Break the Sky – by Karen Harris Tully
(based on Jack and the Beanstalk)
Years after an apocalyptic attack radiated planet Epiphany, pick-pocket Jakarta “Jak” Moon wants nothing more than to protect her younger brother—and survive. But when an old ally steals her last prized possession, Jak is out of options. Desperate, she breaks into the Tower, the home of Epiphany’s winged-dictator, the Godmother, and ends up on a dangerous mission—to climb the enormous elevator and retrieve the last working transport to the giant space stations in orbit. If successful, the Godmother promises Jak one life-changing wish, a wish Jak is determined to win or die trying.
Forced to team up with Gill Cuvier, the hunky crush she’s not sure she can trust, Jak ascends the elevator three times, each with a mission more dangerous than the last. Can Jak and Gill retrieve the treasures the Godmother demands, discover the secret of the Golden Eggs, and protect their planet from an evil, time-travelling scientist? Can they learn to trust the love they’ve found to escape the giant space station and certain death? Or is that all too much for a pick-pocket to ask?
