You get to choose who you are Legacy memories of the past can serve us well But we cannot let them define us When heritage becomes a box instead of an inspiration it has gone too far Skyward is the start of a brand new YA Sci Fi series by Brandon Sanderson You all know that I love Brandon Sanderson s work especially The Stormlight Archive and Mistborn and I knew I couldn t let this new release pass me by without immediately reading And friends this was nothing short of a treat This book follows a young girl named Spensa who wants nothing than to follow in her father s footsteps of being a space pilot and defending her home planet from an alien race called the Krell who are relentless in their attacking Unfortunately her father did something unforgivable and the rest of her community truly will never forget People need stories child They bring us hope and that hope is real Spensa lives in future version of our galaxy on a planet named Detritus But most of the inhabitants live underground while only a few cities are above And in this society people s job positions are supposed to be based off their test scores that will influence them into learning their strengths but we soon find out that pilots are mostly found based on their family lineage Brandon Sanderson really talks about privilege and how outside forces can really impact a person s life while a last name can completely make someone s future Spensa learns this very uickly but she is still determined to not only go to flight school but to graduate at the top of her class regardless of the people who are willing to do anything to stop her And Spensa has to go through some really horrible stuff No spoilers but even her family is forced to live off of rats while never being able to see the sky but living in fear of a lifetime war that never ceases But Spensa s determination is awe inspiring but she soon realizes that flight school is completely ruthless and very deadly It turns out that strange little girls grow up to be strange young women Yet one of the best characters I ve read all year is easily Spensa She not only makes you feel immense empathy because of her situation but just because she s a little girl that has only known war She s passionate she s caring she s so very dedicated And she s hilariously funny This book made me laugh out loud so many times But mostly I was rooting for her from the first to the last page And she really showcases that everyone has a choice regardless of the things that life has forced upon them and regardless of the mistakes of their parents She was such a wonderful character and a shining light in 2018 s protagonists And I loved the constant discussion of what makes a coward and what makes a hero And about all those grey areas in between those things And how a different view can really turn those two titles upside down completely Spensa also meets many new colleagues some of which who are also chasing the same dream as her and some who have had it forced upon them And dare I say there is a start of an enemies to lovers relationship in this book Lord help me I am already invested But my heart truly belongs to M Bot the AI driven ship that Spensa finds A lot of people have compared this book to How To Train Your Dragon and that is so damn accurate but I actually think I loved M Bot even than Toothless And that is uite the recommendation friends I also think I just have a soft spot in my heart for sentient ships if I m being completely honest But I have no doubts that if you pick up this book that you will fall in love with M Bot too Okay so even though I loved this reading experience so much and I truly think Brandon Sanderson comes up with the best worlds in SFF two things bothered me about this book One is a character death and I won t go into spoilers but if you know me at all you ll know why this upset me And Brandon should have done better Secondly the ending was a masterpiece Yeah you read that right The ending was magnificent but it truly overshadowed the rest of the book and made it feel like the 500 pages I just read were some precursor to the actual story that will begin in book two Claim the stars Spensa Overall I did adore this book It was just what I needed I actually was feeling really slumpy before I picked this up and not only did it rectify that but it reminded me why I love books and stories and fictional worlds so much I know Brandon Sanderson isn t for everyone but he truly is a master at his craft and every book and series he touches turns to gold And his world building is honestly on a tier above all else in the genre And again I cannot wait for book two And I cannot wait to learn everything about a certain blue and orange slug Blog Instagram Twitter Tumblr Youtube Twitch Content and trigger warnings for bullying loss of a loved one battle scenes and war themes

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series Words of Radiance and the Mistborn trilogy 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 skywa. Skyward felt like a preludeThe raw energy of the closing pages rattles I started every sentence without knowing where it was going half terrified of where it might end My heart was still pounding from the airy danger of it even after the turning of the last page When I looked up the bedlam of motion inside the coffeeshop where I sat was an underwater warble and I felt the sort of disorientation you only get when you are pulled out of one world and back into another That s what any good story does I suppose Is anything fair He smiled Death is He treats us all the same Spensa Spin Nightshade was going to be a pilot As a 7 year old she dreamed of it with the raw hope of a child who looked at the stars as if her very soul had unfurled and stretched out to meet it As a 17 year old young woman she knew it with the boundless confidence of a youth who assumed the world will contort itself to accommodate her desiresBut Spensa s name was full of her father s cowardice in a way nobody could miss It was a burden and a responsibility For ten years Spensa had tried to piece together a father who was gone from rumors that spoke of him deserting his team of betraying his people They spewed at her They poured at her But when it is all boiled away what is always left is that wanting hard and spare and alive to prove herself to clear her father s name and to fight for humanity s survivalEven if that meant breaking the rules leaving them smashed and glittering in her wake Remember Spensa You get to choose who you are Legacy memories of the past can serve us well But we cannot let them define us When heritage becomes a box instead of an inspiration it has gone too far The novel the first in Branderson s latest series soared through the autumn and winter of 2018 on a frenzy of love drawing a cornucopia of rave reviews and dominating bestseller lists And I have to say it is well deservedClocking in at than 500 pages the novel reuires patience as it unfolds in slow but ultimately satisfying layers The meticulous plotting comes off as the work of someone in absolute charge of his craft The journey may occasionally feel protracted for some but the latter section is particularly dynamic full of even intrigue adventure and go for the throat thrills Skyward brims with details that build out into a vast intricate world which remarkably still leaves plenty to explore It s a good thing that Sanderson has 4 books planned for this series as there s a lot to set up It s clear that the author is only getting warmed up the political and intergalactic machinations that swirled around Spensa had much left to play out And if Sanderson s goal was to make his readers clamor for I m pleased to say that he accomplished that goal with flying colorsSkyward is fun but there s a deep layer of story at work Sanderson paints real world concerns like classism war profiteering and patriotic jingoism with piercing resonance The novel examines with brilliance and verve the dangerous culture of martyrdom that is deeply embedded in the DDF the Defiant Defense Force and which had for many years been preserved in false perfectionSpensa who recited Defiance like a litany and ripped herself to rags against the sharp and ugly poetry of it determined to never be called a coward is confronted with a truth like ice water the DDF bleeds great gouts of young pilots in the deadly battles against the Krell but spares the sons and daughters of the elite who are pulled out from the Academy by their wealthy and well connected parents when the peril becomes too real Spensa had thought she could join the DDF and vie for the only chance she would ever have at glory she built her life around that dream but Spensa soon discovers that her government s talk of glory and heroism all their promises wore a thinner veil than a funeral shroud Spensa didn t want to be a part of this machine any But the machine didn t care The machine went on grinding and catching her up in its gearsSpensa s character development doesn t stop there All her life the mystery of what had really happened the day her father was uneuivocally branded a coward hung over her and she had hardly dared hope that she might get the answers she longed for like the prize at the end of a long and difficult game When Spensa does the truth of it strikes her backhanded and her heart for the second time splits in two and goes to war against itself The truth and the sharp certainty of it lodges itself inside Spensa is never how we want it clear cut and shining a perfect moral center leading us all back home Sometimes the answers we need don t match the uestions we re asking He looked up at me And sometimes the coward makes fools of wiser men That is I think what I relished most about this book the way the author gives his characters plenty of room to fumble and triumph He made a list of characters that kept getting longer then heartbreakingly shorter and injected them with enough interiority to keep his readers riveted Spensa s journey in particular is wonderful to watch and her potential narrative paths for the seuel are very intriguingI can t wait to see where Sanderson takes her ko fi blog twitter tumblr
