Starsight

The Second Skyward Novel

«Firefight is a visual, almost cinematic novel»

Buzzy Mag

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.


Praise for Brandon Sanderson's #1 New York Times Bestselling Reckoners series:

'Another win for Sanderson . . . he's simply a brilliant writer' Patrick Rothfuss
'Action-packed' Entertainment Weekly
'Compelling . . . Sanderson uses plot twists that he teases enough for readers to pick up on to distract from the more dramatic reveals he has in store' AV Club

Anmeldelser

«Firefight is a visual, almost cinematic novel»

Buzzy Mag

«Firefight is a rollercoaster ride of action, entertainment, and humour»

Smash Dragons

«Firefight is filled with a spine-tingling adventure and heart-racing action that promises to satisfy fans both new and old»

Fantasy Book Critic

«Steelheart is the literature equivalent of a blockbuster; episodic and fast-paced with surprises around every turn.»

SCI FI NOW

«A terrifically tall tale, packaging the superhero action into compelling, punchy chapters that keep you reading. It's a fast, feisty read with characters that are skillfully drawn, assassinations, gunfights, physics bending motorcycle chases and a world you can't wait to hear more about.»

SFX

«With this action-packed trilogy opener, Sanderson offers up a resourceful, fearless heroine and a memorable cast-including a strangely humorous, mushroom-obsessed robot-set against the backdrop of a desperate conflict. As the pulse-pounding story intensifies and reveals its secrets, a cliffhanger ending sets things up for the next instalment.»
