Description: The Empyrean is the only home fifteen year old Waverly has ever known.  As a member of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space.  She and her boyfriend, Kieran, will be pioneers of New Earth.  Waverly knows she must marry young in order to have children to carry the mission and Kieran, the handsome captain-to-be, has everything Waverly could want in a husband.

But, there’s a part of Waverly that wants more from life than marriage .. and she 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 ship, the New Horizon.  In one, pivotal moment, Waverly and Kieran are separated and find themselves at the helm of dangerous missions, where every move has potentially devastating consequences and decisions of the heart may lead to disaster.

Mandy’s Thoughts: This is a great book, especially for those who like science fiction.  With both the action and romance, boys and girls alike with enjoy reading it.

For the age group, I listed “11+” because it’s a higher reading level.  Not too high, though, just a couple of tricky words here and there.

The book was very appropriate.  The only sexual content in the book is a kiss and there is no swearing.

Glow (Sky Chasers) is very exciting and keeps you wondering.  Whether or not you are a science fiction fan, I recommend reading this book.
