by Kenneth Oppel

This title is now available on MP3-CD from Brilliance Audio for only $17.99. (Please go to Brilliance or to order - we no longer sell directly.)

Matt Cruse is back in the phenomenal third volume in Kenneth Oppel's bestselling, award-winning series - and this time he's heading for outer space.

AIRBORN and SKYBREAKER, the first two books in the series, have been among our bestselling and most-honored titles, and we think you'll find this one just as thrilling - if not more so. Featuring an international cast of larger-than-life characters, this is adventure fiction at its finest.

Behind the Mic: Starclimber

"Steampunk takes to outer space with equal measures of romance and high adventure in a multivoiced production bolstered by stirring music and atmospheric sound effects. . . . The cast milks every ounce of humor out of this fantasy adventure. Especially noteworthy is Daniel Bostick’s hilarious portrayal of mad chef Vlad, a reprisal of his role. A surefire YA favorite, this is most appropriate for family listening."
    — Booklist Jan. 1, 2011
"The action never stops in this hair-raising adventure. This time Matt and Kate are on a trip to outer space. Even those who haven’'t listened to the first two books, AIRBORN and SKYBREAKER, will become entranced by the likable and quirky characters. . . . The combination of a great story and distinctive narrations makes this selection a “don’t miss."

"David Kelly, who has performed on several Full Cast Audio productions, superbly reprises his role as Matt. The other cast members also do an excellent job, making this exciting and engaging to listen to. Sound effects and music are well-placed and seamless. The recording has something for everyone: thrilling adventure, light romance, and plenty of humorous moments. Highly recommended for all ages."
A 2010 "Best of the Best" Title!

Praise for the print version of Starclimber:
"Oppel's books are equally notable for their action-packed plots and superb characterization, a combination that is not always easy to find in the fantasy/science fiction genre. Matt Cruse and Kate de Vries are back for their third adventure...and, not surprisingly, their relationship is pushed to the limits right along with their adrenaline.... True to form, Matt and Kate rise to the challenges, emerging victorious in life—and in love."
    — Hornbook
"Once again, Oppel has assembled intriguing characters, especially Matt's fellow astralnauts, who populate a fast-paced narrative that features enough unpredictable plot twists to keep readers riveted to Matt's story to the finish."
    — Kirkus Reviews
" This sequel to Airborn and Skybreaker continues the fabulous adventures of Matt Cruse and Kate de Vries. In classic steampunk fashion, this book blends the best of Victorian society and science fiction.... Starclimber is a thrilling roller-coaster ride of a book, full of humor and derring-do and guaranteed to keep readers up long past midnight."
