"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Breaking Sky
Author: Cori McCarthy

Expected Publication: March 3, 2015


Chase Harcourt, call sign "Nyx", is one of only two pilots chosen to fly the experimental "Streaker" jets at the junior Air Force Academy in the year 2048. She's tough and impulsive with lightning-fast reactions, but few know the pain and loneliness of her past or the dark secret about her father. 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 jet, whose young hotshot 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 may just have to put her life in the hands of the competition.

Why I am lurking on this: It's pilots, for crying out loud! After I couldn't get through with Code Name Varity, I'm still on the hunt for a good pilot novel, and I hope to find it in this.

  1. Interesting, why didn't you make it through Code Name Verity? It wasn't my favorite book, but I can't imagine not pushing through just to find out what happened, and what all the damn hype was about that I was hearing from all its fans.

    1. I had a basically not-formatted ARC version, and I couldn't keep up with the scene switches between the times that way, it gave me a very bad headache, and it was so detailled it was like reading slow motion... I have been getting alot of evil looks for DNFing, making me think I should give it another go. ^^

    1. Haha, jup I'm a very German blogger, I even have second book blog in German, and I have read Kapitän Blaubär which is so crazy it's awesome. 😉 Welcome! =)
