Description

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 rumours 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. What she learned turned her world upside down. Everything Spensa's been taught is a lie.  

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

I knew it, I knew it

And it was still very satisfying to hear “the secret”
I love this book, very entertaining and also helps putting things in perspective about how we think of people who are different to us.
I don’t know why M-Bot has a Scottish accent but I like it.

Another Branderson Classic!

Fresh feel to a Branderson classic. The characters are so real, even though set in a deep sci-fi story line. The introduction in Skyward explodes into a fantastical narrative that transports the characters and reader to new realms, taking all on a truly emotional journey that keeps the nerds in us guessing what will be around the next corner!

Kind of ok

Follows well on the first book, but from somewhere in the middle I hit a stretch of unrelenting dreariness which put me off the book for a good while. Eventually I soldiered on, and it’s fine at the end.

Skyward was SciFi, Starsight is just Fi

In the first book of the series the author built a solid, planet-sized world based on a believable scenario with just a single superpower added to the hero, and a few shortcuts taken. Anyway the reader had an idea of what should be possible, could anticipate and judge the performance of the characters within that set world. Starsight is different. All the wold's boundaries are off and the made-up things are so numerous that there is nothing to relate to. There is always a new surprise from a new source, and the final "Nth dimension ex machina" is the worst. The hero does nothing, she just watches as new circumstances crop up, unexplained, all around her. Maybe if this was the 4th or 5th book in the series, and the facts were introduced more slowly, it could have made sense. But as it is, I don't understand what happened, how much of a happy end it was and if it was a happy end at all. Quite disappointing.

Im just in love with this Universe

Let me start by saying that Skyward (The first book) was better.
The pacing on this one was a little odd. And there are quite a few moments where not all that much happens. But all in all it was a great read. It's a great follow up, that expanses the universe a bit and answer some questions that the previous book left open. At the same time you are left with even more questions at the end though. It stops on a cliffhanger, which only irritates me because i now have to wait until the 3rd & 4th book comes out. And who knows when that will be.

To summarise: It just sucked me in and i didnt want to stop. it's worse that the first book but its still an amazing read that i definitely recommend!

Ein sehr guter zweiter Teil

Die Geschichte entwickelt sich weiter und einige schwierige Aspekte des ersten Teils werden schlüssig zusammengeführt und erklärt.

Sanderson at his best!

After I really, really enjoyed the first book I was looking forward to the second one a lot - and the wait was definitely worth it.

First things first, the more fans and the more attention a book gets, the more theories the fans will develop. It gets therefore more and more difficult for the author to fulfill these expectations, since the theories can be a bit "over the top".
Sometimes a stone is just a stone and not a passage to another world, for example.

I have the feeling that Skyward may face similar problems, with fans hoping for "mindblowing" explanations where in reality the actual explanations are much more simple in the end. Even I, trying desperately not to fall for that kind of "biased thoughts" sometimes caught myself thinking "wait - seriously? It's that simple? That's all there is to it?"

But that's not really the author who is to blame for that - on the contrary, sometimes it's refreshing, that a "stone is just a stone".

Brandon Sanderson does an amazing job keeping tension up - where other Authors tend to have "fillers" or a few minutes of descriptions of travels and landscapes, Sanderson tends to skip those parts. This however, can sometimes give a bit of a "rushed" feeling - some books have 30 hours of listening time and you get the feeling they could've fit in 15 - this one is exactly the opposite. Some people like that, I am also one of those, even if that means that the audiobook is over much sooner than I would prefer.

Sophie Aldred is doing an excellent job as well - even as a german I have no problems understanding her and her voice for M-Bot is especially nice and gives the already hilarious "robot" his own personality. She is also capable of impressive amounts of acting, especially when it comes to characters in stress or panic - which really feels more realistic and emotional than I am used to from other audiobooks.

This audiobook definitely deserves the 5 Stars and I can only hope that the next books will keep up the standard, which - judging by the quality of other works of Sanderson - I am sure it will.

Meandering cartoonish YA-Fiction.

This story was really not for me. I found the plot progression to much forced by MacGuffins and somehow unbelivable. Some characters are neat but more in an anime/cartoon style.
The narration of Sophie Aldred was ok but sometimes the scottish accent to thick.
