Description-

  • In this high-flying, adrenaline-fueled thriller, America's best hope is the elite teen fighter pilots of the United Star Academy.

    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 ace 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 just may have to put her life in the hands of the competition.

    Cori McCarthy's taut, romantic action-adventure will shoot your pulse straight into overdrive with her brilliantly imagined and frighteningly possible future.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    January 5, 2015
    Chase Harcourt is “an excellent pilot. And, if she was being honest, kind of a crappy person.” Arrogant, impulsive, confrontational, and competitive, her promiscuity and brashness are bywords in the rec room of the Air Force’s United Star Academy, where she is the favorite cadet of the commanding officer, General Kale. (Fans of the Battlestar Galactica reboot will see more than a little Starbuck in Chase.) With her brilliant crewman Pippin, Chase flies the Dragon, an experimental Streaker jet and America’s fragile hope of countering the threat of the world’s only superpower, Ri Xiong Di. Only two Streakers exist—until Chase encounters a third one that no one in command will admit to. World War III and the pilot trials loom, but Chase focuses on one thing: proving that the third plane is out there. McCarthy (The Color of Rain) deploys breath-stopping depictions of high-stakes piloting with enviable ease, and the in-your-face personal confrontations are nearly as taut. Both will keep readers glued to the page. Ages 14–up. Agent: Sarah Davies, Greenhouse Literary Agency.
