“Fresh.” –Los Angeles Times
“Exhilarating…a rollercoaster of a reading experience.” –The Nerd Daily
Explosive action and swoon-worthy suspense collide in Steelstriker, the riveting conclusion to Marie Lu’s instant New York Times bestseller Skyhunter.
The world’s last free nation has fallen. And behind enemy lines, Talin stands alone.
With her friends scattered by combat and her mother held captive, Talin has no choice but to submit to the Federation’s experiments and become their most deadly war machine—a Skyhunter.
But Red hasn’t given up on Talin. Though the link between them is weak, it could be enough. To find their way back to each other. To reunite the Strikers. To fight back against the Federation, against all odds, against all hope.
Because the battle has only just begun.
