To save her country, Chase must put everything on the line. Including her pride. And her heart.
Chase Harcourt, call sign "Nyx," isn't one to play it safe. In 2048, America is locked in the second 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. All anyone cares about is that Chase aces the upcoming Streaker trails, proving the prototype jet can knock the enemy out of the sky. Only few know the pain and loneliness of her past.
As the world tilts toward war, Chase discovers a military secret. There's a third Streaker, and its young pilot, Tristan, can match her on the ground and in the clouds. Chase doesn't play well with others, but to save her country, she'll have to put her life in the hands of the competition.
Breaking Sky is a gritty coming-of-age tale with tons of action, a fascinating dystopian society, humor, friendship, romance, and heart-stopping, high-stakes flying that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
