Dystopia Week Giveaway: Be the first to read and discuss Glow, by Amy Kathleen Ryan

What would Dystopia Week be without a chance to catch a glimpse of the future? Glow, the debut novel in Amy Kathleen Ryan’s new young adult series, The Sky Chasers, envisions a world in which humanity has fled a dying Earth in order to colonize a new planet. All is not well on the two massive ships bound for New Earth, however, as the first generation of space-born colonists finds itself caught between warring factions. Through the eyes of its teenaged protagonist, Waverly Marshall, Glow introduces us to a world of infinitely complex characters and twisting allegiances, warped by the conflicts between religious piety and individual freedom, personal belief and communal responsibility—a world in which the fight for survival threatens to replace love, and even free will….

Of course, every dystopian future has its bright side: we’re giving away 100 advance copies of Glow, and we want to hear what you think! Although the novel won’t be available until September, 2011, St. Martin’s Press is looking for advance readers: the first 100 people to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with their mailing address will receive an advance copy of the book (offer limited to the United States and Canada only, at this time). We’d also like to encourage everyone who reads Glow to email a short, 2-3 sentence response to this address, and let us know how you would rate it on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest)—we look forward to hearing your thoughts and reactions!

More about Glow:

Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth’s collapse, the ship’s crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader’s efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don’t know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them…

Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager–until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he’s the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth.

But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren’t all from the outside.

Glow is the most riveting series debut since The Hunger Games, and promises to thrill and challenge readers of all ages.
