This is a great easy to read adventure story. Skyward is on level with the likes of Rithmatist, Elantris and Warbreaker.
As someone who only reads Cosmere books by Brandon Sanderson so far, I took a chance with Skyward because the theme sounded interesting (and because it was intended to be Cosmere at one point). I do not regret it at all. The book is fantastic. It has an Ender's Game sort of feel to it. I absolutely recommend.
I never knew what was coming, or if I did, I didn't know how it was going to happen. Wonderful read!
Read in one day and night, could not put down!
Best non-Cosmere book, to date, from Brandon. Characters are vivid and we'll developed. Protagonist has very believable and compelling story/growth. Love it when Brandon ventures into scifi and this knocks it out of the park. Bless your stars.
