Non-Spoiler Review of Brandon Sanderson’s Starsight

Last year, Brandon Sanderson launched readers into a new world with Skyward, the story of Spensa (callsign: Spin), M-Bot, and the Defiant Defense Force (DDF)—a story that encompasses amazing highs and lows. We learned about the struggles of the human race on the planet of Detritus. We also learned to love Spensa, rooting for her as she fights to become a pilot and struggles with being labeled “The Coward’s Daughter.” And on November 26, everyone will have the chance to find out where the next stage of Spensa’s journey will take us in the highly anticipated sequel, Starsight

Checking in from Beta Flight to provide a non-spoiler review and discussion are Darci Cole, callsign: Blue, and Deana Whitney, callsign: Braid.

A Full-Spoiler Discussion of Brandon Sanderson’s Skyward

Skyward is officially available as of November 6th, which means that it’s now on shelves everywhere, even as as Brandon Sanderson flies around the country on tour. This also means that everyone can finally meet Spensa, the girl who has dreamed her whole life of being a pilot, just like her father. More than anything, she wants to prove herself brave and strong, and do her part to defend what’s left of the human race. When she was young, however, her father mysteriously deserted his team; his desertion cast a shadow over Spensa and left her chances of attending flight school uncertain.

Checking in again from Beta Flight to give a full mission briefing spoiler review are Darci Cole, callsign: Blue, and Deana Whitney, callsign: Braid. If you are not ready for spoilers yet, you can check out our non-spoiler review.

Eagerly anticipated by Sanderson fans, this story is a jet-fueled start to his newest YA series—join us as we launch Skyward!
