the year.” —Thomas E. Sniegoski, New York Times bestselling author of The Fallen series

  1. This book seems so good!

    My favorite kick-ass YA heroine has to be Celaena from Throne of Glass!

    1. I can't wait to read this book. I haven't had a chance to read Throne of Glass yet but hopefully soon.

  2. I love the cover to this book! It was what caught my eye first. Set in the future made me get the impression it could be science fiction but it sounds a bit too much of a thriller for that. I am looking forward to your review of it whenever you get round to reading it.
