SYLO by D.J. MacHale


Praise for SYLO

"Absolutely un-put-down-able, more exciting than an X-box and a rollercoaster combined." 
Kirkus, starred review

"If you're a fan of The Maze Runner and Alex Rider, you might want to pick up SYLO... A fast-paced read and a huge cliffhanger." EW.com

"[An] extremely high-octane story that's the equivalent to a summer movie blockbuster." Booklist

"An entertaining and creepy tale." Publishers Weekly

"This action-fueled, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it adventure... should have teen reader clamoring for the next installment." VOYA

"MacHale pens some terrific and unique action scenes... will leave readers hungry for the next installment." SLJ

"I'm not sure anyone does suspense quite like D.J. MacHale. I ripped through the pages of SYLO, a relentlessly fast-paced, intriguing, expertly-written tale that leaves you breathless and satisfied, yet wanting more. Highly recommended." James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series

SYLO will have your pulse racing and your head spinning. Make plans to stay up all night finishing it." Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of the Gone series

"SYLO is D.J. MacHale at his finest -- he's crafted a book full of friendship, mystery and heart-pounding, spine-tingling adventure." Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author

“Packed with thrilling chases, daring escapes, and breathtaking action sequences, SYLO will grab the reader's attention from the first page and not let go until the final, stunning conclusion!” —Michael Carroll, author of The Quantum Prophecy

“I have no fingernails left! I chewed off every last one of them while I fretted over the fate of Tucker and his friends. Well done, Mr. MacHale." —PJ Haarsma, author of the Softwire series


Does Tucker Pierce have what it takes to be a hero when the U.S. military quarantines his island?

Fourteen-year-old Tucker Pierce prefers to fly under the radar. He’s used to navigating around summer tourists in his hometown on idyllic Pemberwick Island, Maine. He’s content to sit on the sidelines as a backup player on the high school football team. And though his best friend Quinn tells him to “go for it,” he’s too chicken to ask Tori Sleeper on a date. There’s always tomorrow, he figures. Then Pemberwick Island is invaded by a mysterious branch of the U.S. military called SYLO. And sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option for Tucker, because tomorrow may never come.

It’s up to Tucker, Quinn, and Tori to uncover the truth about the singing aircraft that appears only at night—and the stranger named Feit who’s pushing a red crystal he calls the Ruby that brings unique powers to all who take it. Tucker and his friends must rescue not just Pemberwick Island, but the fate of the world—and all before tomorrow is too late.

#1 New York Times bestselling author D.J. MacHale brings his brilliant plotting and breathless pacing to SYLO, the first in this ultimate end-of-the-world adventure trilogy.
