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.

This book made me fear space. I have always found space to be interesting. I loved the magic of endlessness and stars and planets. Reading this book brought out the scary dark side of space, the side where technology fails and the fragility of humanity is exposed. It's a wonderful read, but it also opens your eyes to the endless horrors and terror of space.

Not quite as good as the first two, but I found the ending fairly satisfying, and the alternate-universe idea of what could be in space was very interesting.
