9780060850579: Starclimber (Matt Cruse)

"Mr. Cruse, how high would you like to fly?"

A smile soared across my face.

"As high as I possibly can."

Pilot-in-training Matt Cruse and Kate de Vries, expert on high-altitude life-forms, are invited aboard the Starclimber, a vessel that literally climbs its way into the cosmos. Before they even set foot aboard the ship, catastrophe strikes:

Kate announces she is engaged—and not to Matt.

Despite this bombshell, Matt and Kate embark on their journey into space, but soon the ship is surrounded by strange and unsettling life-forms, and the crew is forced to combat devastating mechanical failure. For Matt, Kate, and the entire crew of the Starclimber, what began as an exciting race to the stars has now turned into a battle to save their lives.

Award-winning and bestselling author Kenneth Oppel brings us back to a rich world of flight and fantasy in this breathtaking new sequel to Airborn and Skybreaker.

From AudioFile:

The action never stops in this hair-raising adventure. This time Matt and Kate are on a trip to outer space. Even those who haven't listened to the first two books, AIRBORN and SKYBREAKER, will become entranced by the likable and quirky characters. David Kelly creates a sympathetic portrayal as student pilot Matt struggles to prove his mettle and hold on to his girlfriend Kate's affection. There's never a dull moment as he describes his daredevil maneuvers and the strange sights of the upper atmosphere. Voices for phlegmatic scientist Dr. Turgenev, buffoon Sir Hugh, and the other space voyagers add depth to the performance. The combination of a great story and distinctive narrations makes this selection a "don't miss." C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
