From the hottest action author on the planet, now comes the fastest story ever told ...Imagine twenty fighter jets racing around twisting, turning aerial track, ducking and weaving and overtaking at insanely high speeds, and you've just imagined a hover car race. In the world of the near future, man travels everywhere in vehicles that hover four feet above the ground. Inevitably this brilliant new technology has inspired the latest super-fast, competitive sport of hover car racing, whose feted superstars inhabit a glamorous world of wealth, celebrity and extreme danger. They are the hottest ticket in town. This is the story of Jason Chaser, a young newcomer from the Australian outback, as he battles for the respect and recognition he can only gain in the international circuits through his courage and death-defying exploits on the track. less
"F1 meets Quidditch" is how it's billed, but that doesn't come close. You know when you watch an amazing action scene in a movie and it properly gets your heart racing? This guy can manage that in print, and then some.
Absolutely brilliant. Like every other Matthew Riley book, difficult to tear yourself away from and fast-paced non-stop action from the start to the finish-line. It reads like a movie. It's well thought out. A good story regardless of age.
