NIGHT SPEED cover art
“Full of high-octane action and gut-punching emotion, Night Speed will make your heart race, break it into a million pieces, and then put it back together again.” (Kass Morgan, New York Times bestselling author of The 100)
“Tighten up that seatbelt, kids, because Chris Howard has his foot on the pedal and doesn’t let up, from page one to the end. This is superpower made real, made consequential, with characters you care about and a story that is pure adrenaline. An absolute must-read.” (Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of the Gone series)
Only those young enough can survive the pulse-pounding rush of tetra, a dangerous new drug that fuels a nine-minute burst of superhuman strength and speed. Tetra is addictive. It’s hard on the body and hard to control. But Alana West has been trained to use the drug so she can pursue the young criminals who abuse its power—criminals like the breakneck who nearly killed her kid brother.
On tetra, Alana is unstoppable. The rush makes her an explosive blur as she surges through New York City, battling to bring down breaknecks before they leave more people dead or injured in their wake. But with the clock ticking down to her eighteenth birthday, Alana will soon be too old for the rush… then just one more dose will prove deadly.
Supported only by her strong and steady handler, Tucker, Alana goes undercover, infiltrating an elite gang of breaknecks to locate their source of the drug and end the supply. But when Alana gets trapped on the wrong side of the law, she learns the breaknecks are not quite what they seem—especially Ethan, the artistic boy whose bottomless brown eyes seem to see the truth inside her. And with her own dependency on tetra increasing, Alana must decide where her loyalties lie before the rush ends. Forever.
