From the Publisher:

An exhilarating journey to the stars—or a heartbreaking battle for survival?

Pilot-in-training Matt Cruse and his love interest, Kate de Vries, an expert on high-altitude life-forms, are invited aboard the Starclimber, a vessel that literally climbs its way into the cosmos. Matt secretly plans on asking Kate to marry him, but before they even set foot aboard the ship, Kate announces her engagement—to someone else.

Despite this bombshell, and Matt's anguish, they 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.

Annotation:
Once a humble cabin boy and now an actual ship's captain on the Atlas, Matt Cruse is overjoyed to be located in Paris, assisting with the Celestial Tower that will make travel to outer space possible. Frustratingly, sabotage by an anti-space travel group of renegades ruins his chances, but as one door closes, another opens when Matt has the chance to join a Canadian expedition to space. His friend Kate de Vries is on it, and if Matt can make it through a battery of tests, he'll be able to join her and make history. This gripping adventure story began in AIRBORN and SKYBREAKER.

Praise
