Publisher's summary

The sequel to the New York Times best seller Skyward!

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, the Mistborn trilogy, and the Stormlight Archive comes the second book in an epic series about a girl with a secret in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.

All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she's a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing. The rumors of his cowardice are true - he deserted his flight during battle against the Krell. Worse, though, he turned against his team and attacked them.

Spensa is sure there's more to the story. And she's sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars - and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.

But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself - and she'll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.

"[A] nonstop, highflying opener." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

"With this action-packed trilogy opener, Sanderson offers up a resourceful, fearless heroine and a memorable cast." (Publishers Weekly)

"Sanderson delivers a cinematic adventure that explores the defining aspects of the individual versus the society.... Fans of Sanderson will not be disappointed." (SLJ)

Good

Liked the book, but my biggest struggle with it was all of the gender pronoun nonsense. I understand that they are aliens, but it seemed to be brought up more than necessary.

Great Female Hero…

I liked the storyline and the vocals were covered well. Narrator was able to distinguish between characters well. Very absorbing and plot didn’t feel slow or rushed. Ready for the next one in the series

Excellent, Brilliant, Thrilling.

The narrator Suzy Jackson brings this stellar sequel to life. The voices for each character are perfectly crafted and executed; very clear enunciation, bringing each character to life.

Sanderson expertly mixes the advancement of plot, character development, and detail diving, balancing out the need of the reader to be informed while facilitating mystery and intrigue.

Highly looking forward to the sequel!
