Didn't want to read this book even though i'm a huge Sanderson fan because its a YA. I looked up some pre-reviews and decided to try it out myself. Read it in 3 days, awesome book. A little bit of a slow read, great climax.4 total books are planned for this series and its 100% being shelved next to Stormlight.
Mr. Sanderson keeps surprising with his ability to create truly catching stories and worlds.I’d definitely recommend it to all sci-fi fans. Skyward is more YA centered with a teenager hero. So this time no Stormlight-like epicness. However the plot is nice, the action - thrilling, the heroine - alive.The only drawback - now we have to wait a year for the next book.
Skyward and other Brandom Sanderson books shine because their settings are always original, the narrative resources are not abused, and the story exquisitely combines depth and speed.It is, by the description of it, not such a difficult formula, yet the vast majority of sci-fi and fantasy authors fail at it... miserablyI hope we don't have to wait long for the second installment of this one.
It's Brandon Sanderson! What more is there to say!!Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
This is a wonderful book, classic Sanderson at his finest. You'll be cheering along for the amazing ending--I know I was!!
