The sequel to the New York Times bestseller Skyward! From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, the Mistborn trilogy, and the Stormlight Archive comes the second book in an epic series about a girl with a secret in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future. 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 rumors 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. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie. But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself--and she'll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to. "[A] nonstop, highflying opener." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review "With this action-packed trilogy opener, Sanderson offers up a resourceful, fearless heroine and a memorable cast."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Sanderson delivers a cinematic adventure that explores the defining aspects of the individual versus the society. . . . Fans of Sanderson will not be disappointed." --SLJ "It is impossible to turn the pages fast enough." --Booklist "He's simply a brilliant writer. Period." --Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times bestseller The Name of the Wind, on Brandon Sanderson.… (mer)

Winter 2020 (December);

Book 2, and it being so long into this series already being published I got very lucky to not have to wait all the years, and to just have this next book at the press of a button right after finishing [b:Skyward|36642458|Skyward (Skyward, #1)|Brandon Sanderson|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1531845177l/36642458._SY75_.jpg|58411143] (though I will now be at the mercy of the most-of-year wait for [b:Nowhere|43606157|Nowhere (Skyward, #3)|Brandon Sanderson|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/book/50x75-a91bf249278a81aabab721ef782c4a74.png|67851209] to be published next fall/winter now, too).

I did not entirely know what to expect coming into this book, and I though that was a low grade thing, with some easy assumptions, and then Sanderson shoved all those assumptions out an airlock by less than 10% into the book, and it was magical. The whole world got flipped upside down entirely and we turned into a familiar trope setup but that had a whole lot of unexpected reveals within it about the past, and humanity, and just how big the rest of this universe is.

I ended up falling in love with a ton of new characters (while, also, absolutely having feelings for the ones we saw in our omnipresent 'Sandersonian' interludes). We solved two really big mysteries that I absolutely was blown out of the water to never have even consider connecting. We had a big reveal for another character, even though it was down in a very on-the-side, more-coming-later fashion that's so very Sanderson thinking incredibly long game for books and books later rather than just chapters.

I really can't wait to see what the DDF does with all this information, or what happens with our epic cliffhanger of an ending, how everyone finds each other again (and how the book 1 cast learns to mesh with the book 2 cast), what's at the heart of Detrius. I'm absolutely breathless with excitement for more of this world. ( )

Like some others, I think this book was a let down from the first book in the series, especially given Brandon Sanderson's immense talent. Spensa's relationships with M-Bot, Doomslug, and the other fighter pilots was the backbone of the first book, especially her inability to follow orders. Much of this is missing in the sequel, when she heads off with squad leader permission to avert an all-out war. Masquerading as someone else, she is training with a group of recruits to attack her home plant, Detritus. While I liked the furry little aliens, most seemed ho-hum to me, although some credits for Vapor. I disliked the simmering love story, and did not care much for M-Bot's emotional crisis. While Spensa continued as a strong female leader, she seemed much more pliant about following orders, and giving them to her general back on Detritus was a stretch. ( )

Spensa Nightshade saved the world in the first book, [b:Skyward|36642458|Skyward (Skyward, #1)|Brandon Sanderson|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1531845177l/36642458._SY75_.jpg|58411143], but as book two starts, the world is expanding. The world used to be a cavern and a spaceport. Now it's the whole planet and the shells surrounding it.

The planet population has finally learned what all the attacks were about. The planet is a prison, a reserve, to keep the aggressive and dangerous humans away from the civilized parts of the universe. Not to eradicate them but to keep them harmless. Like in a zoo.

Spensa is not happy being in a zoo or a prison. As an aggressive human she wants more so when presented with the chance, she takes it.

This is still a Young Adult book but there is much more complexity and nuances in this one compared to the first book. The black and white world is suddenly all kinds of colours which makes it much interesting to follow Spensa, M[assacre]-Bot and Doomslug around. ( )
