Publisher's Summary

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 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 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.

    "Amazing! Treat yourself to this."

    This is a killer, fast pace story of love and war and death and family. Cori takes you in the ride in the air you've been waiting for.

    "Not my cup of tea."

    Too much teenage angst and not enough action. Nice enough but I'm just the wrong audience for this kind of book.

    Have you listened to any of Caitlin Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Caitlin's performance was great, it was the story that was lacking. I liked the idea, but it was too heart throby (yes, i know that's not a word).


    Was Breaking Sky worth the listening time?

    i was bored, so yes, but no.

    Story
    "Dystopian YA Top Gun"

    It loses points with me for blatantly lifting the plot from a Tom Cruise movie. Granted, it was a good one, and this author pulls it off well enough that I cried for "Goose", but I don't know that I can forgive the whole Top Gun thing. Great execution of the stolen plot, great world building, awesome Starbuck-swap. But no top less, sweaty volleyball game.

    Story
    "Not bad, but knowledge of physics is lacking"

    I enjoyed the story and characters, however the lack of knowledge about how planes actually fly was distracting when the author mentioned them touching wings at high speed as being playful it's disturbing when you know in real life that would be a major disaster probably ending in death.

    Story
    "geared more for YA but good story. "

    over all it was a good story. a bit under-technical for real aviation enthusiast. author has limited aerodynamic/aviation knowledge even though tried using aviation "buzzwords" .

    "Decent teen heartthrob..... If that's what your in"

    The reader really needs to use her "t's". Somewhat distracting.....

    Story
    "Slow and simple."

    Very slow.
    Needs more to the story. It's predictable to a fault. Author opens the book up for a sequel.
