Spensa's world has been under attack for hundreds of years. An alien race called the Krell leads onslaught after onslaught from the sky in a never-ending campaign to destroy humankind. Humanity's only defense is to take to their ships and fight the enemy in the skies. Pilots have become the heroes of what's left of the human race. Spensa has always dreamed of being one of them; of soaring above Earth and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with her father's - a pilot who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, placing Spensa's chances of attending flight school somewhere between slim and none. No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, but she is still determined to fly. And the Krell just made that a possibility. They've doubled their fleet, making Spensa's world twice as dangerous . . . but their desperation to survive might just take her skyward . . .

I am not interested in finishing this book at this time. I really do not like the main character and her rash decisions. I don't like the adults in the story, either. I am now officially writing off Sanderson's YA work, and will stick only to his adult books.

Were you wondering if Brandon Sanderson can write sci-fi? I was. Seriously, for the first time, I was scared. You don't want your favorite fantasy author to crash and burn. Surprise, surprise, although Spensa may had crashed and burned hundred times in the DDF simulator, Brandon' Sanderson does not. So can he write sci-fi? Yes. He can. He proves in Skyward, that he understands how language, genres and characters work. And thus, he produces yet another amazing book, which is in so many ways different than his other works (it has starships, people, and starships are almost as cool as dragons. Or large evil-slaying talkative swords. You know?) But Skyward is still true to Sanderson's style, with all those gut-wrenching plot-twists and the tendency to make you feel really, really, really emotional when he inflicts pain on your favourite character.

I can see what all the hype is about now. A really good story with a flawed hero you can root for. Good world-building. And even a slightly insane AI character to boot. I really enjoyed it, and can't wait to get my hands on the second book. ( )
