Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Genre: Science Fiction
“Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space and she and her boyfriend, Kieran, will be pioneers of New Earth. Waverly 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. Still, there’s apart of Waverly that 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 shop, the New Horizon. The New Horizon’s leaders are desperate to populate the new planet first and will do anything to get what they need: young girls. In one pivotal moment, Waverly and Kieran are separated, and they find themselves at the helms of dangerous missions, where every move has potentially devastating consequences and decisions of the heart may lead to disaster.”
This series is slow moving and may be a little confusing at first but once everything is explained, the plot thickens and the unexpected twists and turns will leave your heart beating wildly in anticipation. It’s not one of my top ten, but it’s a good read and something new. There are three books in The Sky Chasers series.
