“Waverly and Kieran are the oldest of their generation on board the Empyrean, one of two starships on a mission to colonize New Earth. The two teens seem destined to marry and become future leaders of the mission, but their peaceful world is shaken to the core when their sister ship, the New Horizon, makes an unprovoked attack, during which every young girl on board is kidnapped and their ship is left crippled. Waverly and Kieran are forced to make choices that will affect not only their own futures but that of the mission and everyone involved. This is a gripping novel with twists and turns that will leave readers eager for the next installment of this planned trilogy.”

Description

"If a violent battle destroyed the only world you've ever known, would you be brave enough to save who was left? Would love be strong enough to survive the fight? Either way, there's no turning back..."
The Empyrean is the only home 15-year-old Waverly has ever known. As members 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 who can carry on 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.

Pulse-pounding and addictive, "Glow" is the first novel in Amy Kathleen Ryan's riveting Sky Chasers series.
