In this high-flying, adrenaline-fueled debut thriller, America's best hope is the elite teen fighter pilots of the United Star Academy
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.

Thank you NetGalley for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Breaking Sky is the new dystopia to look forward to read on 2015. I'm so glad I have read this one though it took me a while to finish this because of some unfamiliar terms used in this book. I absolutely love the aeronautic concept in this story. It's exciting, thrilling, just imagining yourself in a fighting jet.. it's an adrenaline rush.
Chase "Nyx" Harcourt is one of the two star pilots to fly an experimental streaker jets against the Red Drones from Ri Xiong Di. Her character is really fascinating, she might be annoying at times but she is one badass lady pilot. She's tough, brave, and a risk taker. Absolutely "Team Nyx" All the way! I also love the little romance between her and Tristan. (I love Tristan.. SERIOUSLY) :)
One thing is for sure, I am looking forward to the next installment. I definitely recommended this if you love dystopia novels like Legend trilogy or Under the Never Sky trilogy
