Description

From Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, and the internationally bestselling Mistborn series, comes the first book in an epic new series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.

Spensa's world has been under attack for decades. Now pilots are the heroes of what's left of the human race, and becoming one has always been Spensa's dream. Since she was a little girl, she has imagined soaring skyward and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with her father's--a pilot himself who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, leaving Spensa's chances of attending flight school at slim to none.

No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, yet fate works in mysterious ways. Flight school might be a long shot, but she is determined to fly. And an accidental discovery in a long-forgotten cavern might just provide her with a way to claim the stars.

Praise for Skyward:

"Another win for Sanderson . . . he's simply a brilliant writer. Period."--Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 08, 2018 – In a mysterious world called Detritus where humans live below the surface, 16-year-old Spensa must overcome her deceased starfighter pilot father's reputation as a coward following his alleged desertion. She has always hoped to follow in his footsteps and defend her home from the increasingly devastating attacks of the alien Krell. After earning a cadet spot in the Defiant Defense Force, Spensa pushes to prove herself amid relentless, unforgiving, possibly fatal training. Worse, there are those determined to keep Spensa from becoming a pilot at all, for fear that she'll turn out like her father. But Spensa has a surprise of her own: she's discovered a long-abandoned starfighter of unknown origin that could change her luck, and the war, once and for all. With this action-packed trilogy opener, Sanderson (Steelheart) offers up a resourceful, fearless heroine and a memorable cast including a strangely humorous, mushroom-obsessed robot set against the backdrop of a desperate conflict. As the pulse-pounding story intensifies and reveals its secrets, a cliffhanger ending sets things up for the next installment. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

Well, it was worth it.

My college grades plummeted due to this book, but it was far better than expected. I expected it to be really good. If you don’t read this, your going to spend your money on some other book which I can promise isn’t as good. Don’t believe me? Try it out. I challenge you- no regrets.

Not again!

I am currently in the middle of every single series of books Sanderson is currently working on and once again he leaves me hoping for the next one.

Skyward is a wonderful book which seamlessly puts you into a familiar story with true Sanderson twists. It’s a novel you feel you know but he doesn’t disappoint throwing you curves that put a smile on your face and makes you fall in love with a story about a outcast of a girl, and quirky spaceship and a slug..... need I say more.

Excellent Variation

This story is a well-formed tale that expands upon the author’s already wide range of plot mechanisms and genres. The main character is dynamic and balanced equally with flaws and strengths. I read it all in half a day because I couldn’t put it down. Always I look forward to more works by Brandon, whatever the genre, whatever the plot.
I absolutely recommend this read.
