    Description

    "Narrator Suzy Jackson's assured, brassy tones and forceful delivery are an exceptional match for Sanderson's high-stakes, battle-driven space opera.... Jackson's gift for characterizations shines - she brings out the humor and heroism in Spensa's young classmates and friends (and the neurotic spaceship MBOT), along with the pain and perseverance of the generations that came before them. This is a high-octane futuristic narrative of hope, sacrifice, and courage, and a fast pace speaks to the rising urgency as war rages above the planet. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award." (AudioFile magazine)

    From Brandon Sanderson, the number one New York Times best-selling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, and the internationally best-selling 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.

    Just awesome!

    A perfect YA novel, everything you'd expect from B. Sanderson. Just the right amount of seriousness and loads of laughter, I absolutely loved it. Suzy Jackson's performance is amazing and fits the novel perfectly, you'll never want to stop, her voice is mesmerising!

    Has Sanderson been reading Craig Alanson???

    Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors. I can not recall a single book of his that I have not loved. (Note: I have not purchased or read his books for children, such as Alcatraz series) It was not a surprise that I would love this book to the point that I listened to the entire 15 1/2 hours, within a two-day period.

    This novel appears to exist outside of the Cosmere Universe; but it is as enthralling as just about any other series he has ever written. (The Way of Kings has its own place at the extreme apex of Sandersons works.) I will not provide a synopsis of the book, as it would be redundant. You can get that from the Publishers summary and countless other reviews. One noticeable difference between this book and most of Brandons other works, is the level of snarky humor that has been intertwined throughout the book. While his other novels are not void of humor, they do tend to take a more serious tone. With this book, it feels as if Brandon was somewhat inspired by Craig Alansons Expeditionary Forces series, including what I will call [Skippy-lite.] I choose to avoid any spoilers; so fans of the E.F. Series, will need to listen or read Skyward to fully understand.

    Overall, this is a somewhat lighter, less-complex novel than many of Sandersons other works; but that should not be considered as criticism. It was truly enjoyable to listen to, and I look forward to the next installment.

    Note: My apologies for somewhat poor punctuation. Writing this review on an iPad, and every time I tried to use quotes or apostrophe punctuation, the previews replaced those with garbled text, such as ‘ and “. I had to remove all contractions and just avoid using problematic punctuation.

    If you like Ender's Game or Sanderson check it out

    Skyward is a bit of a change for Sanderson. Rather than his typical Fantasy works, this is very much a science fiction. Even his other most ‘sci-fi’ type series, Reckoners, is superheros. This is spaceships, strange planets, artificial intelligence, and aliens. In some ways it reminds me of Ender's Game - teens training to fight in an alien war.

    Set on an alien planet, with the scattered survivors of a war with aliens, the story follows a young lady from the lowest rungs of society. He father was a military pilot, who died in disgrace and thus she is now living in disgrace. She becomes a cadet pilot, to try follow in her father’s footstep and redeem his name. Due to her father’s actions she is living outside the main society, which enables her to stumble upon a broken down spaceship unlike any the human or enemy aliens have. If she can fix it and learn to fly, she might just be able to redeem her family’s name and make a difference in the war.

    The book is Young Adult, like Reckoners and Rithmatist. The characters are mostly teens, and there is the typical tropes of the YA genre in here. But it is an exemplar version of YA sci-fi. Like much YA it is told in first person, from the point of view of the young lady. It tells her inner monologue of discovery, self-doubt and (possible) romance. There is the grizzly 'drill sergeant with a heart of gold' type character who trains the cadets.

    Narration by Suzy Jackson is good. She is clear and well paced, with no issues. She differentiates the characters from one another, and the internal voice of the main character from spoken words or general narration. It makes it all very easy to follow. I found the narration to be enjoyable and well done. No audio or production issues at all either.

    One of the best books I've listened to

    I have listed to over 700 books on Audible. Of that, I basically break them into different "buckets" of quality.

    There's the crap bucket. Those are the ones I just can't finish...though I always try to give them at least 2 hours to engage me into the story. I find about 10% of the credits I spend end up in this bucket.

    There's the good bucket. I'm not a perfectionist, and wouldn't in any way expect that from someone else. If the book is engaging enough to keep me listening, the narration nuanced enough so characters stand out from each other, and the general story interesting and unique enough to keep me wanting to listen to it instead of wishing I was listening to something else, then it falls in the "good" bucket. About 85% of the books I listen to land here. Good, definitely worth the credit.

    But then there's the fantastic bucket. The best (maybe) 5%. When you listen to as many books as I do, and you don't have a perfect memory, the "Good" books run together. But the fantastic books stand apart. Their characters (not just the main character) are memorable. The humor is just right. The drama is perfect. They could make movies out of these books.

    This book is a fantastic one. Period.

    Teen / YA

    When I download this book, I had no idea that it was written specifically to a younger audience. I know my 14-year-old self would have been obsessed with this book and while I’d absolutely recommend it to early teens, I definitely would not recommend it to anyone old enough to purchase an R+ movie ticket.

    Since I’m not the story’s target market this leave me conflicted. Do I rate 5 stars based on teenage me or 2.5 stars based on my opinion today?

    It could be my fault for not recognizing this as teen lit in the description somewhere. But I figured if it happened to me it could happen to others too and I’m just here to spread the word. If you’re not keen on hearing the nickname “Jerk-face” used for one of the main characters, this one is a pass.

    Over-rated

    The story was ok but the audience was intended for younger than I anticipated. the use of the words "scud" and "jerkface" were like nails on a chalkboard to me and unfortunately used hundreds of times. I would definitely recommend this book for ages 16 and under though.

    Great for almost any age!

    I have listened to this book twice now and am still in love with the story! The story was wrapped up enough to stand alone yet, knowing it's going to be a series, left enough open to imagine where the next book might take us. Thank you, Sanderson, for another book with strong/brave female characters!

    Sadly disappointing

    I’m a huge BS fan. The Storm light Archives, Mistborn, reckoners, warbreaker, and elantris. I keep all of those books in both audible and word form on all of my devices and book mark them like the Bible. I LOVE his writing, the twists and cataclysmic build ups in the stories that we have each experienced and enjoyed.

    Unfortunately, for Skyward this was not the case. The twists were minimal and expected, I’m used to some great “oh lord that changes everything moments” and this had at best one of those, but still not to the level I expected. When the long anticipated build up occurred it was rushed, poorly explained, and not all that interesting.

    Coward - I felt beaten over the head with this word. It must have been used 500 times over the course of the book. I understand that it was important to the story, but there are synonyms that should have been used to diversify the dialogue.

    The Soul of the Machine - besides having a rather lame name, M-Bot’s character felt bland and continuously annoying. From Brandon’s description of this book where he compares the relationship between Spensa and M-Bot to a young explorer who encounters a dragon egg and develops a relationship with it. I was disappointed by the lack of development and time spent on nurturing and maturing their relationship. M-Bot’s character progression was non-existent and even when opportunities were presented to delve deeper into a meaningful dialogue between Spensa and him, the conversations either stopped after just scratching the surface or were redirected back at Spensa to determine if she was a coward or not.

    I felt like a hamster running on a wheel, reading and reading hoping to find either a pivotal or progressive moment where I could say “yes! I emotionally connect with this” but I never found it in Skyward.

    All that being said, will I still buy the next book? Yes, of course. But it will be with the hope of re-discovering a universe that I actually want to explore.

    Bad Audio Quality

    Whenever the narrator reaches a higher pitch (which is often) the audio is distorted. It seems to happen most when the narrator does a voice which is not Spensa. This is really noticeable and irritating with headphones. Brandon Sanderson is a favorite author of mine, and I was pretty eager to listen to this. I sincerely hope that Audible will address this issue.

    Another fantastic story from Sanderson.

    Brandon Sanderson has once again proven himself as the best fantasy without of our time. Skyward manages to take the tired "Boy and his Dragon" trope and turn it into something fresh and interesting. His talent for natural world building combined with Suzy Jackson's flawless performance create an immersive experience that I did not want to pause for one second. Just like with each of his other series I am left salivating for the next instalment.

    Aim for the stars

    Bevor ich ein neues Buch von Brandon Sanderson höre, habe ich immer ein bisschen Angst, dass das nun das Buch ist, das mir nicht so gut gefällt. Da Skyward ja auch nicht im üblichen Genre stattfindet, war ich hier noch skeptischer. Aber wie immer bisher waren meine Ängste unbegründet und dieses Buch hat mich, wie alle anderen auch, umgehauen. :-) Wie immer gibt es tolle Charaktere und eine tolle Geschichte, die mich von Anfang bis Ende gefesselt hat. Suzy Jackson macht einen fantastischen Job. Schade, dass ich Skyward nicht nochmal zum ersten Mal hören kann. ;-)

    Why did the story have to come to end so quickly? I was just getting into it and suddenly it was over. 😭 What a wonderful performance by the reader and a wonderful story by the author. This is my first book by the author and I am going to download a new one RIGHT NOW!

    New favourite audio narrator?

    I could listen to Suzy Jackson for hours or in this case for more than one book. She has such a pleasant voice and her narration was super entertaining.
    This was actually a reread for me and I enjoyed it enough to give the book all in all 4 stars again. It's good but not a favourite. I will definitely pick the next book up.

    Exceptional

    Even though I am in my late 20s and suspect this work to be targeted at younger people, I enjoyed it greatly. As usual, Brandon Sanderson's work consumes me to a point that I forget to show up for work in time. Suzy Jackson also did an impeccable job! Thanks a lot!
