An action-packed narrative that is utterly compelling and characters you will really love. The world as we know it is crumbling and has been for years; this is the story of a group who left earth aboard a space ship, which has become their home. Now 16 years on, two of them, born on the spaceship, have fallen in love.

Synopsis

Skychasers : Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan

The ship is their entire world. They have never seen a stranger before. Old Earth is crumbling, and the crew is hoping to reach (and colonise) New Earth within fifty years. Along with their allies on the second spaceship - who set off a year before them and whom they have never met. One day, Kieran proposes to Waverly. That same morning, the 'allies' attack - and Kieran and Waverly are separated in the cruellest way possible. Will they ever see each other again?

Reviews

* A School Library Journal Best Book of 2011 * Praise for Glow

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 antagon
