Sky Chasers #1: Glow

The book reminds me of Across The Universe and Wither. I would love to see what happens in the next book! It’s pretty good. I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads. 

What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you’d been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue?
Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth’s collapse, the ship’s crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader’s efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don’t know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them…
Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager—until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he’s the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth. 

But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren’t all from the outside.

Across The Universe…because the story takes place in space as well and people are living in a huge spaceship where there’s one in charge. There’s a girl who doesn’t trust the leader of the ship or anyone on board. Everyone is under control of a powerful leader.

The other book is Wither. This one is not space fiction or anything like that. It’s not fantasy either but dystopian. It’s a whole new world in this book. Girls can live till 18 i think and boys, 20. The main character is a girl who was kidnapped and was chosen to be married to a high class already-married man against her will. The world was running out children because of disease when you turn the age of 18 and 21 and so girls have be married at the least of 13 were girls are already fertile to bear children.

The two books, you mix together and you’ll have the idea of what’s the book all about. Well, at least it’s close to these two books’ story.

Gosh….i really like Kieran Alden in the book!! He is a new leader. One that has a good heart for people aboard Empyrean. There was a quite of a twist about it… and Seth. I get him now.

Glow started good. Really good. It was a thrill ride! The epilogue really was a cliffhanger! Dangit! When’s the next book gotta come out?? I can’t wait!!
